I opted for the treadmill today to 1) give my body a break and 2) to see if I could do some sort of progression run. I succeeded in the first and failed in the later.
When I started it felt like I had not run in months and when that feeling finally abated some I felt pretty tired. Oh well. Another steady state run it is. This needs to change soon or I will be mired in this one speed.
Today was a total sweat fest! It was humid out and the gym felt no different. Plus it was warm. Half way in this guy two treadmills down from me got off so I jumped off too and turned the fan he had been using on myself. It seemed to help at the time but after finishing water was literally pouring off me for like 20 minutes. I also practically drained one entire large bottle of water during my run! Sheesh.
At lunch and after work I did not feel like doing anything else so didn't fight it.
Walking home I went up and over the ridge - I'm still not tired of those stairs!
