Tuesday, August 18th
I managed to get out a little earlier today, did NOT want to run in the humidity. 83% humidity at 72 degrees, and it might as well rain. And it did, just drizzle for about 3 minutes. As I came down the initial hill westward toward the water, there was an ominous dark sky ahead. That kept things moderately interesting. I felt like I was flying down the hill, and keeping up the pace heading south. But, as this experience would have it, the humidity caught up with me, and I found I was forced to stop and walk as my heart rate went higher than I wanted it. I started playing around with pace, and breath control. I found what I thought was a good breathing rhythm, but I think although it made me feel better, I was slowing down. As a matter of fact, I walked quite a bit, initial computations look like I spent about 7 minutes walking. Is that true? Ugh. I’m too sweaty right now to even care. I did stop to take a pic.
Nothing else I really want to say about this run. Except I need a shower.
