Mo' Heat

I was hoping it'd be hotter today to get in some more running in the heat, but perhaps today was a good warm-up of sorts for the 90+ temps we're supposed to get again tomorrow. Today, just the lower-mid 80s depending on which thermometer you want to believe. Humid also. Not soupy, but the air was still far from dry.

Run went well. Hit the railroad beds near the school, which provide gradual hills and wide, relatively smooth trails. I felt really sluggish the first mile, but after that, a complete turn around and I felt great for the rest of the run.

Ran 7.1 miles @ 8:38/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A (didn't feel like wearing strap)
Moderately hilly.
Lower-mid 80s, sunny, humid.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.

Drive down to CT if you want heat. It was around 98 degrees and humid here today. Yikes!

Sounds like you are ready for WS100. It must feel good to be tapering!

It's 100F here in VT right now. But, a big band of thunderstorms is headed our way (a tornado watch is in effect for today!), and things will cool down later. Get out for one more hot run while you have the chance.
