Runchin’ It Up!

I’m now in the middle of week #9 half marathon training. It’s been a pretty good week. I managed one morning run {5k} and has an awesome treadmill runs last night {8k}. I wasn’t diggin’ running on THE BEAST right tonight so I figured I’d runch since my work schedule didn’t have me on the road.

Today, I got out for a 5k runch on the trail.Β Β It’s was a hot one but I sun screened up and slowed my pace down. To be honest, I don’t know if I could have run too much faster as it was bloody hot outside!

I ran on the trail and thought about going out to the main road to run some hills but that idea when down the drain fast. Again, way too hot out.

Afterwards, I cooled off in my office with a frozen drink box, drank some Nuun {FINALLY found a flavour I like!} and got back to work. It was after all, a “runch” break.

I also have some excited news to share with you but it’s going to have to wait until tomorrow πŸ˜‰ Stay tuned for the update!

How many bottles of sunscreen have you gone through this summer?

Push the pace in the heat or not?

  1. Great job on that steamy run!!! Frozen juice box = Mind.Blown. My favorite Nuun flavor was discontinued! It was a Lemon Tea flavor. I was able to get my hands on a TON of it through a site called Bike Nashbar, and currently have something crazy like 32 tubes of it. Ha! Hopefully I’ll be sick of it by the time I finish those and be able to like another flavor!
