Put on the long bottoms, my Steeler tossel cap, and two long sleeve tops and headed out for an easy 14 on the Drumlin. Was able to get water a couple times. It only reached about 62 degrees, but I want to continue heat training for Voyageur. Got 32 in over the weekend, so ended with 57.5 this week. I'll take that. Ice Age was 4 weeks ago and I have been at least 50 miles the past 3 weeks. I believe I am starting to tolerate the heat better after close to three weeks of bundling up 3-4 times a week. Didn't really need to when in was in the 90's.
I'd really like to get back to running about every day. I seem to get stronger when I don't take a lot of days off. I don't plan on running fast, I just want to get the miles in. I'm always conjuring up schemes. My new one is try and run 30+ over the weekend and get around an hour the other days. Voyageur is generally hot, so that is what I will concentrate on...training for the heat. Not that I can run 10 minute miles at Voyageur the whole way, but I think that's where I will end up going out at. Last year, I felt great at the half and took off. Went from about 30th to top 10-12 and then proceeded to have an epic crash. I think I split the race 4:21/5:37. Thinking I can gain an hour on the second half if I stay controlled and don't race. At least that's the plan. Putting the number on tends to change things.
