I’m a bit behind in my 100 miles a month goal, thanks to skipping my run on Sunday in a favor of a trip to the pediatrician’s office, followed by a few beers with Jamoosh. ;o) At the start of the week, I think I needed about 13 more miles. On Monday, I only had a couple of hours while the kids were in camp and I had a few errands to run, so I planned to hit the treadmill when Beer Geek got home. It’s just been too hot lately at 4:30pm to run outside.
Around 3:00, suddenly the sky got very dark and the clouds opened up. We got an inch of rain in about 15 minutes. The boys were freaking out because of the wind and the thunder and lightening, but we didn’t lose power or any tree branches and it ended fairly quickly. I hopped on the local station’s weather site and discovered the temperature had dropped 15 degrees. Woohoo! Time for an outside run.
Oh.my.goodness. I should have just gone for a swim. You could practically see the steam rising up from the hot cement. I was drenched almost instantly and by the time I got home, you could have wrung water out of my hair. My shirt (a white technical t) clung to me like I was participating in a wet t-shirt contest (the black running bra underneath and my decided lack of cleavage made it much more G rated than that however).
On the bright side, it was a fast four miles and I got it done, despite the humidity. The rest of the week should be great with highs in the 80s and lower humidity. I’m going to be loving that!
