Whooweee it's been so dang hot lately. I could not force myself to run in 90 degree weather for the virtual 5K I signed up for, so I hit the dreadmill. Here's my recap!
The 5K was to celebrate Carrie's 40th birthday over at Family, Fitness, Food. There weren't really any rules- just have to include some type of hill into your 3.12 mile run.
I included 2 mins of an incline for my hill and thought I was going to barf. I managed to finish in 33:36. I tried to take a picture of my time and mileage, but I was running and it's hard to take a picture while running ya know!
I was doing a long run this day, so I totalled in at 4 miles in about 46 minutes. The heat zapped me and I pretty much pooped out the last mile. I literally felt like I couldn't take another step after the 4th mile. I am having problems staying hydrated while running because drinking liquids while exercising gives me a sideache. I know this lack of fluids is probably majorly contributing to my fatigue. Anyways, mamajo and I were overheated and disoriented so we did what every normal person would do- take dorky pictures of ourselves.
Happy Birthday Carrie and thanks for hosting this fun virtual 5K!!!
