Deathly humid morning run

Now I feel pretty good, but I was toiling out there! I am not physically at my best in the morning anyway, and it is pretty intensely humid - only mid-70s, temperature-wise, but the water is just CONGEALING out of the air. I picked up a bottle of Gatorade at the corner store before coming home, and it was almost gone by the time I was getting out of the elevator and unlocking the front door - there are beads of sweat standing out all along my forearms, and I am waiting for the window unit a/c in my study to kick in properly so that my core temperature returns to normal!

It was a treat running with H., in any case, and we might try to have one more workout before I leave next week - possibly bike hill repeats next Wednesday morning very early...

5.5 miles

Well done.

I'm usually as drenched and dripping after a run these days as I am coming out of a pool. Good job getting the run done!

I am thanking my lucky stars that we haven't had much in the way of sweltering humidity out here yet. Let's hope it all doesn't come crashing through in August!
