I did my first summer run yesterday! O.k maybe not exactly a summer run because usually, you don’t have to avoid snow banks on those !
To put you into the context (so you can understand why I'm so happy), this week’s weather was more winter style than it was spring. I had to bike inside on my trainer for two reasons: First, it was below freezing in the morning so I couldn’t go outside. Second, I had to acclimatize to the heat doing some crazy heat and humidity sessions where I got to count sweat drops hit the floor instead of minutes when things got harder. But I did it all for St-Croix and that was very motivating.
The weather was not better for the runs! On one of my runs this week, it hailed as I did my hill repeats!
But YESTERDAY!! I got up and it was sunny (good start), I walked downstairs, opened the door and felt heat and humidity hit me from outside, the thermometer made it up to 28 C. NO WAYYY! Summer had made it to my doorstep at the end of a winter-like week! SURPRISE!
I had a great time running along my favorite trail, trying to imagine I was on the course on the beautiful Island I am about to go to!
Only three more days before I travel to the race. Final preparation has begun!!!
