are the words to describe today. Got to the gym at lunch time and had a much better workout then yesterday. It still wasn't the best but I will continue to push on. My nutrition has been on track all week and I'm really starting to love the foods I'm eating. I look forward to my egg whites, whole wheat wrap, and grapefruit every morning!
Tonight I had fun playing with Gracie on her playset and throwing the ball around. Around 8:30 I took off on my run and only one word can describe it...HUMID! I was drenched at the half mile mark and my legs started out feeling really heavy. At mile one they really started to loosen up and I felt much better, just hot! I took the same route I did last night and when I started up our street my wife and daughter were supposed to be there waiting for me to come in and cheer me on. Gracie wanted to cheer me on as I finished my run.
Trouble is, while I was out running our neighbors invited Ashli and Gracie over for a swim. So, when I rounded the corner and nobody was in the driveway I looked over at our neighbor's house and there they were basking in the glorious pool water, that was just not right!:) So I joined them:) and we had a good time for about 45 minutes or so just swimming and playing around. Gracie had a blast and did real well in the pool. She seemed very comfortable in the water.
Run: 3 miles
What's interesting about tonight's run is my time. I felt like I was running about the same pace as last night but came in almost two minutes faster. I think because of the heat I just wanted to get it over with faster!:) Tomorrow brings a 3 mile tempo run. I also have a strength training session scheduled but I have classes to teach tomorrow so I will move that workout to Friday. Hope everyone is doing well! Make it a great Thursday! - Jason
