We started the holiday off with a Braves game. We usually have a nice little tailgate set up, but since it was just the two of us we grabbed Subway instead. It's a good thing we did because about 10 minutes after we got to the stadium, the bottom dropped out of the sky and it POURED rain for about 45 minutes. We ended up tailgating in the car.
Wednesday I got up and met Sharon to run our virtual 5K for the Wounded Warrior Project. I was having a great run until the Nike+ app screwed up with the GPS. This is why I need a GPS watch ;) After we ran we went to this awesome little diner called BBs Bagels and grabbed a quick breakfast. They are THE BEST bagels ever!
Saturday we went out on Lake Lanier with some friends for the day. We parked the boat and chatted, had drinks, dipped in the lake, and some even tried wakeboarding. I'll give it a shot next time we got out.
Yesterday is where the title of my blog comes into play. I set my alarm for 6:30 to get up and go run, but I hit snooze for an hour and ended up not getting started until closer to 8. It was so incredibly hot! The sun was up above the trees and beating down on me on parts of the trail that it normally wouldn't, and I ended up doing a lot more walking than I would have liked. I did a 5.5 mile run, and it's my last long run before my 10K on Sunday. Eek! I hope I do better in the race than I did yesterday. The weather is supposed to be cooler and I will welcome it with open arms for the race. I have two 30 minute runs scheduled for this week, and with working my flex hours until 6:30, hopefully the air will cool down a bit.
Congratulations to everyone that ran the Peachtree Road Race on the 4th of July! I hope everyone has a great week. Stay hydrated!!
Until next time,
