Pace: 9:41 min/mi
Comments: The weather has finally taken the turn for the worse. It was warm it was humid and I didn't get out until the sun was up. Not even a quarter mile in I was sweating hard and it was a battle the rest of the way.
So form, conditioning, pace; all of that went out the window. This was a straight slog to get the four miles in. And it was miserable.
As expected, my pace deteriorated pretty badly over the last two miles. Interestingly, the second mile was my fastest. But that could have contributed to the awful final lap. The best part about this run is it is over.

Pace: 9:25 min/mi
Comments: Surprised myself and not only got up early enough for the run, I also didn't let myself find an excuse not to do it. But after a week of regular runs, I'm kind of getting back into the rhythm.
This one wasn't too bad. The temperature was delightful and I got done before the sun came out and started heating things up. I wasn't sore or tired at all and felt strong the whole way.
The last two miles were less than a second off so that's another good indicator for conditioning. Just gotta keep getting the runs in.
