Texas always get s a bad rap for being so hot. The reason is because it is stupid hot here. I am slowly learning the value of waking up each morning at 4:30am to run at 5:30am while its still in the 60-70’s. If I wait any longer than that, I face the consequence of running in 90 degree weather. That is no fun!
Why do I get up so early if I am running at 5:30am? I need fuel to run. If I were running a couple miles, I’d eat a banana or two, but since I run 7 days a week 5+ miles a day, I need protein and fat in my system before I set out. A great breakfast to help me get my miles in are two to three eggs cooked in coconut oil, 1/2 an avocado, a spoonful of walnut butter, two glasses of water. Yum, Yum. Perfect breakfast for my body type if I am going to run 5+ miles.
I heard a rumor that once I start running for 90min, I will need to bring food with me to eat while on the go. Any validity to that?
Here’s to 3 long months of 90-100 degree weather. Hopefully this year Texas will not try to break its record of how many days it can get over 100 degrees.
