AM- 80 deg and 80% humidity when I started my morning run, and it was only getting hotter. No wind for the first half of the run, with major internal overheating. It was probably the most I have ever sweated in my life. Ran out to Cape Canaveral pier. By the time I got there, I was really hurting and crawling along at 8:30 pace. I took off my shirt, wrung out about 12 oz of water (I don't know how a tech shirt could hold that much sweat- I thought they weren't supposed to), and tied the shirt around my waist. After a big drink and wetting my head, I started the run back. But, I slowly began to accept the beast. Then I eventually embraced the beast. My run went much better after that- I was even able to run some sub-7:00 pace. 15 miles, 1:51:40. The heat index when I finished said it felt like 96 deg.
Embrace the beast.
PM- 6 more at 7 min pace. I brought 4 tech shirts, 4 socks, 3 shoes, and 3 shirts to Florida. I have discovered that, despite my best efforts to hang them up all over the hotel furniture, they do not dry between my runs. Needless to say, it is a very enjoyable experience to put on the already wet clothes for each run, and my hotel room could probably be used as a gas chamber for executions. I'm surprised the hotel maids even try to go in anymore.
