All right, today was the last run to hit my little, completely arbitrary goal of running 4 times a week for 3 weeks. And it also wraps up June with 43.2 miles. I’ll take it!
Today’s run was a 3 mile loop up and along the busy roads. My pace was slowed by really uncooperative traffic lights… It wasn’t quite as humid today, so I felt like my body could actually cool itself, for once.
When I run at home I use a little handy bottle with a pouch to keep my keys in. The bottle is great; it’s shaped so that it fits nicely in my hand with a strap so I don’t have to death-grip it while I run. When I start running, the water in the bottle is nice and cold… but my hands are really effective radiators so after a bit the water’s warmed up to nearly body temperature and isn’t so nice. (I drink it anyway.)
