I survived two weeks of running 4.5 miles. This weekend I will move up to five miles and be half-way to my ten mile goal. I'm getting into new territory now. In the past, I stopped running during the summer because of the heat. However, it's too hard for me to start back up so I am going to have to find a way to deal with it. I now carry a small bottle of water with me which I sip on during my walk breaks. It helps, but I'm finding that toward the end of my run I am really drained. My guess is that I'm running out of fuel and will need to start planning for that as my miles increase. I'm sure I'm sabotaging myself by not controlling my pace better. The walk breaks make me feel like I can run faster, so I do. However, by the end of my run I'm starting to have a hard time breathing. Some of this is from my asthma and some is due to the hot, muggy weather. All this extra running is making me hungry all the time, so I've really had to watch what I eat.
