Currently in California we are having a small heat wave, just in time to start my Week 8 runs of course. Today we topped off at 34C but I was damned and determined to get that run in. It went a bit easier than I thought which sort of scares me. I am definitely not running a fast pace (I don't care if I run like a snail I want to say I did it), but part of me is scared finally finding that "zone". I guess I'm scared I won't find it again on the next run.
Does anyone else find themselves trancing out while running? I tend to keep my head up but my eyes are fixed on the path in front of me. That's where my focus is but I can still see what's up ahead. When I do look up and look around, that's when I start feeling tired. Is this just some odd trick I'm pulling with myself?
