This was rough! Went out on an empty stomach and I haven't eaten much today, so between that and the heat and not riding for 2 weeks, this pretty much sucked as my pace shows. BUT.... I DID get out there, I made sure NOT to sit down at the computer and made myself change and put on sunscreen and just kept going till I got out the door. Almost gave it up when my bike fell over in the kitchen and half my water bottle spilled all over the floor. For once I welcomed the wind, it felt good! To top it off, about 1/2 mile from home I almost got hit by a car!!! Like within 5 feet... luckily the lady saw me in time and I was able to swerve around her. I'm sure she thought I was at fault, but I'm pretty sure I had the right of way (unmarked intersection, ie no stop signs, and I was coming from her right) AND I was wearing my See Me Wear jersey and my blinding yellow helmet! My route was supposed to be about 18 miles, but I decided since it was pretty much sucking, not to risk any heat type injuries and cut it short.

Third day of school and the exhaustion caught up to me, couldn't get out of bed at 4 a.m.  Reset the alarm to 5:30.  Hopefully I can get something in this afternoon but it's supposed to be near 100, ugh.

Didn't have to walk!! Felt pretty good. HR went crazy at first and looks like it stayed pretty high once it settled down, whatever...

Had to do a short one since I had to be to school by 7 a.m. for morning duty, first day back with kids!!

The PLAN was to go for a bike ride afterschool... the reality is I sat down at the computer and I think I've morphed into the chair, T.I.R.E.D.!  Really feeling voice strain after talking all day and I brought home work I need to do before tomorrow (seating charts).  Think I'm gonna put on my jammies and plant myself on the couch.  Thankfully hubby made a casserole and all I have to do is preheat the oven and shove it in there for 30....

5K race, 4th place AG but the Ag's were 10 years (50-59). I'll have to look later to see how I placed in traditional AG's. Considering how little I've been working out, this isn't too bad! Kinda freaked out when I looked and saw my HR was at 180! Slowed it down a bit and had to walk some the last half. Ran right past my house, was tempted just to walk in and get a cup of coffee, ha ha!! My grandson did the Fun Run, a 1K, and he was done by the time I got to the finish line, but I guess he spanked some running @$$... was the first one across the finish line by a LOT!! He got a certificate, but no medal, :( . Hopefully this run was enough to spark up some motivation!!! I have to be at school at my duty station at 7 a.m. thru Wednesday, then it will be normal schedule, but I should be able to at least get in a short swim or a short run those mornings.

Aw man, looked at official race results and I would have been 1st AG if they had the normal 55-59 AG.... oh well, I ended up 4th out of 24.
