Look: I woke up late and it still wasn't a bajillion degrees outside! If I were to normally wake up this late (well this was even after my run), it would be at least 90 with at least 70% humidity. Today it was only 80 after my run AND breakfast! This is awesome. Well except for the fact that if I wake up late, I always get side stitches. Like every single time. I have no clue why.
My four mile run got cut short after a very long, slow, painful mile (think snail speed). I will try to go back out this afternoon to finish my run, but I thought this weather was so worth sharing!
Update on my break: I am back. The last month has been the craziest month ever. I had a guest at my house for two weeks which was absolutely fantastic (playing tourist in your own town is great- you should try it, I learned so much about the place I have always lived), but it also took up so much of my time and then with school starting I have had no time! I really am going to try to post at least once every week. I think Saturdays will be my definite days so check out my blog early Saturday afternoons, and I should have a post!
Update on training: like I said, it has been crazy around here the last month. I have been running, but not as much as I should have been. Good thing my race isn't until December! I am so excited to be back training again! Oh serious running, how I have missed you!
Shoes: I ordered the Brooks Ghost 5s on clearance on the Brooks website. I love them. I took a leap of faith ordering a new pair of shoes online, but I have the Brooks Launch which I love, I was just looking for something with a little bit more support for longer runs. I have only run 4 miles in them so far (I just got them), but I love them! I will do a more formal review in a little bit after I have logged a few more miles in them.
