Ridiculous Tempo Run

God I'm sick of this 100% humidity crap - and I'm also sick of running in the morning.  I wasn't looking forward to this one - and for good reason.  The goal was a 7 miles at tempo pace - I was targeting 7:40s - which would put me toward the end of my tempo scale.  I started 7:42, but then did 7:56, 7:54, 7:52 - then picked it up for 7:33, 7:36 and 7:36.  The average for that mess was probably 7:44 or 7:45 - but since I didn't start/end exactly on the mile it could be a little more/less.  Anyway - a little slow - certainly miserable.  I wouldn't have thought that running that slow could be that hard - but I'll blame it on the humidity.  Hopefully this weather breaks before my long run Friday.
