Now that was fun! I decided that since the sun was out and it was almost 40 degrees I would wear shorts and run fast. I did a 1 mile warm-up and then did 5 miles at my fast pace. When I hit the 6 mile mark I decided to see how fast I could run the last two. Splits:
9:21 8:44 8:34 8:27 8:26 8:21 7:33 7:29
CC - It sounds like you are primed and ready to run this weekend! I'm betting SIAR that you'll kill that PR. *He says you can't do it but I have full confidence in you!
Jen - I'm getting sleepy just thinking about your schedule. I don't know how you folks do it. I just can't function for long periods without sleep. Great job getting your run in this morning and I'm glad everyone made it back uninjured.
RVD - I'm really glad that your hamstring is cooperating. You're on the home stretch now!
Jodi - Good work! I hope the weather holds!
Julia - Not a whole lot of wind up here and the sun made me feel warm.
* - OK, so he didn't really say that but a little manufactured drama is always fun.

I ran 5 this morning, 3 fairly hilly at close to MP with BoMF, slow jogged the other 2 before and after.
Back later for personals, hope everyone's week is off to a great start.

I agree with Jodi. Our high today is 86F. I've changed clothes up to three times during 20 milers. Humidity, sun and running is never a good combination for clothes.
I didn't even run outside for most of the run! It was inside. But no more intervals Rachel, I'm done . Taper madness hath begun.
lol....I'm in the middle of mine. but only 4 more days till it's over
I don't change clothes. they're just gonna get sweaty, stinky and nasty anyways. I'm usually soaked by mile 3 and to change that many times required too much time for me
It's not that. When it's 76 dewpoint the clothes get too wet and the pants start falling. So I have to change. our humidity is just too bad. People say 101% humidity does not exist but I beg to differ.
I've stopped to change socks and shoes before when i was running muddy trails. Other than that, I just go with it.
I don't do it often, but I always prepare the sets to change if necessary. It only takes me 2 minutes and boy am I ever grateful I did it.

Hi Julia, Jodi, Docket, JenRosie, Scott, CC, SIAR, RVDowning, NTSwift--
It has been a rough couple of weeks at work, which has not been good for my running or my participation in this forum (those two things always seem to go hand-in-hand). It also doesn't help the my TM died...for good this time. But I now have a streak of 2 days going! Hopefully, I can keep that up.
How has everyone else been? I know that many of you had some big races in the last couple of weeks. I look forward to going back and looking for some race reports.
