Yah, so the day I decide I'm going to try a new route, w/ a hill & run @ least 5 miles....its' 80 degrees BEFORE 9am????
I ran a mile, realized it was WAY too hot to do this & be healthy. lol I alternated walking & running. I ran/jogged up the hill....all the way to one of our favorite parks, near DH job actually. Got some water from the drinking fountain...noticed my hands were swelling, not a good sign.
A sign of dehydration. :( (or adequate hydration w/ a lack of sodium)
I ran down the hill & a bit further & then called my neighbor to come & get me. I did not have time to walk all the way back.....I kept walking until we met. lol By that time it was 86 degrees!
Early evening looks like a better time to go if this keeps up. Whew!
I AM motivated though....Runner's World Magazine has that affect. lol Plus @ the gym the other day, on the treadmill...5mph & 5.5 mph felt SO slow to me! I was excited. I was running 6-6.5 mph @ a good pace & bit of challenge & even did 7mph for a while. It's exciting to feel the differences.
