Glorious weather the morning after a cold front broke the heat wave. 70 when I left and 77 when I returned, with a dew point around 55. Nice route too, which put me in the shade for more than half of the run. Felt good the whole time, but instead of running faster I stopped only long enough to fill my water rather than taking the 2-3 minute breaks I had been taking in hotter weather. Even ate gels (3) while running, which hurt my stomach and reverberated into my back as it does in marathon races. Must learn to deal with that. Other than that, my lower back muscles didn't hurt during the run. It was very tight immediately afterward but now (same evening), for the first time in weeks, feels pretty good.
