Weeks 4 & 5 of Dopey Training

It’s hot in Arizona and in July and August it gets humid. When I go out to run at 5 or 5:30 am it is between 87-89 degrees and on humid days its 50% humidity. That isn’t as much as other parts of the country, but it sure is a run killer!

I did get to run with my brother two days during Week 4. He runs about 3 miles, so we ran 3 miles together and I ran a couple more miles on my own. Then during my long run on Sunday I ran the first 8 by myself and then met him to run the last 3. That was so nice! It broke up my run and gave me something to look forward to. It was nice having someone to talk to also! I miss having a running partner!

Week 4
July 21- 5.3 miles
July 23 – 6 miles – nice split run with my brother 🙂
July 26 – 11.63 – also ran with my brother

Week 5
July 28 – 5 miles
July 29 – started track runs more about that later!
July 31 – 3.75 miles
Aug 2 – 10.52 miles
