Hey guys, been a very hectic work week for me. Client wanted to cut costs on 3rd change order to extend my team which meant we reduced the number of resources but it seems the customer has increased the amount of support they want, typical!
Since I ran Saturday and Sunday and am now running consistently for my 3+ miles I knew Monday should be a rest day...of course it was the least humid most beautiful day
Monday night my neighbor and our collective children went to the local pub for a fundraiser where our local funeral director and our pastor challenged each other for tips as guest bar tenders. Whoever had the least amount of tips had to shave their head. The funeral director had a nice full head of hair while Pastor Phil is thinning greatly, lol. Pastor won and at 8pm we all stepped outside into the alley to watch the shaving occur. They raised over 8k to go towards the church's youth mission trip. Gotta love small town living
Even though I was in bed normal time Monday night, I woke up Tuesday feeling like I had done an all nighter and as I looked out the window I saw that heavy layer of humidity that looks almost like fog. I said to myself, no way am I running in that and went back to bed. Of course I regretted it later when I saw that we were going to be in a heat wave the next 3 days!
Got out this morning at 7:30. It was 75 degrees with 75% humidity but lots of cloud cover. Didn't feel too bad and I got it done. I swear I sweat more than any runner ever!
Duck - you sound like my DH, he's in the same slump. I'm hoping that week at the beach next week helps him through it. Usually he feels like this in the winter but I think this year its due to the fact he hasn't been outside getting enough Vit D. Hope yours ends soon, I agree, take some time off and go on an adventure!
Missy - I get what you mean about P90x, that's how I felt about Insanity and T25. It serves a purpose but I got bored with cycling through the same workouts. I also can only tolerate the climate right now in the morning, so if I don't get a run in then, I'm not going to get it in period!
Katholeenie - take care of your back and can't wait to hear your news!
Stay cool everyone!
