It has been raining almost nonstop for the last couple of days. While it has stayed cool, the humidity has been high. I am so ready for the rain to be gone already. Unfortunately, there is rain in the forecast all the way till next weekend, though after this weekend, there is a smaller chance of rain. I am hoping it isnt raining too bad this weekend. I am supposed to run around 2.5 hours or so on Saturday and Sunday I need to get to the lake to get in an OWS and get my wetsuit on.
With the way our weather has been here in Atlanta, I have been really curious how the weather will be for Augusta. Looking at the weather forecasts, Augusta generally runs about 5-10 degrees warmer then Atlanta. Weather.com only forecasts out 10 days, so it will be interesting to see what they say tomorrow. So I decided to see how far out Accuweather forecasts. Sure enough, they forecast out 15 days. My jaw dropped when I saw the forecast

I really hope they are wrong or conditions change by then, because that is really going to make Augusta a tough race. Definitely will have to adjust my nutrition and pay extra attention to hydration and electrolytes with that kind of humidity.
I am not going to worry too much about that which I cannot control. I just have to monitor the forecast through the next week and plan accordingly.
Did another 30 minute run tonight. My legs are feeling better. Still have just a little bit of back pain. I hope to be close to 100% by Saturday's long run
