Nice little article about the effects of heat and humidity from Gina Kolata in the New York Times yesterday. It mentions the Mini 10K I ran in last month, specifically how the conditions conspired to bring the finishing times to their lowest in 10 years. I feel somewhat vindicated now.
The forecast for this weekend is typical July in New York: oppressive steamroom with thunderstorms. I’m off to do a tempo run on the treadmill this morning, the first of many runs I’ll do inside in the coming days.
