Ship’s Log–May 27th


Today’s run was bad. It was supposed to be tomorrow’s run, but I decided to do it today, in the hot, humid, but sunny weather, rather than tomorrow, in the cool but wet weather. Running 8 miles, including 16 high intensity intervals, in this heat was horrible.

I decided not run without bringing water. I may be an idiot. I missed the target time on at least a third of the intervals, as I struggled to stay strong despite the fact that I was rapidly dehydrating. By the time I got home, I was in bad shape. My advice to you and my future self–don’t try to do more than 4 miles or so in this sort of weather without a hydration plan.
