7/26 Run

14 miles, 8:46 pace. Hot, hot HOT. I got spanked during this run this morning. I actually wanted to do 15 to try to get ahead of my schedule, but I didn't have it in me. I heard on the radio while I was running that it was 77 - but it was 95 to 100% humidity at the time (read: fog). So, it seemed a LOT hotter than it actually was.

Additionally, because my brother in law needed to catch a flight, I started at 5:00am. So, in order to increase my visibility while it was still very dark, I wore a bright white running shirt. However, this also increased the heat effect because of the trapped moisture.

However, I did finish the miles, even though it did involve a bit of walking through crosswalks. Hopefully I'll continue to increase in speed and will be able to knock mileage out like this with ease in the coming months.

Am I reading that it is somehow partially my fault that you were all sweaty? ha ha
