Every Day Gets a Little Better
Ran today on the treadmill at the gym. Wow! Indoors, air conditioning, dry air, no sun...sweet! I ran almost 3 minutes PER MILE faster with about the same heart rate as outside in the heat. Felt great to run more quickly and recover immediately. Guess I should take a break from the heat once a week to remind myself how fast I can be...or at least break the spell this darn heat wave has cast on me. It's easy to get discouraged. Today I feel good. Tomorrow I'm due for another long run in the heat. In the middle of that run, I need to remember how I feel today.
