My wakeup heart rate was 54, and I felt good as I did some morning chores and then prepared for my run. I ran the 2.66 again and felt pretty good during and after the run. I was late getting out again, but this time I took an extra bottle of water with me. I rationed the water to one cup (8 oz) per mile, and that came out just right. I took a sip of water every other 30-second cycle of walking.
During the last half mile, I was blessed with some unexpected shade. The sun went behind a big cloud, and I had shade for the rest of my run. Just as I was finishing the run, the sun came out from behind the cloud.
