Temp was only in the 70's, but it was sunny, and humidity was close to 100%. Also started out with a tailwind so I wasn't getting any airflow to help stay cool.

Still, made pretty good time, heading up the path from Edgewood. Got all the way to Glacial Park ( 2 miles north of Ringwood! ). Not much further and I would have hit the IL/WI border. Heh.

Turned around, and then dealt with a stronger headwind (15-20mph!) all the way back home.

Got pretty hot towards the end, and was having trouble keeping myself cool. Didn't have quite enough water, so I couldn't dump it over my head, as I needed it to drink! Stopped a few time just to cool down ( and refill water bottles at drinking fountains ).

The last mile/cooldown hurt. I was overheated, out of water. Should have stashed an extra hand bottle on this part on my way out. Next time, I will definitely do that. Ran/walked the last 10 min ( cooldown anyway ), so that I didn't overheat/dehydrate too badly. Made it home, collapsed on the grass for a few minutes to gather myself.

Then, Gu Brew ( ice cold water, sooo good ). Follow that with an ice bath, shower, and the donning of the compression socks. :)

Now, some organic black bean soup ( good post-run refueling! ). Relax for a bit, then heading over to LTF for a little post-run massage action.

After that, Chipotle for dinner, and the nightly Tour de Crash viewing with Whizzzzz! :D

Roadie today. In honor of Le Tour. :)

Garmin Autopause is really fubared. I have the speed/cadence sensor on the bike, and it still can't figure out when I'm moving and when I'm not. It kept running when I stopped, and paused while I was riding. Annoying.

Nice warm day out there. Good weather!
