Not sure what got into me this morning but I ran one of my stronger 7 mile training runs today. The weather was great at 54 degrees, 43% humidity, 32 degree dew point, 11 mph wind and 156 lbs. Haven't been consistent lately running so I'll probably pay in sorness for this run! 3 miles in the 6's ... That's good for me on this run!

Wow...Summer is here today. 68 degrees, 81% humidity, 62 degree dewpoint, 11 mph wind, 154 lbs.

I read in one of my running books "when the sum of temperature and humidity exceeds 135, runners should modify their workouts." Seems I'm in that range almost all of the time. :-(

Nice running weather today, 61 degrees, 62% humidity, 48 degree dew point, 13 mph wind, 153 lbs.

I just ran today ... no intent, but it did turn out to be close to MP effort and time. I'm just running aimlessly right now with no races in sight. :-)
