Yesterday was day 2 of Half Marathon training. The training plan called for a 3 mile run with the training group. Now, we all know how I love schedules (I’m type A to a fault) and how I love group runs! But, what I don’t love is insane, crazy, and icky heat! That’s exactly what I got though!
It was 107 F degrees outside when our run started. Yes, 107F! Call us crazy, but there were no less than 50 people out there fighting the heat and getting our 3.37 miles done. We all had bottles of water and then there was more water and Gatorade set up at the half way point, plus ice cold cloths for us to use. Those cloths were almost dry by the time we were finished, but they started out cold and wet!
Not to worry though, we all went extremely slow and drank a ton of fluids. I had started drinking tons of water yesterday morning in preparation for the heat. The last thing I wanted to do was dehydrate. And, besides just being sweaty and hot – I felt fine. Crazy, I know.
BTW, I don’t recommend doing this – so don’t go doing it just because I did!
What’s the hottest ya’ll have ran in?
