Monday: Rest day. After not getting much sleep the night before, I needed a rest day. Note to self, don't work out right before bed. I finally popped two melatonins around 11:30 pm. Those who know me know that I am usually out by 9-9:30 pm, so this is SUPER late for me!
Tuesday: Easy 6. I know I sound like a broken record. Holy moly, 100% humidity and 76 degrees at 5 am. Dogs were a no go and we were drenched in sweat in the first quarter mile. We did see about 8 meteors during our run which was super fun! I took it easy as it is a cut back week and just enjoyed what there was to enjoy.
Wednesday: Easy 4. It was a little less hot and humid, but still icky. We took the dogs since it was a shorter run and they managed fine. The only problem was the dang gravel fairy had dumped a TON of rocks on our route and they were very hard to run on. They were very loose, big, and covered the entire road from side to side. In the dark it was very hard to navigate and stay upright, so we had to take it very easy. Later, we got an invitation to go spend some time at Widgets (our local Chucky cheese, but way a more fun place). Since my hubby is the boss, he said go for it and we had SO much fun! I love that he still has friendships with his preschool friends and wish more of them were in class together. I am not even going to tell you how much it cost to "win" that Narwhal.
Thursday: Easy 6. Another 6 ixer. Another humid run, plus a full moon, plus the start of school! How is my kiddo already in 2nd grade! This is his last year at his current school and it's so bittersweet. I have loved being able to walk him to school every day and while I will still get to walk him to the shuttle bus for his next school, I will really miss the staff and teachers at his very first elementary school.
