Heat training in December?

I-love-when-a-plan-comes-together

I ran a short tempo run at lunch – five miles with the middle three fast. Not super-fast, but where I would like to run a half marathon. It was hard – really hard.

It was much harder than I wanted it to be. The temperature was the culprit. It was 70+ degrees and 90% humidity. This is not half-marathon PR weather.

NOTC’s 30th Annual The Ole Man River Half-Marathon and 5K is this weekend. I have PR’d the past three years. A cold front is on the way – 36 for the low on Sunday. I love it when a plan comes together (maybe).

I used to watch the A-Team with my dad all the time and he had a way of repeating that quote that made me just laugh hysterically. Thanks for the memory. Funny enough, my 10 year old found the entire series on Netflix and watched it (every episode) this summer. So now he "gets" it when I repeat the quote. :)
