Today it got to 106 here in Auburn (according to the thermometer at a bank on the north end of town, that is). And that was at 4 p.m. I knew getting a run in was going to be a challenge, since I am not acclimated to heat at all. It has been warmer here at night than it gets in Fortuna on most summer days. Heck, I have been sweating like a damn pig just standing still here.

But I ventured out around 7:30 p.m. for a painful, sweaty, nasty run. It was likely in the 90s still, but at least it wasn't 106. Thank GOD!!! That, coupled with the hills here, made for a difficult time. But I did three miles and feel good about that.

We're supposed to get a break on Monday. I don't think I'm brave enough to do a long run this weekend.

Today's stats:
Distance: three miles
Time: 35:07 (SLOW!!!!!)
Pace: 11:45 minute/mile

I think heat and hills are the worst possible combination. Good job getting out there and doing it!

That is the heat I deal with every time. BUT it just makes you stronger for the next time. :>D
