hot humidy hazy hilly

The soup has returned. I knew it was too good to be true. I got up early and made myself get outa the house which I've had some trouble doing over the last few weeks. I was out the door at 7:20. It was about 73 degrees and 80% humidity.
Even though I used about half a stick of body glide, I chaffed. 
Under my boob. For this reason alone, I want cooler weather. I'm soaked to the bone the first mile in.
Anyway, I decided to do the North hills 2x to start my run then I just ran around the park.
I averaged 9:43 pace with my last 3 miles being the fastest. I also ended by going up the hill on Morningside. 
Over all, I think it was a good run.
Tomorrow, I'm doing the Fitness 4 miler, only because it's a point race. I will, however, be doing it as a recovery run so really just a run with a number.

Congrats on the run! I was bitching about my intervals yesterday in 75 and high humidity and afterwards, thought I'd overcomplained because of those fab women in our BQ thread who run in 88 degrees. Then I remembered how utterly soaking wet my clothes and body were before I was even done and realized that's just not normal! So I will continue to complain (and rightly so) as long as we have this disgusting weather. :D

Hope the chafing doesn't leave a long-lasting scabby spot. I've had that on the neckline of my sports bra lately. Like you, doesn't matter how much lube, the humidity sneaks right through.

Im so glad I snuck my intervals in before this nastiness returned.
