Heat Wave

Yesterday, the temperature shot up to close to 100, which, according to Walter, our in-house meteorologist, was due to the fact that it is summer.  I re-asked the question: why had it been so nice the last couple of weeks then?  This was apparently due to a low pressure zone in North Carolina sucking cooler air down from the north.  Anyway, yesterday was my first 10 mile Wednesday run, the first of many, and it was brutally warm.  I still found, though, that the legs performed admirably in spite of the heat, and I got in the ten, perhaps a bit slower than if it had been twenty degrees cooler.  The usual Wednesday evening crowd for this group run was thinned considerably, I guess because it was so hot.  After finishing the run, and taking on considerable amounts of water, standing outside in the slight breeze felt nice and cool as the sweat evaporated.  I walked home feeling good that I didn’t skip the run because of the heat.  On a beer note, I treated myself to a Long Trail Unfiltered Belgian White, which is very refreshing and has a bit of a sour bite and looks cloudy in the glass because it is unfiltered.  Yeast is good for you.

    Wow, I’m really impressed you were able to get in your 10 miler. I took my run to the treadmill, which I normally hate, but I set it up to the pre-programmed hilly course (my attempt to simulate the Wednesday run), sprinted up the hills, and rested on the flats. Considering it was a treadmill workout, I have to say, it was a darn good workout!

    hey Frank you’re the man! Glad to see you logging the miles and putting your goals out there for all to see. That takes guts (and I suppose some yeast too). Keep at it. Great stories on the cruise. I’m looking forward to hearing about your next trip whenever that might be. More pictures!!!

  3. Michele, I’ve never been a treadmill fan, but I can see why you went that route. I had a bit of heat aclimation on my cruise 2 weeks ago, so maybe that was a help. Tony, you have some pictures on the way! Frank

    Great pics Frank. You looked like a kid jumping in that beautiful water. Everyone looked so relaxed too. I think you could creat a niche as the running guy who travels. I would give your cruise 4 sneakers rating.

    Frank,
    Glad to see you were able to get in some quality this week. Went to Wildwood for a concert Wed night, so I ran in the AM. Hope to see you on Sunday.
