Me, Robin. Charlie and I were away in Joplin for the weekend so we weren’t able to go running on Sunday morning as we would have liked. August has finally heated up, and this weekend was the hottest (~100F) we’ve had in months. We had planned to go in the evening when theoretically the temps would have cooled off, but when it was looking like that wasn’t going to happen, we decided to change plans and do part of our run inside at the Rec Center. We ran from my house to the Rec Center (1.5 m) in the 92F temps, which surprisingly wasn’t that bad, then did 3 miles on the treadmills inside, and the 1.5 m back in the heat. It was probably the easiest and felt like the quickest long run ever. Plus it was nice to have easy access to water at the Rec Center.
We’re still annoyed at the treadmills, though. I did a mile on one at 5.5 or 5.7 mph or something, and then two miles on a different machine at 6.5 mph. 6.5 mph on that machine was slower than 5.5 mph on the other machine. That’s a pretty big difference. It’s discouraging when you’re like, “Okay, I know I can run a 10 minute mile… why can’t I keep up with this??”
Anyway, two weeks down in training. Ten to go.
