This morning, the temps were only around 72 degrees outside, but it was so muggy that my sunglasses fogged over and my shirt was soaked for most of my run. I suppose that running in this weather is good training for an extremely humid Chicago Marathon. However, I don't see myself actually running an entire 26.2 miles in these conditions. So, if it's like this in October, I will lay on my couch in the A/C and watch the race on TV instead!
Anyway, today was a nine mile tempo run at marathon pace (as opposed to an eight tempo last week) on the Lakefront Trail.
1 mile warm-up @ 8:09/mile
9 mile tempo @ 7:05/mile
No cool down
Next up: Recovery run tomorrow. Thursday: Track work-out at the North Park University track.
