First training run
Sadly, all I keep thinking about is the heat. I hate the heat (have I ever mentioned that?). But, a fall race means starting training in the summer. Bah! So, out today at 10:00 a.m. in 85 degree heat to run 30 minutes. I believe the car said it was 91 when I got back in.
It wasn't the best 30 minutes I've ever run. I had to walk a bit more than I wanted. My left knee kinda hurt. But, I got out there. Ran more than I walked. And stayed the course the whole 30 minutes.
Hanging out at home now with frozen broccoli on my knee and watching Dr. Who with some cold water. Gotta protect the body if I want to run.
