I’m trying really hard not to focus on the fact that the weather this weekend is going to be absolutely miserable.
Gasparilla 2010 I was a new runner at that time, and clearly I had no idea how to dress. I’d probably wear shorts & compression sleeves if I could go back to that day. According to my recap it was 41 at race start. Definitely would have worn shorts. What was I thinking wear tights?
Gasparilla 2011 – the race started with a yellow flag warning. I still had a pretty decent race despite the heat.
and this year…. who knows what will happen.
Hopefully the clock will say 1:14:XX – Hm, I just pace calculated that.. that’s an 8:02 pace. that sounds scary.
After work I came home and attempted to put music on my MP3 player. 45 minutes & one piece of toast later I still didn’t have any music on my MP3 player so I threw the MP3 player out the window and headed out for my run, music-less, again.
I’m pretty sure someone tied bricks to the bottom of my shoes. My legs were so heavy it was all I could do to move one foot in front of the other. I really hope that these last two runs are not indicative of what is going to happen on Saturday.
5 miles, 44:23 ugh
I had planned on running on Wednesday, but I think I’m going to do yoga, or rest, or something besides running. I think my legs are just worn out. Plus, it was approximately 80* when I set out for my run.
It’s going to be a long summer. I don’t think summer really ever left, it’s just been hiding and comes out to play every so often. stupid jerk.
Earlier, while I was heat stroking on my 5 mile run, I was thinking that I should go north during the winter because then I’d have an actual cool season to run in. But then what happens when I come back to Florida during the summer? It’s hot as hell. I just can’t win. Maybe I should live in a different state..country?
If I could move anywhere, where should I go? What state/country has the best running climate? (preferably flat, ha)
