These days, with the heat and humidity, I’ve been running on the treadmill a lot. With perfectly controlled temperature, perfectly flat surface and perfect traction, running on the treadmill is so much easier than running outside. I need to get out and run more!
I ran by the canal at Arcadia Park today in the soft dirt with 80+ degree heat. Although the course is flat, it made for tough conditions and my heartrate was revving in the 150s for most of the run!
This picture is a selfie taken after the run. From left to right are Kristi, me and Katie. I ran 8 miles in 1:10 for an 8:48 pace; pretty slow!!
