Six at Nine Near Ten: Same Old, Same Old of Six Miles

6.0 miles (59:05 - 9:51/mile)
1.0 miles hard walk

total: 7.0 miles

Current: Mostly Cloudy
Wind: E at 0 mph
Humidity: 99%
course: Glenbard South track

Current: Partly Cloudy
Wind: E at 0 mph
Humidity: 69%

I ran this same distance, same location last week in the same time. Today was slightly cooler, a lot more humid. Not sure how it compares; I felt more or less miserable each time.

I weighed myself before and after: 140.2 before, 137.6 after. If it only worked that easily.

This was my first morning run, starting today at 9:00 am. Tomorrow, I hope to get out earlier.

Another runner came around and did a couple or few miles at 6:00/mile pace. Good to see as I plugged around near 10:00/mile.

At a high school, smoking is often frowned on, but the workers putting in bleachers on the east side of the track, the visitor's side, apparently lit up as I gagged each time I went around the back stretch. I guess Glenbard South High School is OK with smoking on campus so long as it isn't a student.

Funny. I was on my long run last week when I noticed that my friend and I, running, were looked at oddly--but the numbers of people loitering while inhaling clouds of black smoke into their lungs were, largely, ignored. Hmmm.
