Total miles: 31.1
Monday: 10 miles, 8:51 pace
Tuesday: 9 miles total with 5x1000. I still managed a 4:04 on my last repeat! Nate, Craig, Ryan and I ventured out early to beat the heat - and so we could finish before everyone had to get to work.
It always amazes me that I'm able to recruit people do do workouts with me - much less three others! It makes visiting the track so much more pleasant! Thank you, faithful training partners, for tagging along!!
Wednesday & Thursday: Two days off. Dew points between 74-76 both days. I just don't think that's safe to run in while pregnant. Plus, it's just miserably warm & wet. Yuck.
I was also surprised to see that I was able to clip along at 8 minute pace for the run together. I was wiped out that evening, but still!
Saturday: 6 miles. My legs were so tired!
We headed up to St. Paul to look at appliances after our run, then walked over to the MN Irish Festival. They were within a quarter mile of each other! Some fun pictures, just because:
|Rocking our green for the Irish Festival. Nate technically isn't Irish, but he showcased his support of us Irish(wo)men anyway :)|
|Irish Greyhounds = Big doggies|
They weigh 240 pounds!

She needs some practice
Didn't wake up in time to get a run in before a baptism and decided later in the day that I'd rather continue packing away some of our clutter, cooking up a storm (we canned a HUGE batch of salsa and made a big pot of vegetable soup to try to use up some of our abundant vegetable supply!), and cleaning in general.
It was a good choice, it just didn't do anything for my weekly mileage :). That doesn't matter right now, anyway, I kept telling myself. Because it doesn't!

10 weeks to go! In one way, I wish I could fast-forward time. In another, there is a lot to do in those 70 days, including listing our house and starting to build another :)
How have you dealt with the heat and humidity this summer? Have you resorted to indoor training? Running early? Late?
I'm genuinely interested to know how others have been coping!
