Heat, Humidity, GO AWAY! it bed time yet?  I have been getting up at the crack of dawn to get my runs in.  For those who haven't heard, Philly is having a heat wave.  It was over a 100 yesterday and they are calling for 100 today.  Given my commitment to my 1/2 marathon training program, the only way to beat the heat is to get out there early. 

This morning my alarm went off at 4:41.  We went out for a 5.5 mile run.  When we came home, there was not a dry spot anywhere on me.  I took a COLD shower and was still sweating.

Tomorrow is a cross train day and Friday is a day of rest.  The day of rest sounds so wonderful right now!  My legs are heavy from the run and I'm tired from getting up so darn early.  Lots of coffee to make it through today.

Hahaha I love how you set it for 4:41! The things we do to run...but it is so worth it isn't it? I cannot deal with the treadmill. It is so not the same to me!

Good luck! This heat has been tough here also! Just take it easy training, this is unhealthy air quality in this heat! I wish you well!
