Rain! Tour de France

Yes finally, a little rain, and with it slightly cooler temperatures. It was only 22C/72F at 6 a.m. this morning. It is kind of sticky today - really humid, my arms are sticking to the desk as I write

Last night I did my weight training, I guess it was up to almost 40C/104F in the shed. Outside temperature was 35C/95F, but there was a slight wind which made it more bearable when I did my 3K jog after WT. In any case by the time I was done I looked like I had just taken a shower with my clothes on!

Tonight I am debating whether to drive to Weingarten (where our garden club is located) and run my ~14K/8.7M hill trail, or stay home and run my normal 14K route. I guess it will depend on the weather, if its raining I don’t like to take my scooter out on the roads, too much traffic, and half the people seem to be blind when it rains!

Summary of Last Night's Training:

Warm-up;
1 set 15 pushups, 1 set 25 sit-ups;
1 set of weight training (WT) exercises;
1 set 15 pushups, 1 set 25 sit-ups;
3K run (17:49)
1 set 15 pushups, 1 set 25 sit-ups;
Cool down.
Conditions: 16:15; 35C/95F, sunny and hot.
Feeling after training: Legs a bit sore, I was working the lower body a bit during WT.

Wake-up weight this morning: 75 kg/165 lbs (back down to where it was last week)

Other Ramblings

The Tour de France is coming to our area! On July 8th stage 7 of the route will end up near Karlsruhe, about 10 minutes from my office. My company is closing in the afternoon to allow people to view the event. Cool!

Did you know that Blogger has a new image tool? Of course I had to "play" with the new tool, here is a picture of my 3K and 14K/8.7M running routes, more or less (from earth.google.com, click on the images to zoom):



And my 14K/8.7M route:

Hot and sticky in CT:) Hey, I started a new weight training program this morning at my new gym. I think I'm going to like it! That's so cool about the Tour. Can you take some pics for us?
 
We've had way too much rain. I could handle hot and sticky. That's cool that you get time off to watch the Tour.
