Training Log - Thursday, July 29, 2010 (Part 1)
6AM and Richard is knocking on my door. It's time to get out for a run again. We have all been slacking a little the last couple of days and Richard was itching to run even more than me. The humidity has been ridiculous. With temps in the low 70s, the humidity seems to hover near 100% all through this summer. I just can't get used to it. However, having someone run with you makes the suffering so much more bearable. Richard had to try out his new ankle brace as prescribed by his doctor to nurse his torn ligament injury. The doc suggested to keep running until it hurts too bad, as the injury can't get any worse. That's sound running advice in my book;-) Anyway, Richard and I opten for one long UAH loop totalling about 5 easy miles. Thankfully, his ankle held up, but the humidity was kicking both of our butts. Anyway, maintenance is the name of the game this summer. If I can just keep running through the summer without any major slumps, I am looking forward to a fast fall season, personally at least.
