Saturday morning I woke up bright and early to log my 6 mile week two half marathon long run. I can't sugar coat I how I feel about the weather ya'll. The weather was miserable. Stifling hot and humid at 5:30am is never a good sign, but I know I can not train solely for this half marathon on the treadmill. I have to get out and pound the pavement. Even though the heat and humidity are slaughtering my run times. I keep reminding myself when this dew point comes down, bay bay I am going to fly! I ran low and slow, and refused to even glance at my Garmin. I kept telling myself not to stress about pace and just enjoy the run. Overall, the run went just fine. It wasn't this girl is on fire fabulous and it wasn't this girl is insane why am I running again? miserable either. It was just, meh, a run! If I had sum it up in one word, it would be HOT. Don't get me wrong, I felt AWESOME after getting it done, as always! I haven't tapped into runners high in so long, I keep wondering when those feelings will begin to return. I'm sure I won't start tapping into that until the mileage starts creeping back up, and the temperature starts coming down, diva status hates to be hot.

It's time for weekly goals and I'm sad to report that my favorite class at my gym is no longer going to be offered. Seriously one sad panda over here. The trainer who is RIPPED certified, and my previous personal trainer, is moving on to other projects. I'm so sad to see her go. You will be very missed lady friend! I now have to find new ways to fill up my Monday work outs! Challenge! I tried getting back into Jillian's Killer Abs DVD but honestly, I'm a little burned out on Jillian. I need a new program to switch things up! Details pending, but it's looking like T25 from Beachbody!
