Finished the week with a medium run

I wasn't able to go out running until late afternoon, about 5 pm. I completed my medium run of 1 hour 40 minutes, although I was tired and only did 4.75 miles instead of the expected 5 miles. Because I was running in the late afternoon, it wasn't as hot as it was on Thursday. In addition, there was a 8-10 mph headwind on the way back, and that helped cool me down. Also, during the last mile, the sun was low enough in the sky to be behind clouds, and I ran/walked that mile in shade. I was tired, because I spent three hours on my feet during the morning helping a neighbor spray his yard for weeds.
