AM- 60º Cooler mornings arrived just in time. Ran 'the classic' today. 10 mile warm up follow by 6x3 min intervals w/ 2 min active recoveries. It has been awhile since I ran these and I could feel it. Heading to a busy day at work and my legs are already letting me know they hate me. I am not sure the occasion, but instead of the normal one or two old people out walking their dogs, I must have seen 8-10. I thought about grabbing one, but they probably would have shown me up during the run.

AM- 75º Humidity down Rhett! Down to 82%. So it took a full mile before I was drenched in sweat lol Eh its all good. Sometimes I think I need someone to cut off my shirt when I am done. Good deal. Much cooler weather coming in tonight :)

Another hot/wet day, but cooler weather in a few days! 72º/95% Easy run with soaked clothes. Eclipse was fun, had glasses for the fam. Neat to be a part of it. We had 90% coverage and just neat to see.
