Plan D happened though, if you notice in the comments, Plan E was nearly formed.
Here’s what pushed me over the edge:
Twitter (as paraphrased by moi)
- Awesome chica who totally cracks me up with her tweets: I just want to go home, not yoga but I should go to yoga. I’ll feel better.
- Me: OMG you should totally go! It’ll be good for you and you’ll be so proud of yourself for going and doing it!
- Me: Huh. I guess I should take my own advice.
- ACWTCMUWHT: Thanks and yup.
So I ran. With a heat index of 103 (in which NOAA advises against exercising). I took it purposefully slow (12:00) and it wasn’t that bad! Week 8 is three 28 minute runs. It was far better than my last run (super hot) and I didn’t really notice it was 3 minutes longer than my past four runs. I even had enough energy to finish with a sprinted 9:00.
It was still quite hot out so Moey was left behind this run. He joined me for my cool-down walk and still had energy to pose for a picture. Good puppy. :)
Check out my sweet Bondi/Sweaty Band. Oh wait, it’s just one of those elastic headbands popular a couple years ago. Hmm… I sure wish I had a running band.
If you’re wishing for a band like me, check out Running Diva’s Sweaty Band giveaway. They have so many different patterns! Her contest ends on Saturday.
