I went for a brutally humid run on Sunday in town. Again, I was very busy and had to find time to fit it in. So... instead of doing it early (my wife had breakfast in bed for me that morning for Father's Day), I ended up doing it in the heat and humidity. I ran a 3 mile loop and stopped (by stop, I mean grabbed Gatorade and kept running with it in my hand) in the middle to rehydrate.
The first 3 miles were done at a pretty nice clip (8:56, 8:32, 8:52). But, then the heat and humidity got to me and I kind of petered over the last 3 (9:40, 9:35, 9:00). That's backwards to how I want to be running my runs. So, I'm gonna try and do the opposite on my long runs from now on. But, it was still a nice first 3 miles.
Run recap- 6 miles, 54:38, 9:06 pace
