Good, easy paced run on a very hilly route. 90% humidity, but I thankfully got out early enough to enjoy cloud cover for nearly the entire run. The sun just started to peek out during the last couple tenths of a mile. Not having the sun beating down along with the humidity makes a huge difference.
Felt better than I anticipated. Pace was actually a light progression. Shin splint in the right leg continues to nag. It's been going on for about a month but every time I have splints they typically last 4-6 weeks, so its days are likely numbered. I know trail running would help it, but I'll take the splint's aggravation over the deer flies any day.
Next two days will also be very easy paced. This is turning out to be a solid week. On pace for close to 70 miles for the week and with the race on Sunday I'll have had two speed workouts to boot...one light, one heavier. Good timing, it's getting to be that time where I'm at the heart of the training period for MDI.
Ran 10.1 miles @ 8:06/mile pace.
Mid 70s, mostly cloudy, very humid.
