My run was a success! A small one at that but still a success. I met up with Megan around 7am and we proceeded to run about 2.5 miles around town and a local college campus. She had already been running for about 4-5 miles before meeting up with me!
I was drenched with sweat in a matter of minutes due to the heat and humidity. I felt ok with the flat roads and downhill sections but continuing to run after an uphill was such a challenge. Luckily, Megan was very patient with me and was cheering me on the whole time. I had to stop and walk a few times but only for less than a minute. It took about 30 minutes to do 2.5 miles so I averaged about a 11-12 minute mile. Not bad for my first run in a long time coupled with the heat. There’s definitely room for improvement!
I took a COLD shower when I got back then started on breakfast.
Stonyfield vanilla + strawberriess + coconut granola
1 dippy egg + Multigrain english muffin with peanut butter
This was the perfect post-run breakfast. Protein, carbs, healthy fats and fruit! I think my decision to forgo my 5:15 BodyFit class tonight is a wise one. It is way too HOT and my arms are a tad sore from BodyPump yesterday. They need some time to rest!
