Track Workout #2

Today I did my second track the heat. Blech. I don't remember it being so hard to run in the heat- or so miserable. I was a big sweaty mess the whole time, but this time I remembered to wear both my heart rate monitor and my iPod so I could keep track of where I was and stay motivated. It's amazing how a simple run in the HEAT makes your heart rate shoot right up to a chest-bursting 180 bpm. At least I didn't pass out or puke...

But, it wasn't as great as it could have been because something is wrong with my right arm. I think I've got a pinched nerve, so the arm feels all useless and tingly. I should prolly put some heat on it, but I'm lazy. I should also prolly stretch again...but see previous statement.

The problem with evening workouts is that I get home late and don't feel like cooking for myself, let alone the husband. Thankfully he likes quick (albeit gross) foods like sandwiches, hotdogs, and tv dinners. I'm boring and have been eating egg white omlettes for dinner just about every night for the past week with some sort of roasted veggie. Last week it was broccoli...every.single.night. But I like how I prepare it, so it's really not an issue. This week's repeat veggie has been some fabulous sugar snap peas from the Worthington Farmer's Market.

Speaking of peas, my plants looked kinda pale this evening. Either they need more water (they got some yesterday!), or I need to harvest what's there. It IS getting a little hot for peas. I'm just happy the correct thing grew...but more on garden fails another day- plus pics!

  1. I'm miserable just thinking about running outside. Regardless of the temperature.
