Getting off on the wrong foot
Thursday, August 25, 2011
I had my first group run with my Half marathon training class last night. I was very nervous because tun time was much earlier in the day than I normally run.
Notice the Hi at the time was 103F!!! Why anyone would be outside in this temperature is beyond me, much less run in it! lol
Needless to say I did not have my best run. Actually walked almost half of it. I'm disappointed because I hate not getting in a full run whenever I go out. But I knew that I wasn't given the change in local.
My plan is to spend an hour outside everyday at the same time as this scheduled run to get acclimated to the heat. No idea if it will work. Also I'm gonna find one of the slower runners that ran the whole 30 minutes and stalk, I mean follow along with them.
Next group run is Saturday at 7am. I'm not as worried. I mean how hot can it be that early?!?!
