Rain Delay

My plan for this week was to run hills on Top Notch Tuesday, rest on Wednesday, run hills on The Never Ending Hill Of Doom on Thursday, and run some FiveFingers sprints on Friday. (Basically, a repeat of last week.) But my Tuesday morning run was rained out so I'm shifting things around a bit.

Normally, I don't mind running in the rain... especially when it's as warm as it was yesterday. But there was quite a bit of lightning around and I didn't think running to the top of the tallest hill in the neighborhood was a good idea. So yesterday was an unscheduled day of rest.

That meant making up yesterday's run today so I hit Top Notch for some hill repeats. I stepped it up to 6 repeats this week and will probably work up to 8 before winding down for the half marathon.

Today's run wasn't that noteworthy except that it was a warm one. The heat and humidity are settling in this week and we're getting a mild taste of summer. There was a breeze today and all of my downhill running was in the shade so it wasn't that bad, but when I got home, it took a long time to cool off. Bring on the cold showers!
