Run #96

I don't usually do long runs mid-week, but everything just worked out to make it happen this morning!

I got up extra-early and was going to head to the gym, but the humidity was way lower than forecasted, so I decided to run outside. I started my warm-up walk at 5:45, then ran for an hour, so I was finished before 7, with the sun low in the sky. (And it was cloudy, so I didn't deal with ANY sun issues.)

This was a hard route, lots of hills. Because I decided at the last minute to do a long run (when I'd already left the house), I didn't have any of my trusty Shot Bloks with me, and I missed the energy I get from fueling during a long run! The last, longest hill (which ended somewhere past the 4 mile mark) was hard, but I knew I just had to get past it, and the rest was very doable. Great run, and a great way to start my Thursday!

5.27 miles, 1:00:56, 11:34 avg. pace
76 degrees, 55% humidity, outside from about 5:45-6:55.

Great job and awesome! I'm so envious because of my disaster run yesterday. I'm hoping for similar weather during my runs this weekend.
