AM: 16 miles progression. Last 5 5:55,5:54,5:45,5:49,5:30. Uphill at the end but even so I felt sluggish. Probably due to ramping upmy mileage agressively this week.

PM: standard core routine, foam rolling then 1 hr. Pool run

EXTREMELY humid this morning at 76 degrees with a 74 dew point at 6:50 am. Rainforest like conditions, simply gross to be outside and it was getting on my nerves since my legs were already pretty tired. Just went slow

AM: 3 WU 2x(1600,800) 2.5 CD

PM: 5 miles slow. felt dead. rainforest conditions as it had just rained and it was very humid

Nothing too fast, nothing too slow. Just putting in a workout at a decent effort without blasting anything. Pretty much how all workouts are/should be during marathon training. 5:08,2:25,4:57,2:23

Oh, and by the way, this is the type of weather I'm working with to get my 100 mile weeks in. Tired of it already

AM: 12 easy to moderate + stretch, foam rolling

PM: 5 miles + light core. extremely hot

72 with 71 dew point this morning (about 90-95% humidity). Took a bottle of water with me and took a big swig after each mile starting two miles in. Even doing that I became dehydrated and was very thirsty afterwards. Just covered in sweat. My shoes were soaked. 

I'm choosing my training log to complain about the heat/humidity rather than facebook. As far as being able to even get any decent running in, I may be out of luck: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2017/07/19/intense-extended-heat-wave-to-last-through-monday/?utm_term=.e49da31c9a61

Very humid once againthis morning. 97 degrees on the run home with a heat index over 105. If it wasn't for a stiff breeze I would have cooked. I've run in worse conditions since the humidity has been much higher at a lower temp but this may be close to the hottest temperature wise.

PM: 5 easy home + standard core routine. 

84 degrees today t 5:45 am. Real feel was 95. Strangely it did not feel that bad, like I may be adapting to the insane heat/humidity. I'm guessing highs of 85 and lows of 65 next week will feel down right chilly. 95 degrees on the way home
