Today, I ran over to the Rec Center to meet at the usual Sunday time and place for the usual Sunday 10 miler. Lanier, Carl, and I were the only takers on this brutally humid morning. I think today was the worst yet. When we started, the temperature was 73 and the dew point was 72. That's 96% humidity. Yuck. By the time we finished, the temp was nearer to 80, and the humidity was still above 90%. I was SOAKED. My shoes are still not dry.
I struggled mightily with today's run. I know that Carl had much more in the tank than I did and I slowed him down. It took all I had to maintain our 8:09 average pace. I knew I was in trouble early in this run. I tried very hard to hold on and it took all the effort I had just to finish this run. I did not finish strong, I just finished. At the end of the run, I had to hitch a ride home with Carl. I certainly didn't have enough in the tank to run home. Thanks for the ride, Carl!
