Tuesday usually means gym day. But today was an unconventional Tuesday. My daughter's been a little under the weather lately. To make a long story short, instead of getting up early to go to the gym at work, I stayed home to make sure she didn't have a fever and a need to go to the doctor before heading to work. That left my exercise undone, so the plan became an evening run. It was a wet day today, but the evening was gray without much rain so I was hopeful. I did not remain dry however.
Early the weather stayed fine. A couple of drops here or there, but not much. I had some puddles and mud to run around, but otherwise uneventful. I was happy that it wasn't as humid as it could have felt, being on the cusp of rain. I tried to keep a good pace again, hoping to stay close to this past weekend. I felt a little tired early on energy wise, so was worried if I would hold it. At the one mile mark, I was plesantly surprised: pace 13:30! That fueled me to keep pushing. Unfortunately after my 15 minute turn around, the rain decided to say hello. It came down in spurts, none too heavy. It actually felt kind good at times actually. Just enough to keep cool.
