As mentioned the other day, the weather has begun to heat up in the mid-south already. The runs are hotter, biking is harder, and there’s just a general sense of always being tired.
I missed my Wednesday morning run. I spent Tuesday night in the ER getting my chest checked out. While everything was ok, I was there so long and hadn’t eaten, I decided to sleep in and rest. Got my miles in Thursday and had a 12 mile run on Saturday, the last long run before Louisville. It was hot and my pace suffered.
I also managed the longest bike ride I’ve ever done, a whopping 14+ miles. At 11MPH. Still, it’s a start.
This week is a normal week, with a shorter Saturday run (8 miles or so) leading into taper for the Kentucky Derby half marathon on 4/29.
