Next Saturday, Aug. 8, I will run my FIRST 5K!!
It’s local and in memory of a friend. Perfect.
To prepare, I stopped running at night. Because no matter how many miles I’ve run, it’s still going to be a shock to my system to suddenly be pushing myself at 8 a.m. if I’m used to running at 9 p.m. or later. I would probably be tired and not perform well.
Yesterday I got out in the heat mid-afternoon and mostly walked. But I was glad to be out there– it’s so different than night running. Although there have been some hot ones, it’s usually cooled down and the humidity isn’t as bad. Mid-day is a totally different ballgame. I was really slogging along, I felt dehydrated.
I also seem to run better solo for now. Once my mileage is consistent and my confidence higher, I’d be open to running…
