What a good Sunday. Started out with a 10 mile run. Which I really did not want to do. The alarm went off at 6am, and I kept thinking, 'No, no I can do it this evening....' But Husband was good, and told me I had to get up (I had promised him a 30 minute back massage if he made me go run this morning). So out we went, Husband riding his bike next to me, pushing me along.
After the first mile I was already dripping with sweat. After mile two, Husband looked at the current weather, and I was told it was only 73F...... with 100% humidity. I thought of cutting my run short at this point, but then realised it can only get less humid! I was about to turn around at 4.5 to head home, but Husband said just go a little further. I pushed through to 4.7 miles, then turned around, to head back. I got back to my street with 9.5 miles left, and as I predicted I needed to hit the 10 mile point, so continued to finish off that half a mile.
It was an extremely tough run, with such high humidity, but I am very happy I finished it. My splits:
Not too bad! Considering I was trying to go easy, I was happy. (This run was anything but easy though!)
After the run, we headed to Starbucks for a refreshing Ice Caramel Macchiato (love those things), and then to the beach with Dog.

Then, to rest on the couch in my latest gadget - compression socks. Seeing how they go with recovery. It is way too hot to wear them while running this time of year.
