Desperate run

I've been feeling so crummy since I cut back my runs/workouts to just 2-3 times a week, so I decided, come hell or high water, I HAD to go for a run this morning. I had 1 hour between dropping my son off on his last (sniff) day of preschool and getting back for his party. Unfortunately, the sun was up and it felt like I was running on it!

I literally ran from shade to shade, zig zagging down the street and then finally settled on running along the main traffic vein because the cars zooming by created a breeze. That's desperate. After an ice-cold shower and lots of water, I feel great! I'm sick.

Here are some crazy statistics from my run this morning:
Miami weather: 95 degrees F
Humidity: 68%
Run time: 55 minutes
Body Temperature POST-run: 101 Degrees F
Water weight lost: 2.5 lbs

Humidity. Ick. Sweat feels like syrup.

Don't you just love running in Florida? It amazes me how much water weight we lose in just one run. I'm proud of you for fitting in a run *before* a party.
