14 of this weeks miles were on the Des Plaines River trail this morning. I suited up in my favorite running skirt, shoes and hydration pack for what I imagined would be a super sweat fest. I was not wrong. So putting ice cubes and ice water in your hydration pack is the best thing ever. Keeps you cooler longer and is just so much more refreshing then warm water. I am slow to catch on.
For once being unable to get up and get moving with any sort of speed paid off. The trail doesn't open until 6:30 so when I rolled up at 6:22 there was some waiting involved until the park ranger opened the gate but less than if I had been on top of it and gotten there at 6. I should really look into these things before I just show up.
Oh and Happy Anniversary to the hubs. Seven years and still going strong. Thanks for being my biggest fan D and for putting up with all the running crazy- you are the best!
How were your weekend runs?
Good but sweaty
Thoughts on going shirtless?
I have never been a fan but my be converted after today
