Air quality isn't the greatest right now with particle pollution mixing in with the soupy, stagnant air. Made even a short run tough, with the breathing a little more labored than it should be despite everything else feeling perfect.
But at least it was short, and I picked up the pace more to just get it over with. Only did 5K, so no risk of burning the candle at both ends. Decided on a whim to do this run. Already have plans to run tonight with my teammates, but figured I might as well do a double to bank a few more miles.
Really want to hit the track this week, but will likely wait until Thursday when this heat wave is supposed to be over with.
Ran 3.1 miles @ 7:17/mile pace.
Lower 80s, sunny, humid.
