Quick post today. I took all of your advice and now it's my goal to run in this heat as much as possible. I ran at 430 pm yesterday, it was about 95 degrees but with a steady breeze so it wasn't too bad. Plan was to run 4 mile tempo run really trying to focus on keeping a consistent speed. Ended up running 4.5 miles at an overall average pace of 9 min/mile. First three miles came in at 8:34, 8:23, & 8:12. Huge improvement from my last few runs. Last mile and a half was jogging/walking as a cool down. Overall great run, just need to keep running in this heat and drinking TONS of water.
Now come back tomorrow, I woke up early this morning and hit the trail before work and Oh my do I have some pics to share.
How much water is everyone drinking throughout the day???
I'm around 118-135 fl oz of water which is about 7-8 basic water bottles.
Hello, thank you for joining me along my journey of becoming a Runner! I've always been an active guy, played sports in high school and continued into adult recreation sports after high school. As I started my family and found a career, the activity level slowly decreased. Well my Fiance had enough of our lazy ways and started on the Weight Watchers program and completely overhauled our daily meals. Step 2 was getting more active, so we decided to JOG our annual Juvenile Diabetes charity walk and actually enjoyed the activity. The month following the charity walk, we signed up for our first official 5K and had an absolute blast. From that point forward I have officially been BIT by the running bug and this is my journey to becoming a RUNNER!
