- It was freeing to run in shorts and a tank at the beginning of the week but it’s too soon for 70 degree temps (I’m a sweaty gal). I’m happy it cooled down, but of course, that was a shock to the system (my run on Saturday was 40 degrees cooler than Tuesday’s)!
- It felt weird to not do speedwork on Thursday, which is good – Thursday speedwork has become a habit!!! I didn’t do it because I decided to do the Frosty Footrace on Sunday, afterall. Sigh. I’ll post about that later this week.
- I know CPR, but had a reminder in class this week that I should take a general first aid class. I’m going to see what my park district offers!
