first workout of the marathon cycle. Ran most of it before the heat became a problem, humid and soaked with sweat, but well hydrated and cool. Unlike the loop, in which the last 5 miles are slightly downhill with no turns, the 5 mile section above is uphill. It was a good run and Greg ran with me, 5:30s are easy for him. Allergies after were sniffles and itchy eyes but not yet bad enough to really piss me off. I'm praying that this heat wave we are going to get isn't too bad this week.
PM: 45 min. pool run
