Pace: 9:24 min/mi
Comments: Not my most stellar effort. Set out to get the usual four miles and had to settle for three. The most obvious culprits are the heat and humidity but not eating dinner last night didn't help either.
Still, the pace was a lot better than I had any reason to expect. The first two miles were at a reasonable pace and the last mile, although it felt pretty awful, was under the 10 minute mark.
I know I've got a long way to go in order to get back in halfway decent shape and waiting until the weather got like this was not the best move on my part.

Comments: This one was no fun at all.
I got up too late to run yesterday and the extra day off really did me no favors. I was stiff and a little sore the whole way on this run. Nothing that elevated to the threshold of injury pain but not good times.
And I really screwed myself by waiting until the temperature and humidity got to the level where, even at six in the morning, it's a sweltering mess.
So this was pretty much what you might expect, I started slow and got slower. My form was crap and the only good part about the run was finishing it. I got it done though.
