Running Log Crusted Salt #214
My question just shows I have a lot to learn.
I will pay attention to dew point the next time I train and the next time I do a MAF test.
I just thought it the drop off was pretty major when I was expecting 10 or so seconds and not 30+.
Thanks for your input.

I am going to have to spend a few minutes with the wunderground.com site and understand the temp/dew point chart a bit better, but this is an interesting variable in the formula.
This is very helpful, because we've had a cool spring, and I was running fairly consistently between 9:40-10:05 on my runs over varied distances, even 7 mile runs. Now, with a little more summer-like weather, I have noticed a steady increase in my times. It is a little frustrating, but will try to convince myself to stay the course and that it will pay off in the long-run.
Yesterday, over a three mile run, which included a good hill, my average time was 10:33/mile, which is higher than all my previous runs. I would hear my watch beep, telling me I went over 148, and I felt like I was going so slow and it was frustrating.
This input gives me some assurance me that it is/or could be normal and not to panic.
