Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot

It's hot. And my fingers are swollen like little sausages. Side effect of running in the heat. Tuesday it was in the 50's and raining and today 80 degrees by 7 a.m. Just once I would like to ease into this weather not just one day - Hello! Anyways I had intentions to go on a nice 8 mile run before heading out to the suburbs to go meet with one of my local sites. It was going to act as my long run this week as we are going to central IL tonight because my first bridal shower is tomorrow. It is difficult to find time and a place to run there. So I thought I would be good get it done in the morning before it got too humid and gross. Boy was I wrong. I hadn't even started running yet and I was already sweating. So my 8 mile turned into a slow 5.5 mile run. I need to ease into this heat...On the run I realized this is my first hot run since the infamous marathon last year. After that race I took 2 weeks to ensure I was healed (rhabdomylosis = doctor's worried this girl was going to have a heart attack at age 28. The questionable EKG's and high CK levels didn't ease their concern much either) and recover from my general disdain of running. By the time I returned no more warm weather. I have to say it makes me nervous to run in this weather this year. I trained for a marathon in this heat last year with few issues but it all just seems so different now. I know it is all mental and I'll get a few more warm weather runs under my belt and gain some confidence but right now I'm hesitant. At least it has me focusing more on my body and running itself versus trying to be tough girl. Maybe I should sign up for that August half mary just to prove last year was a fluke and I'm not that girl that passes out in warm races ;)

I agree with Marcy, it was a total fluke. It's smart of you to ease into it though and make sure you aren't over doing it.

I can see why you may be a little hesitant. Just take your time building up mileage and listen to your body. If you need to stop or slow down, stop or slow down.

Have lots of fun this weekend. Bridal showers are so much fun, especially when it's for you!

Oh...rhado and high CK levels are no joke, Jamie! Still, having said that, I think you just need some time to acclimate to the heat. You can definitely due a half-mary even in August!

Ha! Be careful. It's a small piece of hell here and morning runs are humid. Be careful out there!!
