Training: Humidity and Heat=Short and Sweet

If I rhyme in the title, I get bonus internet kewl (not cool) points. 

To be point blank the heat and humidity cock blocked any sort of speed workout I had planned this week and I’m not thrilled about it.  Of course, I would love to feel some sort of speedyness but as is not the case.  Oh well, all miles are better then injured miles and I’m not here to complain.

Dad and I last weekend.

So with that, 84 miles of easy.  That seems like a lot (which it is, but my body feels fine because I haven’t done any speed sessions).   I’ll take each and every one of these miles versus being injured.  Some weeks are better then others and I had an extremely productive training week two weeks ago which led to my PR so this one can be chalked up to mostly recovery and mostly heat sucks.

This is the part of the post where I tell you that your training is based on consistency.  No one workout or week is going to make or break you (unless you get injured).  An easier week is never going to ruin any race. 


Next week I am going on travel to New York City and doing an open water swim with my relatives and then driving back home and doing another open water swim the following day.  I don’t make these things up.  Then that puts an official wrap on my summer swimming.  I may get in the pool, I may not…who knows…not me.

As far as running, I like to travel and find places with hills.  Since I’m currently training in a heat box with close to one hill in my entire area. When I find places with rolling hills, it excites me.  Maybe I’ll even try and get a speed workout in next week granted the weather is up for it.  🙂

Well looks like this post is short and sweet like my attention span, but who likes long wordy training posts anyways.

Questions for you: 

How was your work week?

What do you do when the weather isn’t cooperating for workouts?
