Good news: I ran 6.2 miles!
Bad news: It was a really rough run. 😕
The combination of heat, humidity, and lack of hydration really did me in. I even ended up walking a few times. It was just not a good run. 😕
I’m actually kind of surprised how thirsty I got during my run. I mean, it was nearly 90 degrees outside, so, of course, I was thirsty, but I’ve run 5 miles in similar weather and been totally fine. I guess I need to get one of those water belts? Or a Camelbak? Any recommendations?
Here are my splits:
- Mile 1: 8:35
- Mile 2: 9:01
- Mile 3: 9:08
- Mile 4: 9:14
- Mile 5: 9:34
- Mile 6: 9:26
As you can see, my pace got slower and slower with each mile. My body was so hot and dehydrated, it just would not move any faster. Next time, I definitely need to bring some water. Lesson learned!
I have to admit, this dish was a bit bland. I used unsalted peanut butter, not realizing it would make a huge difference in the flavor of the sauce. Salted peanut butter would definitely taste better in this recipe.
Even still, Mal and I really enjoyed this meal. It’s a keeper, but next time I’ll use salted peanut butter.
I got so much accomplished today, I am taking the rest of the night off to relax. Wahoo!
Enjoy the evening!! 😀
