The Amazing Body!

I have been spending a lot of time outside. Usually after work, around 5pm I'll spend quite a bit of the sultry, humid evenings outside....basically because I love Summertime! I have been running early and this has been wonderful, too...the early morning in Summer is amazing! The haze, sounds, peace of a country road...man, nothing beats it!
Today as I took out for my EZ day I felt a surge of energy! I haven't really felt this for a long time; strength, confidence, a desire to RUN!! The intense humidity finally brought me back to reality because after 20 minutes of the best running I've had in a while I was back to survival mode:) My body has adapted to the heat! I am also amazed that my achillies has not said a thing today! It's acting like it's totally healed...not yet ole buddy, not yet. I will stick with my plan to train specific for a 5K then assess the current reality. 40 minutes of good running today! My goal is 195 minutes this week, so I'm needing 105 more minutes....Peace!
