Optimal running weather it isn't. Cooler, drier air would be nicer, but get with the program. This is Chicagoland. Salt glistens bitterly on my lips -- it was a good run.
With a race behind me yesterday, followed by a long afternoon in Grant Park downtown listening to blues, I awoke tired. Today was a "phone it in" run, the kind which I need to do just for the sake of continuity and fitness. These are the runs I skipped last year, the ones I made excuses for, and one reason why I missed the 20:00 mark.
It started slow, sped up, then slowed considerably as the heat found me.
Tomorrow's a day off, followed by a somewhat hard three miles on Tuesday.
