12x400 on the hot, humid track. The workout actually felt decent (I'd rather do 400s in the heat than mile repeats) but the heat upset my stomach so I didn't really get in a cool down. 

started around 93 and slowly picked it up, finished around 82.

5k tempo with my favorite running group. Only one more tempo with them before I move :(

Oh, and I actually finished it this week... and without complaining too much about the heat! But I'll just say the heat index is STILL 96 as of 9pm! Grooooosssss.

Major bummer... Today was supposed to be my longish run (aiming for 7) but 4 minutes in I got stung my something. It got me on my forearm and flew away before I got to see it. In the past I have reacted pretty badly to bee stings, and the person at my school's health center (who are definitely not the most reliable) told me that I have a chance of having an even worse reaction (i.e. throat closing) so I have to be very cautious.  So I ran to my car and didn't want to go home, because I live by myself so that makes no sense. Instead I figured I would just start driving to the hospital and get something to eat on that side of town.  Yumm Chick-fil-A. 

I am home now and it has been a little over an hour. "They" say most horrible reactions occur within an hour, so I should be good. My arm is a little swollen and red and blotchy and I am just really hoping that it doesn't get much worse and then just goes away. Only time will tell.
