Saaaaaaay, What Gives?

I expected to be drenched by the end of the run, which I was. However, it was with sweat, not the rain that the weather people had predicted. The storm system is still off to the west and warm, muggy air is still in place. Cooler air is on the way though once the storm front passes through.  

Ran the trails and fire roads out back at an easy pace. No owls this morning, perhaps they're battening down the hatches. 

Taper madness hasn't really struck yet. This week has me doing around 80% of my volume, which isn't so bad. Next week is 66% though, and the final week around 30% of what I normally would do. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock...

Ran 5.1 miles @ 8:26/mile pace. 
Trails and fire roads. 
Mostly flat. 
Around 70 degrees, mostly cloudy, very humid. 
Adidas Adizero XT, shorts, headlamp.

You should have scheduled your run for the afternoon Jamie as it's pouring here! The weather this entire year has been bizarre and this just adds to it. Good luck with your continued tapering.
