And a happy Friday to you, sir!

Friday 6.0 miles/56:05/9:21 average pace

I'm already getting sick of the heat. Not a good sign, considering it's not even officially summer yet. This morning I got up and had a very warm run. It was probably in the low 70's but there was no wind at all and I was just dripping sweat. I took a quick shower and jumped on my bike to go to work, thereby sweating more. Once at work, I poured myself a hot cup of coffee and toasted a bagel. :D That reminds me of the Seinfeld where George is sweating because the shower "didn't take" - that's just so true! Anyway, it's almost 10:00 and I'm finally dry and comfortable. Until I step outside at lunch!

Last night we couldn't bear going outside even just to drive to the gym, so we cranked the A/C and did an at-home weights workout. I'm pretty sore, but I know Zach doesn't get much from these workouts since the heaviest weights we have are 25 lbs. But it was a fun workout anyway.

Tomorrow morning I think we're going to drive up to Tiburon and run the hilly 9 mile loop. This is one of my favorite runs. I especially like the little restaurant that we'll go to after, where we can sit on the deck with a view of the city and eat omelets. :)

Tiburon is beautiful! I remember enjoying going through there on the way to the Angel Island race last summer. And yeah -it's starting to heat up for sure!

Definitely that time of year to get creative with the workouts. It's going to hit 110 here today and it isn't going away any time soon...ouch. Oh well, I'm off to PA on vacation in two weeks, so I'll get a bit of a repreve.

Great job with the run.

I'm not looking forward to the hot summer. It's not too bad here now since it's relatively cool in the morning, but I'm sure it can only get worse.

Ugh, nothing worse than showering and then not being able to dry off afterwards.
