Sunday Seven

Ran 7 miles this evening, but the numbers weren't great. I finished in 1:12:01, and I'd been hoping to do the run in about 1:08. I can blame the heat some (it's currently 90 degrees out there, and it's 8:30 pm; I set out for the 7 miler at a quarter to 7 pm), and I can blame the iPod some (again, its batteries quit on me part way through the run), but ultimately, I think it was just one of "those" runs.

Eh, they happen.

Ouch 90 degrees at 8:30 PM! I dont miss that. I just caught up on your blog. That TV definitely looks like it was meant to be there

Seven miles on a Sunday look pretty good at any speed! :>)

That's some serious heat.

That's way better than I could do in that heat...

Sounds like a successful run without ipod and "those temps" Yikes.

i would find it difficult to motivate myself out of air conditioning if it was 90 degrees at 8:30 PM. Nice job!

Wes said...

You really need to slow down when its that hot. I loved the pic of Scooter and Jerry. LOL!!

Nah... He's not spoiled ;-)

Marcy said...

I understand the heat. You got out there and ran 7 miles, that's a huge achievement!

Great job.

Here's a little tip on how to avoid those types of runs:

Stop running altogether! Ta Da! Fixed! That's what I always want to do anyway.

It's okay. Gotta have some of the 'eh' runs to get the 'yesss' runs.

I would be falling face on the sidewalk if it was 90 degrees. I am just afraid that the dog might take a leak on me if I am lying there. I just don't know how you can run in that heat. 7 miles is nothing to sneeze at and the timing is still terrific. You will be amaze how well you will do when cooler temperature prevail.

Your iPod died and it was hot as hell? You're better than me. I probably would have bagged the run (like I did today).
