Record Heat

Hard to believe it was into the lower 90s this afternoon. Blazing hot for late-April, let alone any other time of the year. At least it was a very dry heat (humidity 21%) and there was a strong breeze blowing. As a result, the sweat evaporated instantly off the skin while running. My shirt was still nearly bone dry at the end of the run.

Good to run in the heat though. Dry heat is pretty common for the Western States 100, so might as well take advantage of getting used to it when I can. Let's just hope no wildfires get sparked this time.

Ran 5.0 miles @ 7:44/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 158/172
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Lower 90s, partly cloudy, breezy.
Shorts, short sleeved shirt.
