Beat the Heat

A bit of a pleasant surprise this morning. I woke up to overcast skies and a light rain falling. That was not in the forecast late last night, and I welcomed the error. Temperatures were also in the upper 60s... quite sane, especially compared to the lower 100s and upper 90s of the past two days.

More heat on tap for today (thankfully, the last day of the heat wave), but with the cloud cover meaning a delay in when the sun shines, hopefully it'll mean a lower than predicted high temperature today.

I hurried out the door to get out while the getting was good. Great call. I could have run again at night tonight, but today will be busy so good to do it now. Went well. Just took it short and easy, per the taper plan. Looking forward to cooler temps tomorrow!

Ran 5.2 miles @ 8:02/mile pace.
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Upper 60s, overcast, humid, intermittent light rain.
Brooks Mach 11, shorts.
