This morning I headed out the door a little after 8:00am. It was getting pretty warm by then, but running at 8 allowed me to sleep in a bit. Thankfully there was some good cloud cover, but it was also crazy HUMID outside. I ran my new neighborhood route, stopped and walked halfway in and had to stop one other time at the end. I think I was a little dehydrated, and I'll admit that I haven't been drinking as much water as I should be. In fact after church today we stopped at HEB, and I stocked up on bottled water because I think it will help me drink more often. All in all, I got out there and did it in 34 minutes. Not too shabby for being out of shape and running in the heat.
My lower back has been hurting a bit since the run this morning, and I've already been using the foam roller this afternoon to try and alleviate any stress. Here's to a week of consistent running!
