It’s 9:30pm and I’m drinking coffee.
Hi, my name is Jena, and I’m addicted to coffee.
I’ve really been sucking at the blog lately, sorry about that.
This week has been extra lame in the work out department. I went running. twice. Nothing else. That is horrible.
After today’s run I am feeling rejuvenated and ready to get back in the running game.
Chris said he wanted to run today so we waited until 7pm and then headed out for a 2 mile run. We decided that we would focus on distance, rather than speed. Earlier this week when we ran we went out to fast, and Chris got worn out quickly, plus his breathing was a hot mess so that wasn’t helping.
I have no idea why but he was trying to take a breath with every step.. Hyperventilate much?
Today his breathing was much better, plus, it was 100 degrees out while we were running.
It was actually pouring rain. It started raining almost as soon as we started out on our run. It was also thundering & lightening, but it was pretty far away.
We went out and back 2.25 miles. Then Chris got the bike and went back out. He dropped the bike on the side of the road and ran with me a little bit more. All in all I ran 3.74 miles, which is my longest run since March.
I now completely understand why people enjoy running in the rain. It was so refreshing. There was no humidity. Man, it felt so nice. I’m hoping for rain all week so I can have more awesome runs.
I feel totally refreshed now. I’m ready to start running again… Until tomorrow when it’s hot as heck again and I’m melting a quarter mile in.
