I decided that since I "rested" Sunday after the relay, that was enough down time and I should get back on my DC Fit training schedule. Today was supposed to be a 45 minute easy pace jog. The heat index is down to 103 now, having peaked today somewhere near 110 (with actual temp tickling 100, but right now it's a balmy 92, with the humidity is down to 56%. w00t!!!!!!!11).
Unfortunately, I am still having problems pacing myself. I did just over 2 1/2 miles on the front half (23 min). Not quite "easy" when you're really shooting for a 9:30 min/mi race pace. D'oh.
So, yeah, running today was a bit of a challenge. Oh well. I talked to my new running buddy and we're doing two weekday runs this week, and then our Saturday long run (9 mi) as well. Something to look forward to!
Oh, and for Danielle, who asked me to figure out and let her know, the MC200 weekend weight loss was 7 lbs.
