Did you notice that everyone that made a post recently had a bad run this weekend? I don't think it's a coincidence either. We're not acclamated to the heat and humidity yet, and so we shouldn't be too hard on ourselves.
Ok, just to add to the whine...today sucked!! My plan was either a 12.2mi or 13.6mi, depending on how I felt.
The day was supposed to be in the high 60's, low 70's, overcast, slight breeze. Perfect weather for a nice run. I filled one water bottle & sliced up half an orange & half a banana.
At mile 7.5, my groin started to hurt again, but that got better by mile 8. The temperature & humidity went WAY up in the first 6 miles, which wasn't expected. I ran out of water at mile 7 (something that hasn't ever happened to me before). At mile 8, I was nauseated, feeling dehydrated, by mile 8.5 I tossed whatever water I had in my system, along with my breakfast, on the side of the road.
At this point, I'm still almost 4mi's from home, so I called a friend & had her save me at mile 9.2. Bad running day, all the way around!!
