But not a mile short. Got my 4 miles in today instead, and boy did I need it. Work has been kind of nuts and today was no exception. So I was ready to hit the park. There was some group of kids and moms and they were all gathered around a spot on the running/walking trail, so I decided to detour out into the neighborhood. Lots more shade and something different as well. Also a few hills and I guess better training than going around and around the same .9 mile surface.
The heat is still here, but it wasn't awfully humid. I'm still a sweaty girl when I finish.
Did the Runner's Core Level 1.1 again too. I really felt it in my abs last time, and this time will be no exception. But I also was able to do all the sit-ups today so that is a win. The cats want to help - cat hair + sweaty girl + yoga mat = yuck. Just in case you were wondering.
Ordered Prancer (aka Mr. Dancer) a couple of new pair of shorts from Road Runner Sports. They have wonderful customer service, a great shoe finder, and their prices aren't half bad either. Both of us got new shoes from them this year - him the Brooks Beast which he really loves for its excellent support and width, and the Asics Gel Kayano 19 for me. I'm really an Asics girl at heart I guess - their shoes seem to just melt onto my feet. They also have a wider width (I've been told I have big feet for a female runner - how rude!!).
Anyway, I also ordered myself a new fuel belt thing and also some salt caps. I've heard good things about salt caps, and since I tend to be an empty runner and have a very hard time taking in anything but water during a run I hope that they will be helpful this summer as both temps and distances increase.
I'm going to go get in the shower so I can go to bed with wet hair again tonight. Fun times. Until Wednesday - keep dancing!
