Not my greatest week.
I cut short a few intervals of my speed work on Monday. My run on Wednesday was supposed to be 10k goal pace steady, but I took several walk breaks. Even Friday’s easy run was a struggle because of the heat (and going sockless), and it took hours afterwards for my heart rate to go back to normal. Sunday’s run I ended up cutting 2 miles short.
Most of this was because nearly all of my runs this week were done in above-90 degree temps. Uggh. It makes it so hard to hit paces and to not take walk breaks, and I end up so dehydrated. But even Wednesday’s run, which was indoors on a treadmill, was rough to get through. I had sweat literally flinging off of me in every direction; I was so happy no one was on the machines next to me!
