NYC Training Week 9

For the third week in a row, my running has been abysmal. But given the week we had - 4 ER trips, 24 hours at Children's Hospital - I guess it's a miracle that I ran at all.

  • Monday - 3.5 with Elizabeth. Held 9 min. miles even though I was pushing the jogger.
  • Friday - 2 miles, solo. Miserable, awful. Walked the last quarter mile
  • Saturday - 3 miles at the Trail. Miserable, awful. Walked/ran the last mile.
The heat and humidity are giving me such problems that I'm thinking of joining a gym, just so I can run on a treadmill indoors once or twice a week. Running outside just isn't working for me, and I'm starting to feel the pressure of the looming race.

Reading about the week you've had, I think it's amazing that you ran at all! Hang in there. With everything.

I have grown to love the zen of the treadmill, especially in this nasty humidity :-) Plus, you can wear headphones, run alone, run at night, safely. Doesn't replace a trail run, but it's still a good option. (I think)

by the way, if all goes well with training and you do the race (how was that for not wanting to jinx you or add pressure?) I plan to go to cheer you on!
