A short 7 mile run around the pond in the park last night in the heat didn’t take too much out of me, but woke up this morning feeling very fatigued, so decided to skip the planned 10k. The lingering summer cold and cough that I thought I had gotten over seemed to be back, and along with the oppressive heat of the day, I felt like the illness would do me in if I decided to race. Decided to stay in bed and catch up on sleep.
Felt better later in the day after sleeping in, so headed out for a run. Got in 9 ‘easy’ miles around the city and the waterfront where the fireworks will be, a brutal run in the 90+ degree humidity that felt more like 19 miles even with water stops. Glad I skipped the 10k
