It's a Start

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!

  1. Welcome back to Texas running! I keep a Camelback with me at work and trying to get through two bottles. I've read that people tend to drink more water from Camelbacks because the bite straw is quicker then unscrewing lid on a regular water bottle.
