To make up for it, I figured some extra miles this week would cut it. Monday I ran 5 miles outside at 8 pm, and even at 90 degrees it felt amazing compared to Florida's humidity. Tuesday I ran 12 miles at an easy pace, and followed it up with 10 miles on Wednesday.
Was that stupid? Maybe. But I figure that running on really tired legs is good ultra training and good Hood to Coast training, so there you go.
I've had plenty of tasty food to get me through those extra miles, thankfully. Before we left Florida my dad pulled some fresh crabs right out of the water and my brother boiled them up for us to take home. Paired with some corn on the cob, it was the perfect summer meal. We, uh....we ate a lot of crabs.
This is such an amazing combination of sweet and salty. I added some mint as well for a little freshness, but I honestly thought it was fine without. A squeeze of lime or lemon juice ties it all together nicely too, if you're so inclined.
The forecast here is still in the 100s everyday, so you would think I'd be sticking to my treadmill, right? I'm going a little crazy and have a 7pm run planned tonight with the running group (luckily it ends with frozen yogurt) and a 10k race lined up for Sunday morning. Hopefully I'll live through both.
Are you a fan of feta cheese? Favorite way to use it?
Now, I can't get enough of the stuff. Any neat ways to use it would be appreciated, although straight from the container works pretty well too!
Anyone racing this weekend? Are you avoiding running in the heat?
I have a feeling I'll be hitting the treadmill when it hits over 100 - I can't handle it and I just end up feeling really drained, even with plenty of hydration. Looking forward to running in Germany next week - the high where we're going is 65 degrees and the low is 55. Are you kidding me? Running weather just doesn't get any better than that.
