Actual temperature = 99*
Heat index = >110*
antsy to get outside and move
105 minutes on the schedule = 20 minute short run just to burn off some energy, be smart, and stay safe
mile 1 = lots of sweat, but happy to be moving (9 minute mile)
mile 2 = one single rain cloud- summer downpour!
splashing through puddles, soaking wet, unconsciously increasing speed = joy and uncontrollable laughter = looking like a grinning crazy lady running
mile 2.25 = perfect rainbow
mile 2.5 = 20 minutes = I don't want to stop, rain ends
21 minutes = sun returns - puddles on blacktop = hot bath water splashing up and running down my legs.
2.64 miles = home, dripping with sweat and rain, soaked to the bone and so thankful for the perfect joy-filled run, even if not the long run on the schedule.
Just what I needed.
