This afternoon, Norah and I got in the car at 3:30 pm, and the car read 102 degrees. I don't always trust the accuracy of a car's temp reading, but either way, it was HOT out.
We went to join some friends at the cheap theater to see "Brave." Personally, I really liked it, and Norah did too (although, I think 90% of the story went right over her head), and it was the first movie theater movie that she sat* through in its entirety! When we got out of the theater, and back in the car at about 5:50, the car then read 92 degrees -- cooler, but still brutal.
An hour later, I was lacing up my running shoes and heading back out there to get my day's 5 miler done. I'm sure it was a few degrees cooler then, but not by much, and I didn't bother to check. It was a warm one, but because I had waited until 7 pm, the sun was setting, and it was surprisingly not an awful run, especially considering that for dinner I'd basically eaten popcorn and Gummi savers -- not exactly ideal running fuel. I did my share of sweating, and when I got home, Jerry declared: "Ugh! Look at that boob sweat!" referring to my saturated sports bra. Yummers.
So, that polished off my 35 mile week: Complete success! Next up? Bring on the 40 mile week this week! Which means I have to average 5.7 miles a day. I think I may just round up to 6 miles most days.
*"Sitting" is a relative term here. I should just say that she saw the whole movie. She was up and down in her seat plenty of times, and sat in my lap during a couple of the scary bear scenes, and we had to make one trip to the bathroom. Still, I got to see the whole movie, and that was a delight!
