Hot Blooded

A very HOT run today!

I started a bit passed high-noon with sun cooking. I took along my last batch of Accelerade to drink. I also had a CHOCOLATE ACCEL GEL with me to chow down at 4 miles.

This run ended up being my slowest 7 miles (6.9 miles actually) of July. I ended at 1 hour 07 minutes and 33 seconds. The last 2 miles were slow with the temp will over 90F. By monitoring my breathing I could tell I was getting over heated. I was doing one breath in & one breath out for every stride. I was able to slow the pace to breathing in for three strides and breathing out for one. Much better...and I lived!Posted by Picasa
