Remind me again why I decided to start running during the hottest summer we’ve had in 10,000* years?? 84 degrees at 6am is not ok.
It’s a good thing I bit the bullet and re-upped my gym membership. While the treadmill isn’t the same as running outside, at least I got my ass out of bed and moving.
I’ve been repeating week 3 because I wasn’t quite comfortable enough with it yet to move on. After a 5 minute warm up walk you do 90 seconds running, 90 seconds walking, 3 minutes running, 3 minutes walking - and repeat once followed by a 5 minute cool down walk. I did the cycle 3 times instead of 2 and I felt great.
What did not feel great were the 9 bobby pins it took to keep my stupid not long enough hair out of my face. 9! They mostly stayed in place which was nice. I think putting them in at 6am when I was still mostly asleep really hindered their efficiency.
*not a real statistic
