A nice 5-miler
I skipped my run last Saturday because I was up late Friday night and didn't get as much sleep as I needed. I was tired and decided to rest. I was busy yesterday and did my run today. My wakeup heart rate this morning was 53 and I felt fine. However, I didn't get out until 1 pm, and by then the shade temperature was in the low 80s (F). I didn't take water with me, and I got pretty thirsty. I had a good rest run, however. It was a beautiful day, lots of sun (too much sun for a runner) and some clouds and a slight breeze. The breeze helped in cooling me off. I sweat a lot, and the breeze increased the evaporation of my sweat.
