Back in June, I resolved to become a better runner and applied myself wholeheartedly to RunsforCookies’s “your best 5K” training plan. I even used her summer running checklist as motivation to get creative so the challenge wasn’t so tedious.
But by the second week of July, I was officially a quitter. It was just toooo hot! Most of July was spent indoors in air-conditioning or marinating in a pool.
So for August, because it’s still hot and especially humid, I’m going to give myself 3 chances to get in my daily exercise:
- Lay out exercise clothes the night before and set my alarm for a 5:30am run/walk around the neighborhood.
- Get the girls involved in some evening yoga (we like this video).
- Take the dog for a long walk after the kids have gone to bed.
Perhaps if I can get through another 6 weeks of summer, I can resume my quest for my best 5K…
How do you fit in daily exercise when it’s so hot if feels impossible to move?
