Torturing myself

My punishment for missing the race on Sunday was to make myself run the full 5K immediately after work in the sweltering heat of mid-afternoon. I was going to force myself to extend things too, but I was already dehydrated from work, and not drinking enough water today. Also, I can't be sure I was fully recovered from the weekend.

On top of that, I didn't take shady routes and did it all in the sun. I was reeling afterwards, but I forced my way through. Of course there will be warmer, and more humid days ahead, but today was a big jump in temperature and I haven't adjusted yet.

In the process I gave away my super hero identity (The Human Waterfall)
