Houston '11 Week 4 and the Houston Half Marathon

I'm a little late, but here's my fourth week of training for Houston '11:

73 miles for the week (October 18th to 24th)

M: 6¼ at 8:36 mpm, 74ºF at 4AM
Tu: 9½ at 6:58 mpm, 72ºF at 4AM
W AM: 6¾ at 7:23 mpm, 70ºF at 4AM
W PM: 8 at an average 6:59 progression run from 7:19 to 6:38, 77ºF at 8PM
Th: 6¼ at 8:32 mpm, 69ºF at 4AM
F: 12½ at 8:22 mpm, 81ºF at 11AM
Sa: 7 at 8:55 mpm, 81ºF at 4PM
Su: 16¾ with a half-marathon at 6:52 mpm, Hobby Airport had 71ºF to 75ºF from 7AM with the dewpoint at 69ºF to 71ºF....It was 78ºF in Clute.

The half marathon was craptastic. I have to admit I partially torpedoed it, running the full scheduled runs on Friday and Saturday. I knew the forecast was warm and humid, so I lost interest in pushing this race. But I wasn't expecting to not even be able to maintain marathon pace. Very disappointing.
