We have finally reach the point in the Texas weather where the heat is really starting to pick up and be consistent. This the first summer where we will both be running through the heat, which is a weird mix of excitment and “Oh, God, are we going to die?”
Since the half we ran in May neither one of us has logged many miles running. Sorry just being honest! Like we have said many times we both stay very busy and for Teal this time of year means her school year with the students she teaches is coming to a close as well as her school year where she is a student. For Beth it has just been a busy season in her full time job with a handful of jobs in her part time job that have also kept her busy.
Now just because we both haven’t logged a bunch of miles running in no way means we aren’t still working out. You can still find Teal diligently working out with her trainer, Will, two times a week and Beth with her trainer, Johnny. And you can always find Teal either running stairs at a local high school or if they’ve locked her out at her gym. Beth you can find sweating her butt off while holding warrior one in the yoga studio.
And then there was Memorial Day Weekend where we had lots of days to put in some running miles, ya, that didn’t really happen either. We both, along with our significant others spent Friday night at the Rangers game. Teal woke up bright and early Saturday morning for a 14 hour trip to Vegas to see a friend get married, and Beth ended up glued to her couch and/or bed sick, with what exactly? Don’t know but there was a sore throat involved.
Being that today is National Running Day – there couldn’t be a better day for us to jump back in and get some miles under our belt! How many miles will you be running today? And those of you out there running in heat – what tips do you have for us for running in the heat?
