Crazy For Dew

This is my office window, pre-sunrise, on what will be a sunny day.  That's not rain.  THAT'S CONDENSATION.  It was left from ridiculous humidity and high dew point in downtown Kansas City!!!  About an hour earlier I finished my weekly tempo run in this mess.  It went fine.  I'm the amphibian.

80 degrees, 92% humidity
All in all it was a good workout with a shorter version of a tempo run.  It was 4 consecutive miles at 6:33.  In spite of the conditions, I seemed to manage the pace fairly easily - which makes me optimistic about this weekend's back-to-back 10K followed by a 5K.  Hopefully the humidity drops, but it's doubtful.  We may be swimming to the finish line.  Have a great weekend!
... be great today!


  1. Sweaty workouts for you! We are having a very warm winter so far. Our winters are dry and currently there are fires everywhere. I think we have close to 0% humidity at the moment.

  2. I think running in all that humidity is probably like altitude training! Less oxygen available.

  3. It's not the heat that does you in - it's the humidity. I'm so glad it's winter here at the moment. Not a big fan of summer.
