Just damn unpleasant

This has been a week of analyzation. When is the best time to run? When will the humidity be lowest? Is the heat or the humidity worse to run in? Did we run in this last year? No matter how you cut it, running in this has been terrible and I couldn't get my miles in. When you are sucking in the air and it's going down like soup you know it's awful out there. I'm sure we have run in this during previous summers and can guarantee you we complained about it just as much and probably missed our miles due to it.

Tonight we headed out to see what we could accomplish. This was going to make or break our week and we were going into it with some hesitation. Let's see how far we get. Well, we got a whopping 1.6 miles before deciding to walk it back to the car. Yeah, what can I say, the weather sucked. On the walk back though the 3 of us were laughing, we laughed the whole way back to the car. There was no complaining about what we should have done, or what this meant to the training. It was just three runners who got beat and were accepting it for what it was. To any runner that accomplished their goals this week, congrats! To any runner who felt like us this week, at least it sucked for all of us!

I'm hoping next week will be better, and can tell you right now that if by a fluke of nature the weather is like this in NYC on 11/1, I'll be on the side lines cheering on the fools while I drink a beer with friends!

Days till NYC: 76
Miles trained today: 1.6
