Tuesday: A very hot and humid easy 4. Since I honestly don't know what is up with my body, we are going to do one more easy week. It was 97% humidity and we could feel it. We went out a little later, and I think that we are going to have to get out earlier or the dogs won't be able to join us. Stella and Deuce looked like giant puff balls when we got done due to the humidity. My foot felt great during the run, and I even ran in my compression sleeve for PF upon my chiro's request. I iced post run, but I did feel like it bothered me on and off throughout the day, even in the compression sleeve and heel cup. I am going to go invest in some OOFOS sandals as well, because anything I can do at this point to continue running is worth the money and I have secretly always wanted a pair anyway :)
Wednesday: Broken record here, slept in until time to get ready to take Mr. A to tutoring. Mom is still here, so knew I could get out later on my bike and she could babysit. The day ending up being quite nice for a June day in KS, so instead of me going on a solo bike ride, we hit up Mt. Mitchell and did some family hiking.
|Kudos to Mel for carrying this little kitty almost a mile home wrapped up in her t shirt!|
Friday: Cross training. Post working both jobs and playing with our new shop kitty, I headed out on my bike with lots of water. I didn't get barre done as I had planned, but i am hoping my PT exercises that I do daily are counting for something.

Saturday: an easy 4. Coach wanted to hold off on anymore long runs till we pow wowed about what my chiro thinks and how my foot does. I may be under trained for pacing my friend, but I have been running for years now, so I don't think it will be an issue if this training cycle is a little abnormal. I slept in (AGAIN) and thought about running on the mill. Instead, stupidly I went out around 8ish and tried to run from the shop, which meant lots of pavement. I took my Nathan hand held filled with ice and water and my headsweats buff. I felt pretty good for about 3 miles and then it just hit me and I was super nauseous. I pretty much walked/wogged the final mile. I hate summer running and it hates me back equally. I tried to keep my headsweats buff wet at all times, but the wind from the south kept drying it out and I quickly ran out of water. That's not good since it was only 4 miles.
Sunday: an easy 3 miles. I didn't get up early but I could have. We decided to let the kitty spend the night at the house, and Sparky decided at 4 am that he was up and ready to party. I managed to get him back to sleep and go back to sleep myself, but I was up again at 7 am and out the door at 7:30. Again, it was 80 and high humidity, so the dogs got to stay at home. They are already getting pretty restless and unhappy with being left at home, but I do not want to jeopardize heat stroke. I took a few walk breaks and listened to my body more on this run versus hitting the point of too late.
