Kenyan Way - Long Run - 12 miles (cut back week)

Good run today.

12 miles
10:16 avg pace (and that was me having to actually slow down a lot of the run as we kept finding ourselves running sub 10)...I have to quit doing that  :o)
As usual, 78 deg and 89% humidity, 74 dewpoint.

Was worried due to extremely sore calves and hammys from the hill workout/boot camp on Thursday night, but a lot of water and ibuprofen seemed to help and I only had moderate discomfort, but the weird thing is that while running I didnt notice it too much; only when just walking or standing up and walking after having been immobile for a certain amount of time.

Spent the rest of the day at the hospital with my mom and my sister.  It is what it is.  We've accepted the hand that has been dealt.  Now we just wait...We dont know how long...

Sending well wishes to your mom.

You are in my thoughts!

Sorry to hear about your mom. You're doing well with the training program despite the heat - good going!! Any time the temperature and the dewpoint added together total 150+ is practically dangerous and it is close to that all the time here in Houston in summer!

thanks to you both..

@bert: i wholeheartedly attribute me still being able to maintain some sense of oomph to the fact that I a) kept up my longish mileage through the beginning of the really hot weather, the S!caps and just overall having learned and implemented is a process of making mistakes and correcting i think based on the individual.
