After a trip to see Callie (my daughater) run the NYC Marathon and 3 days off from running....

Got home at 2am so needless to say I didn't get up early to run.

Progressive Run...

66 Degrees, 94% Humidity, 64 Degree Dewpoint, WT 160/156 lbs.

Really hard to tell where I am fitness wise. My legs feel good but my cardio is suffering. I'm hoping this is just because of the warm, humid weather and that things will improve greatly when the temperature drops...hopefully in two weeks for the Chosen Half Marathon!

Pretty good tempo run today building up to the race this weekend. I don't believe this will translate to a really fast half marathon but hopefully respectful.

Last 20 miler before the half next weekend and the full marathon in 4 weeks. Time and effort wise, it compares with similar 20 milers 4 weeks out from race day. The effort seemed good except for the last 3 miles but the HR effort was good. May be just because I have really been run down not getting enough rest and sleep lately. The weather was okay at the start but got too hot late in the run.
