Well the hat rained yet again this morning!!!
Gotta hate it when that happens, but it is what it is. 100% humidity, but no rain makes the run a slog, even when the temps are "only" 64*F.
The first couple of miles were pretty decent, even though Bennie had to plenty of stops to make this morning, you know one of those 9 stop mornings, that just take the wind out of your sails, especially when the going is more like swimming than running.
After the 8th stop, I just lost focus and kind of plodded along, until the end.
Not the greatest run ever, but I did get it done.
Then I thought about running this afternoon, but the leg was bothering a bit more than I like, so I decided instead to do:
5:00 minutes on the rowing machine - 250 meters
20:13 minutes on the elliptical - 2.0 miles
Not super crazy about either machine, but it they did use muscles differently than I am used to, especially the rowing machine - that good all over workout. The ellipitical was boring, but I found to 10* hill and 10 level to be the right combo for me.
What Bennie thought about running 4.0 miles in that stuff.
