Left the house this morning at about the same time as the run is going to leave on Sunday; and it was hot. Radio said 20 C with a "feels like" temperature of 27 C and although the clouds were present there was sun and little breeze;88% humidity. Very warm. But it was a pleasant run.
Weird tho, the way that huge effort seems to get you no where. I pushed hard and only managed to average 6:42 for an average pace. over 10 km that is 1:07 for a time. UGH. I don't know if I am tired or if that is the effect of the heat but it was pretty unpleasant. Even on the downhill portions I did not maintain a decent pace.
Plan for another 8 km tomorrow to be done in the park; then rest Friday and keep Saturday super easy with maybe 3 little bitty km to loosen up. Big run on Sunday.
