72F, 98%.  7:37 AP.  Thick, sticky slog on my normal 15-mile loop, which includes 3-4 miles of dirt (today = mud) roads.  I was going to do a bunch of pickups on the way home but only felt like doing 3 or 4 short ones.  The legs seemed to be stuck in invisible mud (after the real mud got kicked off).  Good enough, I say.

12 weeks out from Tulsa now.  Time to start ratcheting up a bit...within in a couple weeks, this 15-miler will be the normal Wednesday run....eep.

66F, 71%, N 11 mph..  7:22 AP.  You know it's marathon training season when you wake up at 4:30am so that you can get in a 10-mile warmup before a workout.

I ran the last 4 miles hard, at a respectable 6:22 AP (6:35, 6:26, 6:15, 6:11).  Felt great to be able to do that after a summer full of weak/failed tempo runs.  The cool air obviously helped a lot today.

73F, 73%.  7:39 AP.  Easy with some strides and hill sprints at the end.

Looks like a mini heat wave for the next 5 days or so...hitting 104 this weekend..?  Hopefully summer will go away after that.
