It’s been hot.
I’m pretty sure the temps reached 90 or more every day last week. We were also under an air quality alert. I kept up with pilates and I got one treadmill run in before my 5K on Friday.
Luckily, the 5K was at night time after the sun went down. It was one of the smallest races I had ever participated in, there were only about 50 people there! It was a glow run so we had glow-in-the-dark shirts and glow sticks. So fun! The course was really hilly and I was feeling pretty proud of myself around 2.5 miles for running the whole time. Then, the hill came. It was steep, really steep and about a half a mile long. I am used to running up hill, it’s kind of unavoidable here in New England, but not like this one! I made it about half way up and had to walk. I still ended up finishing in 34:38! Which is a really good time for me. My PR is 34 something…. I should keep track a little better! So I was excited.
This is the only picture I took and my eyes are closed!!
On the agenda for this week will be more pilates and more running. I would also like to take a hike, but it seems whenever I have a day in mind to go hiking, it rains. My oldest son also wants to start running with me, so I will be going on some little runs with him. Is there any way to teach a 4-year-old to pace themselves? He goes full bore all the time!
