Well folks it’s about that time again. It’s time for me to complain about the heat. Holy hot long run Batman! Saturday’s long run was a scorcher.

P-Funk and I wound up in our usual cadence in the back of the group and found ourselves oddly quiet. There was an occasional, “I’m dying” or a “Can we slow down a hair?” but other than that it was like a library. A library with sweating and panting. I’m pretty sure it was in the 90’s and even though we started our 10 miler at 6:30 AM, the humidity was brutal. I’d say that on a humidity scale of 1 to 10 it was a 32.

Oh how I’ve forgotten about marathon training in the summer. While I’m not in full marathon mode, I am getting close. I got my training plan from Coach EK and will go into more details as I get closer. Be on the look out for more posts with my whining about the heat. Sweaty shoes and socks here I come!

On the triathlon side of things I am making it a point to ride my bike at the very least, two times a week. I am having a difficult time getting in the pool, the bike, and the run. I think the pool is an issue because I have to pay every time I want to use the lap one. I could get a temporary membership somewhere but it’s so expensive for one person. Any suggestions?
