When you wake up to an unexpected morning in the 70's! Rain in Mississippi brought temperatures down 15 to 10 degrees over the weekend, and Saturday's run was effortless. I did 10 miles, and since we were staying in Bay St. Louis I included the Bay Bridge and South Beach Road to get some "hills" in.
Since I missed Spring running thanks to injury, I haven't run in decent weather in months (since April), so I was curious to see what easy pace translated to when I wasn't running in 90 degree weather. I'd say it was about 7:20's. I ran a faster average than that Saturday but that is because I picked up the pace for the last mile and a half. Before then, 7:20 felt just right. In the heat, I've been running closer to 7:50 for a ten mile run.
How has your summer running been? Have you gotten any lucky cooler mornings to give yourself a break?
