yes. It's that time of year. As Frank put it today "ohhh..the 4am hour". Why does 4:45am seem SO MUCH WORSE then 5:00am? It's only 15 minutes less sleep - just got to bed 15 minutes earlier right? WRONG. For some reason - it's so much harder to crawl out of bed when the first number on the clock is '4'. Anyway - today we met at 5:30 to do our normal Wednesday run. And it was a killer. My car said it was 84 our at 5:15. 84!! Who knows what the humidity was - and the heat index..I don't even want to go there.
Anyway - the run was a tough one. We got in around 6 miles - but it was just hot. Sweat just dropping off of us like - well - like we where running in hell. But we where troopers and totally rocked it out. Not every run can be perfect right?
So I think the 4am hour is going to start rolling in next week. Meeting at 5:15? Well, at least we are somewhat beating the heat. Unlike the poor tourists I see running when I go home for lunch. Crazies. There is a freaking heat warning outside people! Why are you running at the hottest time of the day?!?! Kills me.
This weekend is My First Tri over at Eglan Air force Base. This race is suppose to be a blast. It's a 200 meter swim (in the gulf I think) 8 mile bike and a 2 mile run! How much fun does that sound?!?! I know, it's not my first, but I had to do it. Plus little Chloe and a few other friends and their kids are racing as well. It is going to be so much fun watching the kids. I'm sure I'll have tons of great pictures to share!
Oh - and in case you where wondering (which I'm sure you where) masters practice is going very well. It's nice to have someone to tell you what to do instead of having my own workouts. And it also keeps me on top of my intervals...and..um..from just floating around and talking.
Hope everyone is having a great week - and congrats to everyone who raced IM Kansas 70.3 (and Amy who totally ROCKED IT OUT with a PR) and Sam who fought the rain in Ironman 70.3 Boise!!
