Dearbabyjesus make this humidity go away. 73* and 95% this morning. It wasn't so much that my legs couldn't handle it but I COULDN'T BREATHE! There was a fog that make the air so thick.

Plan was to warm up a mile then a fast mile, followed by a slow until you die...I mean, hit 12 miles. Recovery miles were slow but still felt like an effort:
9:17, 8:17, 9:22, 8:00, 9:26, 7:46, 9:44, 7:48, 9:36, 7:51, 9:25, 7:48. First 3 and last 3 were hilly and I know the route so well, it was a mental battle.

Oh, but I did glow in the dark! Hot pink shorts, my Saucony Citron #GetSome A4's an sparkly headband. :-D

    Cool workout! I've never done that. I'll have to give it a go soon. Think I'll pass on the hot pink shorts though.

    Great run this morning! It was horrible out there, I felt it too. I've gone the route of...I don't think I want to be seen this early in the AM so I'm not wearing anything bright. lol I haven't figured out if that's a good thing or bad thing. Cars don't see me, but neither do would-be-rapists.

    Great job, Jenny! :) I always look forward to your posts both for amazing work you do and the entertaining way you share it with the rest of us. And, having run with you, I know that you have a great balance between taking things seriously from a training standpoint and also having fun at the same time.

    If you can't enjoy the weather, at least you can rock the clothes and shoes out there to make you feel better Jenny. Really tough workout in the conditions - way to nail some really fast "On" miles. Great job.
