The Dog Days are here with a vengence. I don’t think it would bother me so much but we have had little or no rain in the past month. The garden has wilted, the water bills are through the roof and it’s just plain miserable outside.
This has really hurt any kind of training schedule. I’ve been pretty much of a weekend warrior lately, opting for the long hard workout on Saturday or Sunday and doing little or nothing during the week. I could get up early and run or bike but early is early and I struggle to ignore the call of bed.
I’m heading for Queen Wilhelmina State Park today for some training and I hope to get some trail running in late in the day. The park is on top of Rich Mountain, the second highest mountain in Arkansas. My dream is that it will be a bit cooler up there. We’ll see.
