I'm in Illinois now and will be here until next friday. The weather is much cooler but the dew point is still high. I didn't run yesterday so I was pretty fresh today. I didn't really have a plan for running today so I just went out with the intention to run maybe 6-10 miles by feel.
The terrain is fairly flat here with just a few small rolling hills. On the first mile it seemed my legs just wanted to go the slow pace I've been running the last few weeks but after a mile or so I was able to convience them that it was okay to run faster. Most of this run was fairly easy but I did push it on the last mile but not to race effort. We'll see how I feel tomorrow before determining a running plan for the next few days. I'm hoping the dew point goes down a little. I believe I will get another boost of energy if it does. Today the temperature was 69 (nice!) the humidity was 85, and the dewpoint was 69. This is still not in a very good range for running per the chart I posted the other day about dew point.
