|The Real Deal.|
|Nothing like a bottle of water to hydrate after class (while pumping gas)!|
Tuesday, was a great 3.1 mile run in the evening. The hope was to try and get it in before work, but ultimately we decided to sleep. This made for a hot evening run, but I got it done.
Thursday, we actually DID get up early before work to get our run in. I was almost turned off to the idea upon waking up and finding RAIN, but the hubs kept me to it. While it was unexpected and unwanted, it only ended up lasting a few minutes into the 3 mile run...so I stuck with it.

Saturday, I had to decide what I wanted to do for my long run. Dopey called for 3 miles and DDD called for 4. Ultimately, I went for the 4. I will probably stick with the longer mileages over the next 2 months as the plans overlap - luckily they're fairly similar. It was HOT though, basically 90. We ended up running around mid-day on our favorite trail, and we did not prep properly, so the heat definitely worse that it could've been due to our lack of liquids. Nothing like learning the hard way...lol Luckily, some water was waiting for us back in the car, and a ice cold Gatorade was waiting for me once we got back home.
All and all it, was a great 4th weekend of relaxing to cap off a great week of running. We went out Friday night and saw some lovely fireworks (I LOVE fireworks!) and then spent Saturday afternoon relaxing after our run and staying cool from the heat with Toby.
