Sweat...



Today, you can be sure I was sweating....

I worked all weekend, and did not get a single workout in. By the time I got home from work, It was 90+ degrees, humid, and gross out. Sunday I managed an hour relaxing by the pool, but no lap swimming in my mom's tiny above ground.

So today, I set out to get my Sunday long run in of 7 miles. I knew it would be hot, so I opted for Longmeadow, which is a little more shady than my neck of the woods. I packed up my new toy (review to come soon)....


I headed out. Sweat poured off of me. I seriously at times thought I should turn back, but knew I had to get the miles in. So I plugged along. I walked when my heart rate was out of control, and wiped sweat from my face that my tough chik visor couldn't handle. Back at the car, I checked my weather app (with the air conditioner on full blast), and it was 86, feels like 88, yuck!

I am disappointed that I joined Amanda @ Run to the Finish's month of July Ab challenge, but haven't gotten to it yet. Tomorrow for sure!

How are you handling the heat?
Ever try a Hydrapak?
Want to join me in the ab challenge?

I have a different brand, but I started using it recently on long runs and love it, although it does get sweaty under it. Great job with your run with it being so HOT!

I have had a couple of really bad runs recently because of the heat. I usually run at Ashley Reservoir and it is only partially shaded. I ended up doing my long run, 9 miles, at the gym last week because of a sudden downpour. When I left the gym the sun was out and humidity ridiculous. As much as I hate running that long on the treadmill I was kind of glad I didn't wait for the rain to stop before running outside.

I have a Camelbak but I've never tried the Hydrapak. I love it for long runs.
