From the looks of my Google reader everyone had a wonderful long weekend! Aside from spending 12 hours in a car yesterday, I had a great weekend as well. We were in Asheville, NC for Joe's birthday/annual pig roast at his friend's farm just outside the city. I'l try and get pictures of that uploaded in next day or so, probably to facebook for those that are interested. We spent part of Saturday walking around the city itself, just getting a feel for the place and enjoying its funky charm. We might also have hit up a delicious Indian buffet for lunch too, ha ha. Since I can't go anywhere without finding something to bring home with me, I bought this ring from a street vendor and I haven't taken it off since.
Alas, my cell phone has paid the price. The sweat from my run got into the touch screen and it doesn't work anymore. Not sure what I'm going to do about that, I'm not eligible to get $ towards a phone upgrade for a few more months and I'm too cheap to just buy a new phone outright. I can still text, and whatnot, it is just a pain in the butt to do it. Boo hoo, first world problems. As far as this week goes, MCM training starts Saturday. I am not running today, between the epic drive home yesterday and the 95 degree temperature I just don't have it in me. Hoping to meet up with a friend's training group later on this week as a trial to see if I want to join. I've already committed to a long run group but having company for weekday speedwork and the like would be great too.
How was your weekend? What are your training plans for the week? What are your best tips for running in the summer heat?
