Suckin' Air

Some days my runs really suck.  You ever have those?  Like this morning, I ran the same stretch of road I've been running all week.  Yet I was slower and having a much harder time.  I think it had to do with the humidity.  The temp was in the high 80s, which is what it usually is when I run in the evenings, so that shouldn't have mattered.  But the humidity killed me.  The air feels so thick.  My best guess is I have to work harder cause of  it thus my run sucks!  Not a good way to start off the day.

Then I look at the upside, I did get my butt out of bed and run.  That's a gold star for me.  No matter how bad the run was, I was out doing it.  And I enjoyed all the cattle giving me crazy stares and the butterflies fluttering around me.  Can't beat that.

Run time: 25 mins


  1. It has been hotter than hades here also! Which makes it even harder is when the humidity is up! I think you always have days that are harder than others, the hubbies uncle says that the days you don't want to are the days that you have too! If that makes any since!

  2. I may sound nutty, but I'd rather run when it's hot like it has been lately than have to bundle up in 6 layers to run. I loathe cold weather running---give me hot weather any day of the week!
