The Fairest Week In Review: 7/22

JENN: So how was your training this week?

MOON: Not so good this week. I've had a stomach bug most of the week. :(

JENN: Oh no! Well, that's definitely a good reason not to run.

MOON: I'm sure yours was better!

JENN: Mine was pretty good. I pulled out an okay 15 miler on the treadmill on Monday and then managed two outdoor runs. I found a new portion of my regular trail, which was nice.

It's been humid though, even in the morning. After one run I was desperate to break open a bottle of water and the cap WOULD NOT budge so I ended up stabbing a hole in the top and sucking it out that way.

Hydration desperation.

MOON: Have you had any luck finding shade?

JENN: I've been sucking it up and running between 6:30 and 8AM. It runs completely counter to my natural inclination toward sleeping in but it's the best way to avoid the heat.

MOON: Yeah, I've been having some problems with heat. Mostly the sun.

JENN: It's been reasonably overcast the past couple days. Unfortunately all that cloud cover makes for some impending rain makes for some humidity like woah.

MOON: Plans for this week?

JENN: More outdoor running. I really need to make progress on this. Someone please tell me the Marine Corps Marathon course is flatter than my neighborhood...


MOON: Hmm, probably do some outdoor running! No big plans for this week. Maybe take the BF out with me.

JENN: Ooh, if you run anywhere fun you should definitely do a guest post. Or make him do it!

MOON: We're still looking for a good half to do together.

JENN: As well you should. You should also read these posts from the roundup:

  1. I'm just so proud of your outdoor running! YOU'RE GOING TO BE AMAZING! Maybe my sign for the race should be: JENN'S HERE TO DEFEAT THE HUNS!
