Brutal 12 miles in and around the park on a blazing sun drenched day, near 90 degrees away from the shades. It felt cooler around my place, closer to the lake and 3 miles from the park, there seems to be about a 10 degree difference between those 3 miles. The pace wasn’t particularly fast, but it didn’t have to be today for a tough workout. Finishing the 3rd 2 mile loop in the park, on the way to mile 9, was the toughest, the sun relentless. Am home now hydrating like crazy.
