Saturday morning mega humid run 6.64 miles
I was so hungry all day!
Yesterday after having driven down to VA Friday evening, I was still feeling the effects of LBM's disrupted schedule and ended up sleeping from 7 a.m. until almost 9 a.m.
Since LBM didn't sleep much during the night. Ugh!
But I was determined to get some miles in before we started our day. I didn't want my run weighing on my mind, keeping me from enjoying the day.
So while everyone else still slept I peeled off my CEP Compression socks which I have been sleeping in nearly every night since the Ultra and I hit the road.
Right away I know it was going to be a hard one because I had to return to the house to re-visit the bathroom.
Not something that usually attacks me a lot BUT in my part of VA there are very few opportunities to duck into a corn field. So I grab my water bottle again and headed back out the door for my 8 - 9 miles.
After the .35 mile to the "main" road I knew that the humidity was going to cut this run short.
I did enjoy ducking into a garage sale during my run but that aside it was a mental game of struggling through how hot it was.
The one thing that wasn't having a hard time; my legs.
Even since starting the Legs Love Lunges Challenge my CEP Compression socks have kept my legs feeling great!
No more cramps in my legs, no more fatigue after my runs. I didn't start wearing my socks until after the Ultra but I know that I would have benefited from using them much sooner. I didn't need to run a race to feel the quick recovery that these socks help provide.
After even my short run days, I slip into the Hot Pink socks and feel ready for the next day.
We enjoyed some entertainment on the walking mall in Charlottesville
