Really, who is not enjoying this weather?!
|My Princess from Saturday|
Since I ran out of my yogurt and banana for breakfast this morning, I went with a Click Espresso Protein drink and a bagel. Probably not the healthiest but it was pretty darn tasty. And I didn't have to drink any coffee since my protein shake had 2 shots of espresso in it!
Is anyone else nervous about running in the upcoming heat? It is supposed to be in the 80's today and a high of 88 tomorrow. I'm hopefully going on a run after work and I am pretty positive I do not know how to dress for this. I have yoga shorts and a loose fitting t-shirt, but nothing fancy or moisture wicking like I should probably have. (Shopping trip??)
I also forgot socks. So I guess that will be on my list of things to get on my lunch break today...I'm not trying to stink up my running shoes more than they inevitability will already.
I did a work out last night, just a mixture of squats/crunches/jumping jacks/weights/planks/etc. I did this for about 30 minutes. Also, I walked to and from work from where I dropped my car off for a state inspection. so that was a little over a mile I walked.
I was bad when I first got home...Willow and I went and played with the neighbors and Amanda and I had some Red Moscato. That stuff is soo good. Seriously going to have to start working out in the morning to avoid the heat and so I can have a glass of wine when I get home some times. ;)

What is your must have item for running in the heat? Reading up on articles I have these tips to share:
|Found at TheBerry.com|
- Always stay hydrated. (Not just water, but electrolytes as well!)
- Sunglasses are great to keep the sun out of your face, which can be a big annoyance.
- Its definitely important to warm up and cool down properly
- Dress as if it were 20 degrees warmer. So, If its 80 degrees out, dress as if it were 100 degrees out. I know, you are thinking WTF?? but seriously, its a nice rule of thumb to go by, and you will be glad you did.
