Sunday morning run - 85% humidity

I just got back from my 8.5 mile run.  It is beautiful out, clear sky, no wind - but muggy.  The temperature is only 74 . . .  gorgeous  . . . right . . .  well the humidity is 85% . . .  so it is really MUGGY.  When I got up - no kidding it was 67 and the dew point was 67, which means 100% humidity . . . the air couldn't hold any more moisture.  OK - even though I am married to a meteorologist . . . I just don't get it.  Shouldn't  rain be falling from the sky when the humidity == 100%.  Yikes!!!!

My run went pretty well - I finished at a 9:51 pace and only took a couple of little walking breaks.  I am home for a short stretch - eat a little food and then set off on my bike.  Yesterday I biked 38 miles and today I did plan to do the same route - 35 miles.  For a grand total of 73 over the two days . . . which is still 2 short of what I will do in one day next weekend.  YIKES!!!!!   :-)  This is the last weekend before the MS150 bike ride . . . so these are my last longish rides.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend.


  1. Thanks for commenting on my blog! How did I miss that you are from Mad-Town. I miss WI (yup, I'm a Wisconsinite). You have quite a day planned. Good job on the run. I hope the ride goes well. Let me know if you get an iFitness pouch!

  2. You are doing so well with your training! Impressive! I can't wait to hear about your MS150 ride :)

    No worries...I'm taking the number of rest days suggested by my PT. He said that I can run less long, but more often...up to 6 days a week. So, that's what I'm doing :) Thanks for looking out for me!

  3. Wow that a lot of biking after running. My legs would be jello! Great job!

  4. We are most likely having the same kind of weather you are here in Minnesota! Yes, it sucks! I am so tired of the heat and humidity and can't wait for nicer cooler days:)

    Great job on both your running and biking! I am currently shopping for a bike:) I am looking forward to reading more of your blog!
