Started my run this morning at around 8am. It was overcast and according to my house thermometer, the outdoor temp was a relatively cool 70 degrees! So I made my way to the to the lakefront. Unfortunately, the sun came out and the temps started to soar. Had to walk twice during my 9 mile run. By the end of my run the temps were in the 80s. Oh well, the cooler temps were nice while they lasted.
The last time I trained seriously was in March, so as of now, I am not used to running in the heat. I will definitely need to acclimatize to the hot temps soon so that I can do some heavy duty marathon training in July, August and September.

Total Miles for the day: 9 at 8:03 pace (includes 2 walks).
