7 ridiculously hot miles again today. It wasnโ€™t easy and I may have cursed a couple times ๐Ÿคช BUT it only makes us stronger ๐Ÿ‘Š
I know my training has been pretty boring lately. Workouts are few and far between and Iโ€™ve just been happy to keep a base, but thatโ€™s the phase Iโ€™m in at the moment. Just like my training and racing phase will come again soon ๐Ÿ˜˜ So, thanks for hanging with me ๐Ÿ˜‚ Even though almost every run looks exactly the same!
Iโ€™m happy with the phase Iโ€™m in though because when it feels like 97 on your run I have no problem slowing down and cutting a mile or two! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ”ฅ
Happy Wednesday! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Today Iโ€™m grateful I love running because if I didnโ€™t today I would have quit for good. ๐Ÿ˜‚
It was 85 when I started running and 95 by the time I got back in the car. After 2 miles I checked my HR and had to really slow it down. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
The good news - tomorrow is a new day! ๐Ÿ˜Š
7.05 miles for the day โœ…

SUMMER RUNNING! I got thrown into it head first last week and Iโ€™m starting to feel a little bit better. Iโ€™ve trained for several marathons through the summer and here are my biggest tips for survival!.
๐Ÿ”ฅ Hydrate! Iโ€™m aiming for 100 oz. of water per day. And not all just after your run. This morning I took in 24 oz. before I left to run. Water > coffee in the morning during the summer.
๐Ÿ”ฅ Itโ€™s okay if you need a break and run on the treadmill. If I had a really hard workout and the weather was really tough I have no problem taking into the treadmill for a day! Do what you need to do.
๐Ÿ”ฅ If you do have an outdoor workout make sure to adjust your paces if you need to based on temperature and dew point. Donโ€™t kill yourself! Over reaching and not adjusting can lead to burn out, exhaustion or injury real fast! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
๐Ÿ”ฅ Get out early! When possible get up and try to beat some of the heat. The humidity can be worse in the morning if you live somewhere humid like me but without the hot sun shining down on you from the start it can make a big difference! โ˜€๏ธ .

8.05 miles to start out the week! โœ…

Happy Fatherโ€™s Day to the best and fastest Daddy I know! E and I love you so much! ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿป

12 Miles โœ…
Wanted 14 but adjusted my plan due to the heat and humidity just wasnโ€™t worth it. Still a great run ๐Ÿ™Œ
I repeated โ€œjust relax and runโ€ about 100 times during the run and I guess it worked! ๐Ÿ˜
Now off to spend the our last day on the beach ๐Ÿ–

Rest days are better at the beach ๐Ÿ– Though my runnerโ€™s shorts tan isnโ€™t going anywhere anytime soon ๐Ÿ˜‚

Do you see that glistening skin? Thereโ€™s no oil folks thatโ€™s all sweat. Thatโ€™s what 85+ degrees and 90% humidity does ๐Ÿ˜‚
It was hot. I felt tired. 7 miles done โœ…
This wasnโ€™t a fast one but proud I stuck it out and didnโ€™t quit after 1.5 miles like I really wanted to ๐Ÿ˜†
Now off to Myrtle Beach for the weekend to be reunited with our baby! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’™

10 miles for Wednesday! ๐Ÿ™Œ
Got up a little later again this morning but my body finally decided it wanted to run around mile 4.
Got in 8 solo miles this morning and then followed up with 2 more this afternoon with the hubs! โค๏ธ
Run dates are few and far between these days so we are enjoying them while we can! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Today is the last day for Wes and I in Isle of the Palms! We head tomorrow to meet my in-laws and our sweet boy in Myrtle Beach for the rest of the week. ๐Ÿ–
Weโ€™ve had so much fun being together and reconnecting but we canโ€™t wait to see our little man!! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

8 more miles on these legs!. ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Yesterday afternoon I joined my hubby for his 3 mile double. He asked if I wanted to join him and since we rarely get the opportunity to run together I jumped at the chance! So in total I ran 11 miles Monday. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
Today thereโ€™s no doubling but still got in a strong 8 Miles to start out the day. We slept in until 7:30 (yes thatโ€™s sleeping in for us ๐Ÿ˜ด) so I prepared myself for the higher temps and humidity! Still averaged an 8:39 thanks to the flat roads on the Isle if Palms! ๐Ÿ™Œ
No workouts for me this week but instead Iโ€™m adding some extra miles to base build. Vacations for me are always about running whatever I feel like and feeling strong!๐Ÿ‘Ÿ 8.05 miles for Tuesday โœ…

What a fun and special morning! ๐Ÿ’—
A few days ago on our way down to SC I was watching Jess (aka @jessbug1122) insta stories and saw she was vacationing at the same resort we are staying at with her family this week! What are the odds?! ๐Ÿ™Œ
We had so much fun chatting for 5.5 miles that it just flew by! Always so fun meeting IG friends in real life! Canโ€™t wait to cheer you on in Chicago Jess! ๐ŸŽ‰
8.05 miles total โœ…

9 morning miles! ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ
The plan was to sleep in this morning but when your body is used to waking up at 6 am with a toddler every day it doesnโ€™t sleep in well ๐Ÿ˜
I went out with no mileage plans but after 3-4 Miles my body finally kicked in and I finished out until 9! Hot, humid, but also just really relaxing! โค๏ธ
Spending the day in Charleston with my love! ๐Ÿ’‘

Such a blessing to be able to share 14 miles with @theresa.welch this morning! Itโ€™s funny when you meet someone through Instagram you feel like you know them even though youโ€™ve never met ๐Ÿ˜† Weโ€™ve tried to get together several times now and finally it all came together!
14 miles that flew by thanks to her company and made the miles feel like we were just hanging out instead of doing our long run! ๐Ÿ’—โ˜บ๏ธ
Now hubs and I are off for 5 days of sun, sand, and quality time together! So hard leaving my little man but know he will have a blast with his grandparents! ๐Ÿ’™
