I went back to bed and got up later, had coffee, and waffles with maple almond butter (yummmm), and headed out the door while there was a break in the rain.
The temperature at the park wasn't too hot but it was insanely humid! I took my time and started trudging forward. Luckily, I filled up my water bottle with some delicious, fizzy Nuun to keep me hydrated with electrolytes.
I started out very sore because I had done speed work a couple days ago and ran yesterday as well. I probably should've taken a rest break! A couple miles in, I loosened up a bit. I finally finished my 12 miles and I was absolutely drenched! I was just happy to be done and I felt decent.
It wasn't my fastest time but I can tell you one thing... I worked hard!!
Did you guys do a long run this weekend?
