Three Things Thursday- late edition

I crossed the line from dedicated to nuts today. I did 3 workouts, one of which tonight when it was still 105 degrees outside.
  1. 5:30am run with my becoming-regular running buddies. 4.02 miles in 43 minutes. It was 92 degrees when we started our run and had actually cooled to a lowly 89 by the time we finished. 
  2. 50 minutes of strength training at the gym.
  3. This is where I got crazy. North Texas Runners had a scheduled social run starting at 7:30pm. I planned to just meet up after the run for shaved ice, but Lesley twisted my arm. I've been following her blog for some time and she was part of the run club before I joined. But we've never run together and this was the first run we could both make. So I agreed to run, but slowly and likely with walk breaks. I'm very much a peer pressure runner- I will run harder/faster/longer just to keep up with the cool kids. I ended up starting the run with Jake. We never get to run together, so that was an opportunity not to be passed up. The route offered a good amount of shade and surprisingly it didn't feel much (if any) worse than it did at 5:30 in the morning. We decided to run to the park, stop for a potty break, then back to the shaved ice place. On our way back from the park we ran with Lesley and a couple others. Total distance was 4.57 miles in 51 minutes. Finished off the run with an extra large cherry flavored shaved ice.

I had a blast! Actually enjoyed that run. We're hard core enjoying a 100+ run.
