I was off yesterday because I was feeling a little under the weather, especially Wednesday night. Today, I feel great. I headed out for a decent pace 6 miler and loved the heat from the first step. I ran about 49 minutes, paced at around 8:10/mile. Today is one of those early summer days when it's like 80 and a little humid, but you aren't used to it. It feels thick. In the middle of the summer, you hope for days like this, because of the extreme July and August heat. Either way, I love it.
One noticeable key to my run today was a lessening of the left hamstring awareness. It wasn't totally gone, but I definitely feel less today. I am not sure if that is improvement or simply a good day, or maybe just the hot weather loosening me up more than normal. Whatever it is, I am glad.
