1. Where the heck is summer around here? Mother Nature is waffling. It’s like she’s saying to herself, “Hmm, I really did enjoy spring this year. Maybe it shouldn’t be summer even though it says so on the calendar.” The last few days were beautiful: sunny, hot, verging on being just this side of unpleasant. Today we get this:
2. My first ever 2-a-day went so well! I took Spud out for a 7.5km steady hour long jog in the morning on Tuesday. It was a little later than I should have been out simply because I was a hot, beet red, sweaty mess by the end of it. I completed my second run (a tempo) with my clinic, going 3.2km in 19:46. That’s about a 6:10/km average. I was good until about 2km and then ran with a friend who I know is faster for the last bit. I was about ready to die, but I blame that mostly on the earlier run. My legs felt heavy, but I was super pleased. Best thing of all was that I felt fine the next morning.
3. I didn’t mention it in my post on Tuesday because things were still being decided, but here are my teammates for Hood To Coast. Make sure you check them all out – they are an amazing bunch of women and I’m so excited to meet them all!
