Ahhhhhhhh….it’s another gorgeous day in SD. I am sad to be back at work, but super excited to get out and enjoy the summer-like weather at lunch. It’s going to hit 90 at the beach today (unheard of) which feels even hotter on the sand! It never gets that hot on the beach. Inland yes, the beach? NO WAY! It’s like summer in Florida but without the icky humidity! The heat will be here through tomorrow and then we head back into the high 60s! Now that’s more like it.
I have taken the past 2 days as complete rest days. It’s amazing what rest does for the bod! I am feeling really good and am ready to get back into the swing of things. I have plans to run with the Rock Runners again this weekend and I think they have 22 miles on the schedule.
So I have been wavering back and forth about the Maui Marathon. After this past weekend I realized what a total wuss I am in the heat. I am getting nervous about running in high humidity. I have read reviews from the past few years that go on and on about how humid it is. Eeeek! It starts at 5:30 am so that the weather is as cool as possible. We get some humidity in the late summer when storms come up from Mexico, but it’s nothing like Hawaii. Anyone run in high humidity? If you were not used to it, how did you prepare for it? I am starting to think that the half might be a better option…
