The weather is finally starting to resemble an Ohio summer. These mild temperatures have made it too easy to run, and I can't be having that as I train for the Akron Marathon.
Sunday, I met a friend for a 12-miler during the hottest part of the day. We managed to finish with a solid 9:30 pace, but notched a positive split second half while we ran more unshaded portions of the Towpath. After the run, my arms were warm from a little too much sun exposure.
The forecast all this week calls for high 70s to low 80s and a few thunderstorms, which should mean some humidity at last.
I was worried this training was getting too easy. Looking forward to that 20-miler this coming Sunday.
