I woke up late this morning so I ran 3 miles with Eth and then after that I went and did another 4 miles, started out slow and then slowly build up the pace until at mile 6 I was at 7:50 pace after that I slowed down the last mile to just under an 8:30 mile to finish up. My legs were not into it today so I really had to concentrate just to get through the run, my average pace was 8:25 with my total time at 59:10. Mile 6 was tiring but then when I saw the pace I went I could see why, I don't know if its the humid air or the hotter than normal mornings that are taking its toll but my energy level is pretty much gone! Oh well, no strength training this morning as I am late and I need to get going.

See ya tomorrow.

I think it is the heat/humidity taking a toll on us. I've felt the same way lately and I notice my HR shoots up pretty quick in the muggy weather. SHould make things feel pretty nice once it finally cools down and dries out!
