I was able to get out for a quick 4 mile run in the full afternoon sun today. I only had about 35 minutes to run so I went out quick and finished in about 30:36 seconds for the 4 miles. A pace of about 7:36/mile. The sun is in full effect and today was a good step towards heat acclimation for the run next month. It is hot, it felt hot, and it sapped me of a lot of strength. It is also a good reminder for me to make sure the food and drink I am taking in will support me through my workouts in this heat.
Today's weather forecast at run time:
UV index 8 (very high)
