I think my last "long" run was on July 4th, a 10K. I ran a 10K last night as a training run for my 4th Half Marathon, which is SUNDAY. Yup, since my last half on May 1, the longest I've run is a 10k. Not frequently, not regularly, not nothing.
I do not like running in the summer. I don't like the heat, I don't like the humidity and my asthma doesn't like it either. I am trying out using Singulair to treat my exercise induced asthma on these awful days, but it's really hard to determine what's causing my misery when it's hot, humid AND i'm completely out of racing form.
The good news (for my running) is that we're on the down side of summer, so things will cool off soon. The Rock N Roll Half is supposed to be the mid-point of my marathon training, and it's almost become a relaunch. Whatever, gotta get it done. After this weekend, I'm heading into previously untravelled experiences runningwise, letting the weekend long runs start drifting upwards of 13.1 miles.
Well, I'll let you know how it goes on Sunday. I'm hoping to run more than I walk, and enjoy the scenery and the music of the first Providence Rock and Roll Half Marathon.
