I survived the run but it involved a lot of walking. It was high 70s to low 80s from 7:00-9:41:35 this morning. Chris was back after four weeks of injury. We ran slowly together to catch up on the weeks we've not seen each other. Gratefully, he walked whenever I walked. I attribute my day to all the yard work Friday and yesterday.
What is new for me is that my weight has dropped like a rock. I've beem flirting around 160 for two months now and as soon as I got home from vacation, the meals got smaller, the drinks stopped flowing, work kicked in and the heat boiled all the fluids into the atmosphere. I came in this morning from the run barely making it to 152.8 lbs. I lost 4.2 pounds on the morning run and that was after downign copious amounts of Zipfizz, Gatorade and water along the route.
I am heading for a nap now. I could use more shuteye too. I read that in Runners World. Yeah, I need more sleep.
