OK, that was horrific. Best thing about it- it got done.
I got a late start. At the start it was 80 degrees/ 90% humidity. When I finished: 81 degrees, 87% humidity, and dew point is 75. I ran hills and hills and hills. Admittedly, after looking at the route on line, only one hill qualifies as a Cat 5. So I guess it isn't that hilly, but that one hill...the cat 5, is a killer....
I hope this will help me in the future, because it was quite unpleasant today. I am glad I managed to get out and do hills...nice ot see an old route, instead of the WOT over and over. I do wonder what my time would have been on the WOT though...

    Yes, it's running. At least I think so. I like to think we are paying our dues this summer and pleasant fall temperatures are just around the corner!

    horrific is a great term to apply to this weather, for sure. I got an early start, Holly, and it was still very unpleasant. Good for you!!
