Beating the Heat

Mid-80s in the evening this week. It's great that summer is back! Do I really want to get my miles in when it is 80? Not really. I've been splitting the medium long mid-week runs as it is typically a little hard for me to get in more than 10 miles. At about a 10 minute pace, 10 miles take 1h 40 minutes and I generally need to stop for a bathroom break, water breaks and traffic breaks. The schedule called for 12 today.

It was time to suck it up and get up early to get the miles in. I was out the door by 5:01 and feeling good. My easy pace has gotten a bit faster (heart rate is staying low even though I'm running a bit faster). I saw a friendly face out there too. She was out there beating the heat as well!
