Morning Soup

Upper 70s and very steamy when I headed out at 7:30am this morning. Yech, though I fully realize other parts of the country are experiencing much worse. At least Maine is supposed to be back to close to normal temps tomorrow.

I had tweaked my lower back a little while rearranging my classroom yesterday, so I had planned on an easy pace this morning. However, the back was feeling better and loosening up as the run went on so I let the pace drop. Ended up with a nice progression and felt great, despite the insane humidity. After the first mile, I was already drenched in sweat. 

I'm planning on a second run later this evening, but will definitely do that one at an easy pace. Until then, will spend the day working on some writing projects and watching Le Tour, and maybe head down to the river for a swim if it gets too hot. 

Ran 4.6 miles @ 7:07/mile pace. 
Paved roads. 
Mostly flat. 
Upper 70s, partly cloudy, very humid. 
Saucony Kinvara, shorts.

Jamie,

Will you be at the 100 this coming weekend? I'm volunteering all weekend rather than running. You haven't listed it as a race, but I didn't know if you might be pacing.
