HUMID but new shoes

Last night I bought new running shoes - $150!!! That was the sole motivation for goin gout this morning. The dew point was 74. I did the strides like I did Monday, all 8 in the 2nd mile. And quit at the 4 mile mark. Walked home, drenched. My VDOT went up to 41 and my fitness age dropped to 43. Still useful training, but just barely. Average pace is embarrassing.
