But the one thing I am NOT loving about summer is running in this heat!!! It's seriously awful. I run in the morning or evening and stay extra hydrated to try to combat the heat a bit. Anyone have any magical tips for running in heat and humidity?
Another cool opportunity I had last week was to attend a free session of Gruver Fitness Outdoor Bootcamp. Gruver Fitness is run by Jeremy Gruver, who was a friend of mine in high school and my 11th grade homecoming date! After losing over 100 pounds, Jeremy started his Outdoor Boot Camp with just 2 members. He now has 7 sessions during the week and over 80 members! We "ran" into each other at a race in January. As you can see, we've both changed a lot since 1997!
Monday: strength program + boot camp at the gym
Tuesday: run + Gruver Fitness boot camp
Wednesday: "Got 15 Minutes?" (high intensity interval class) at the gym + strength program
Thursday: run (30 minutes + 15 minutes hills) + 1.5 mile hike + WAR class at the gym
Friday: Blended class at the gym (20 minutes each of Zumba, Step, and weights) + strength program + yoga
Saturday: Rest (sort of - I did a half hour of yoga and took a 45 minute walk)
Sunday: 5 mile run
