That's Pretty Hot

It was 80 F this afternoon, but the humidity wasn't too bad at around 40%. A nice 10 MPH breeze. It was still hot!

I took the run nice and slow doing my 6.9 mile loop twice. I drank about 35 oz of water during the 2 hours 15 mins.

Though I'd been running for a couple of hours in the heat, I decided at mile 13 to pick up the pace. I was starting to feel fatigued so I gave myself a pep talk for about 30 seconds then dropped to a 8:08/mi pace. Did all of mile 13 at that pace. It's amazing what the mind can do with the body!

I really needed this long run today. It takes me to 49 miles half way through the month.
