A great 5-mile rest run
My wakeup heart rate was down to 53 this morning, and I felt fine when I got up. I was late getting out, but I ran my 5-mile rest run and felt fine during the run. I drank 24 ounces of water during the run, but my urine was a dark yellow afterward, indicating I needed more water during the run. The temperature when I left was in the high 70s (F) and was 85 when I returned. There was a nice breeze blowing which helped cool me during the run. We're still having higher than normal humidity but not as high as last week. I ate a couple handfuls of popcorn just before I left, and that didn't go over very well with my stomach. However, after a mile I felt fine.
