Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

Looks like I'll be running in 85 degree weather this evening. Sure hope there's at least a little breeze.
This morning as I was taking advantage of my new work schedule by sleeping in, I suddenly thought of how if I didn't get out of bed and get out the door to run I'd be forcing a run in the high temps tonight, or on the treadmill again...so I got up and ran when it was still under 70! (my husband was home sick today so I was able to run outside while he was home with our youngest)
I guess the twins would think you were insane if you packed them into one of those double running strollers at 6 or 7 a.m. so you could get a nice long run in!
Modified to add the thought of pushing over 100lbs up the hills where I run isn't very motivating
Well it was hot as Hades and I managed to survive. Not only did I manage to survive but I ended up doing a tempo run then a mile cooldown. I think this may be a potential problem pattern for the times I run later in the day.
Very cool! Did you wear your camelback?
Did you get chills at all?
I thought of you when I looked out my office window and saw a person off in the distance running - it was about 90 degrees then!!
