Running through another hot summer

And so I continue running…

It’s been a great week. In addition to a couple of runs, I got to go swimming at a friend’s house with her daughters. Her kids are young, and I’m definitely not swimming laps, but it’s still a fantastic workout and lots of fun. (No photos of that, I’m afraid. I haven’t exactly rushed to get out my camera when I’m in the pool, for reasons that I hope are obvious…)

I dug out a couple of resistance bands this week, and I’m now committing to do a (short) upper body workout after I run. It’s not much, but I’ve been thinking for a long time that I need to tone my upper body.  I can definitely feel the effects – I’ve had lots of soreness in my upper (and lower!) body as a result.

The weather prediction for tomorrow (Saturday) and next week is HOT – mid-90s (Fahrenheit) and humid. I’m not yet sure how that will affect my running. I know I want to go on a 6-mile run tomorrow, but if it’s 95 and humid, it may not be a wise choice. We shall see…
