Took a 45 minute break after run before running the Prathersville Loop.
Prathersville Loop, 12.4 mi, 1:44:34, 8:26/mi
This was a really hot run with a temp around 85F. Tried to run at a comfortable pace and felt strong although pace would have been better if it was cooler. Even with the water I drank every 3 miles I lost 5 lbs.
Sun- Rest – Volunteered for the Columbia Half Marathon Challenge and didn’t get done until after noon. Went home and napped, woke up at 4:30, 87 F outside and finished mowing the yard. I think I needed the rest today worse than a run.
Some fast runs this taper week. Three runs planned this coming week before Baltimore on Saturday. Currently only a 30% chance of rain on Sat. with a low of 53F Friday night and a high of 68F on Saturday. Sounds perfect and more like October.
