Holy hot batman!

I started helping a friend meet some goals today.  I went out to her house in the country for a short workout and then ran home.  This gave me about 5 miles.  I thought I can't be a hypocrite so I have to run home.  Wow, was it h.o.t!  I left my comfort zone on this one.  I usually avoid heat all together, especially when it tops 90 degrees.  I was very thankful for the SSE wind - it really helped to cool me and dry some of the sweat.  I downed 20 oz of fluid in these few miles.  Good thing as I had about a 9:15 pace going.  It really felt great to let loose and run.  The heat did get to me, but I really think it was mental more than physical.  I'll keep working on my discomfort zone.

Weather: partly cloudy, 12mph SSE winds
