Other than the yoga on Sunday, I got all of the workouts in.  I even ran on July 4th before heading out to a BBQ and fireworks! Tuesday’s run was on the treadmill because it was raining but Thursday and Saturday were outside on the nearby high school track.  You know what isn’t a good idea?  Running in the heat of the day when it is super humid out.  You come back looking like this:

Oddly, only my face got really red.  The rest of my body had a normal amount of workout flush to it.  Not to worry, I drank a bunch of water when I got back and took a cold shower to cool off.

For both cross training sessions this week, Zac and I went on walks.  The Wednesday walking was to and from the movie theater which is a little over half a mile from our apartment.  The walk on Friday was 2.5 miles on the trail and through the neighborhood, quite a bit more than the 20 minutes scheduled but it was a nice night out.

I also went to Old Navy and got two new tank tops and two new pairs of running shorts.  I only had 2 pairs of running shorts and would not make it through running in this summer heat without some additional pairs.  Fun colors!
