On the positive side, it did seem that we got a slight break from the humidity this morning. The dew point is 66F, so the relative humidity was around 70%-ish at 74F. That's better than the 90-95% humidity that we've been battling in the mornings recently. It's still far from comfortable, but it's better.
When I started, I hit the first 0.25 mile mark at 1:35. I knew then that I was in for a long day! That was way too fast. I have to figure out how to run tempo miles. I'm running them too hard right now. I was able to back off and pull that first mile in a reasonable 6:47, though. But it just sped up from there.
And I don't feel nearly as bad an hour later as I did right after I finished it. I guess that's why I run. I can wake up feeling rotten and then feel better after running.
