Tuesday night's work out was brutal. Hot, Hot, Hot!! It was easily 95+ and humid as can be. If I didn't join this group, there is NO WAY I would have been out there. Overall, the run wasn't horrible. We were all hydrated and stuck together. We did 4 miles with one of the miles being a steady hill. That was mile 2 and it was killer. I'm just glad we got out there.
I've been wearing my compression socks on my runs this week - they are fun lime green! My legs have been a little sore, just kinda, so I figure I'd try that. They feel a bit better - maybe it's all in my head, but I'm okay with that.
We had friends over for a fun dinner/game night last night and it was a blast! We haven't done that in a long time and it was so much fun! After my husband made us some delicious fajitas, we played a new game, Anomia and an old fun one, Partini. I highly recommend them! They were so much fun!!
Anomia is a fun card game that's quick and easy. Not many rules to go over and everyone can play!
Partini is an old favorite that is similar to Cranium in that there are a variety of types of games to be played - sculpting with clay, acting out a scene, bouncing balls into cups, etc. It's laid back and simple and no real direction reading necessary (can you see how important that is to me?!).
With all that fun, I didn't get my 4 miler in yesterday :( So, even though we were up way past my bed time, I headed out at 7am for my run. It actually felt great! It was way nicer than I had anticipated, only 70 degrees, which is awesome considering we've had 4 consecutive 100+ days in Michigan.
As an update, I was SOOOO much better this week and didn't have ANY Pringles! I did slip up today and have a bag of SunChips, but I'm okay with that. Garden Salsa is so hard to resist!
I'm off to bed super early tonight since I'm incredibly exhausted from our busiest week at work and we moved our group run from 630am tomorrow up to 530am due to the extreme heat. 8 miles on the schedule and can't wait to put them behind me! Nighty night!
