Even though it is only April 3, this morning was another very high humidity run. If it is this humid on Saturday morning then the Oak Barrel Half Marathon may turn into just another training run.
Humidity aside, this morning Nathan and I did a 10-mile, moderate tempo run through Belle Meade. We started with a 2-mile warmup, followed by 6-miles at a moderate 7:30ish pace, and then a 2-mile cool down.
Overall the run felt great except for the humidity and some persistent stomach problems I have been dealing with ever since the Honduras mission trip. I didn’t have any noticeable leg stiffness today like I did at the beginning of yesterday’s run. Also, the “tempo” portion felt pretty comfortable and not overly fast.
Tomorrow my plan is to do a very relaxed 7-mile “barefoot” Hattori run before taking a day-trip to NYC on Thursday.
