I think this long(ish) run may rank up there with one of my worst runs EVER (although the Tower of Terror 10 Miler still officially holds that honor, this was a VERY close 2nd). When I left at 7am the humidity was at 98% and by the time I was done (it was supposed to be 10 miles but I cut it short) it felt like 90+ degrees, I was out of water and I thought there was a good chance I was going to pass out (there was a lot of walking involved in this “run”).
Oh, and we keep seeing these big flock/ pack/ herds (whatever) of wild turkeys when we’re driving out of our development at the Cape and I am terrified of coming across them on a run…so of course my next run I see this guy:
It started crossing the street towards me at one point and I totally freaked out (although maybe it just didn’t like having its picture taken). Apparently these things can be pretty violent (google Wild Turkey attacks…) so I’ve been trying to formulate a plan as to what to do if one (or a whole herd) come at me! I read they don’t like water so the best I’ve got so far is chuck my water bottle at it and run towards the ocean screaming “I’m a vegetarian!!!”
Any wild turkey experts out there have any better suggestions??!
NEXT WEEK (7/15-7/21)
I still feel like I am so behind on where I wanted to be as far as Marine Corp training. I had really hoped to be getting some speed work in and wanted to be farther a long on my long runs, but I am enjoying my time at the Cape and doing what I can to get my runs in so I can’t complain!
Hoping to get 3 runs and 3 days of yoga on the beach in this week!
