Today's half-hour run went fairly well, considering the high heat. I managed to crank out a 10:40:53 pace, (i.e., 2.96 mi in 31:37), which, while not being tremendously fast, was still an improvement in pace as compared to other previous "high-heat" runs. So, it looks like I'm getting used to running in this stuff. Finally!
I drank 1.5 10-oz bottles of water total during today's run, but didn't feel the need to start drinking regularly until I was closing in on the second lap. (I usually drink water throughout the entire run, but thought I'd try sipping more conservatively this time, since on previous occasions I've gotten cramps or felt uncomfortably waterlogged after drinking too much in the beginning.)
While it took me a while to warm up during the first lap, I felt fairly energetic for the remaining laps. I actually enjoyed feeling the warm sun for about 2-3 laps, although by the final lap, I felt like I was beginning to melt. ;-)
Not much else to report about today's run. Will definitely be repeating Week 3 of the Hundred Pushups Challenge (HPTP) tonight, starting tonight with Day 1's workout. So stay tuned for that brief report.
Signing off for now,
