I feel like crap.

Today is the 46th day in a row the temperature has reached above 90 degrees here in Nashville. The humidity today isn't too bad, or at least not as bad as it's been.

Yesterday, I did my 6 miles in the sun and heat and it was tough. I keep telling myself I'm in better shape than I give myself credit for. Six miles was brutal yesterday, even though I did 12 on Saturday (that was even more brutal). When the heat breaks, if it ever breaks, my true fitness level will come through.

At least that's what I tell myself.

I still look forward to my runs, but they are becoming less satisfying. I stay optimistic. My marathon is in October. In New York. It will be much cooler. I hope.

Tonight, after work, I will head to the Y for an easy 3, on the treadmill, with its built-in fan blowing on me, and some calm relaxing music on the iPod. Then some weight lifting for strength training (just a bit - I don't need to bulk up but I don't want to neglect my core & upper body, either). I need the exercise. Today has been stressful. Not bad, but I've had meetings and other things flare up at work, meaning the to-do list I wrote for today has largely been ignored. And, now, with an hour left in my workday, I don't have the energy to deal with it.

Ah, well, tomorrow is another day. And, more importantly, Friday. And the list isn't going anywhere.

I don't envy you the heat and humidity. When I was in DC it was sooo sticky that i hated to go outside!
