I missed a few days of running last week because of work and childcare issues, and then I picked today, our first humid day, to start back.  Ugh.  The humidity really got to me.  I didn't run the distance I had planned, and at first I felt bad.  But, I'm trying not to be too hard on myself, and I'll try again on Thursday.

For the first time, my bad leg numbed up and I had to stop.  Blisters too.

Time for new shoes.

BTW - Far Cry is awesome to listen to while running, same witrh Malnar and TMMB!!

[frustrated rant on]

Just got back from running 5/6 of the course for next week...part of it was blocked due to construction going on.  It's 88 and humid...and I think I'm going to die!  wacko.gif

If I can finish this race at ALL, I'll be doing good.

I started jogging / running when I was 18 or 19 years old and I am 45 now. Mainly because I was starting to be a lazy overweight git.  I always played football ( soccer ) since I was a kid so I was always quite fit. I have completed 7 or 8 Marathons ( just been listening to that !!!! ), including the London Marathon 3 times and god knows how many half Marathons. I never get a good time ( best  was the Sheffield Marathon 3 h 44m years ago ) but I enjoy my training and I can try and solve  problems I may have in my life because it is suprising where your mind goes when your on a long run. So anyone thinking of staring go ahead but take it easy and build up gradually, plenty of fluid and eat properly....God I sound like me mum!!!!

Okay...I'm off to change and get ready for the 5K.  Hopefully I'll be back in one piece.  laugh.gif
