The weather continues to be in the triple digits and cools down to the high 80's. I love the warm weather but come September and October, I'm tired of it. I'm waiting for the cool mornings and evenings, even if it still hits 100 during the day. This week Wed and Thursday are in the mid 90s but otherwise the temps are still in the 100's. It doesn't look like the break in weather will happen this week.
Monday- Tempo run. John ran with me and was a little surprised when I took off. I hadn't shared the goal of the mornings run and he thought it was my usual shuffle. My goal was 7:45's and while the pace slipped, I feel good about the run and overall pacing. Warmup mile then 7:49, 7:45,7:53,7:59,8:09
Tuesday- Track was a ladder going down. I'm feeling more comfortable to not run with the group in order to shorten my recovery times. The downside is that I'm running alone rather than with someone who may be a similar or faster pace than me.
1600m - 7:23
1200m - 5:25
800m - 3:31
200m -46 sec
200m - 46 sec
Wednesday- Core work
Thursday- goal run- Ran 6 miles but couldn't get the pace down. This is surprising considering on Monday I was running faster.
Friday - Off
Saturday- 14 mile long run. Went well and I didn't worry about pace. Felt strong still at the end.
Sunday- Off from running. Went out on the boat and worked on upper body strength hanging onto the inter tube.
Total Miles 31
