6:45 AM: Chalene’s Lean Extreme – COMPLETED
Boy, it’s another hot and YUCKY (wow, I haven’t used that word in ages. I feel like a 32-year old stuck in a 4-year old’s mind) day. I heard on the radio that it’ll be 95-degrees but feel like 105. Is that even possible?!? Oh, I cannot wait for Fall to get here. I was scheduled for a 40-minute run yesterday but only got 3.15-miles in. The heat was just unbearable; 90-degrees by the time I hit the pavement. Just the way your bottle of water freezes in the winter, my water (what was left of it) was pipin’ HOT by the end of my run.
The park that I run through right across my job. It’s very small, but it let’s me squeeze in less than a mile or so. Also, there’s a water fountain!
I sure hope that the weather cools down by Thursday at the very least. I really, really hate racing in the heat. On top of that, my left eye was giving me issues yesterday. I knew it was a bit irritated, but didn’t realize the seriousness of it until I took out my contacts. My entire eyeball was bloodshot red. I used some drops and while it alleviated some of the pain, it didn’t really clear it up until this morning. I’m giving my eyes a rest and wearing glasses for the next two days.
Let’s hope it’s 100% by Thursday night because I don’t run with glasses.
On a random note, I have to say that my MIL gave me the best (aside from my husband’s gift) mother’s day gift this year. If you have a baby/toddler, I highly recommend you own this in your home.
Oh Dirt Devil, how I love you so. The majority of dirt in this baby happens to be Lili’s crumbs. If we had a dog, he/she would be so happy (and we’d be mad from watery poop from a dog all over the house).
What do you use to clean up baby’s crumbs? Are there any tips you can give a gal?
How do you keep cool when you run in this heat? Do you run in just a sportsbra? (Or if you’re a guy, without a shirt?).
