My relationship with heat is tense.

“Seriously, Courtney will you ever learn?” is what I angrily asked myself earlier today during my run. I decided to sleep until 7 and push my run to 9 so I could eat a light breakfast and have some coffee.

While that sounds like a nice idea, and it would be in the fall or spring, it wasn’t a great idea today.

I know I’ve ranted many times about my dislike of summer weather (unless I am in a pool, lake or ocean). When I decided to go running at 9 it was already in the mid 80’s and the humidity was 97%.

Yes I like to run sometimes in the heat to build my stamina and make me appreciate cooler weather running, but too hot of weather is awful (and can be dangerous).

I’d give a million thumbs down if I could.

I’ll share some room pictures tomorrow once I get the painting materials cleaned up.

I have decided I really need to get back to my serious training schedule (all 5 am runs) because I have 22 days left of summer and I need to get back into the groove of working!

Have a great Tuesday night, and don’t forget to watch Extreme Weight Loss! Such an inspiring show.
