Working towards Niagara

 With Niagara looming it was time to lace up the new Mizuno Road shoes and take advantage of the warmer more humid conditions.   Headed out with a 5:30 avg pace goal and more or less maintained it through 20K before falling off pace.  Logged a 22.7K run at an avg 5:38 pace with a 300m warm up and 700m cool down for a total of 23.8k today.
 It was 20-24C ,  quite humid with a stiff W SW Breeze.   At times it wasn't too bad but  occasionally the cooling breeze was blocked and I was exposed to the Sun making things really heat up.   Only drank 1.5 bottles of water and didn't consume an calories...I am pretty sure the lack of food caught up with me near the end of the run. 
 Trail tomorrow,  going to try to hit the Bruce in the Walters Falls area.  Want to be on the trail by 6:00 am ...its going to be a hot day.
