Week Five Already.

Tuesday - 75o and sauna-like, with the alternative of 95+ in the afternoon, so I accept. Seven miles @ 9:03.

Wednesday - Intervals. This week I did a 1600 ladder (400-800-1200-1600-1200-800-400) on the streets. With the morning runs I don't want to take the extra effort to go to the track. This keeps my warm up/cool down shorter since the two closest tracks are almost two miles away. Another soaker (not rain, just humid). Happy enough with the paces, though. 7:06 for the 400s, 7:09 & 7:12 for the 800s, 7:28 & 7:22 for the 1200s, and 7:21 for the 1600.

Thursday - Six humid miles @ 9:03.

Friday - Six miles @ 8:51, with 3-6 closer to 8:30. Guess that means I recovered on Thursday.

Saturday - Didn't do any pace miles last Saturday since I felt like crap, I wanted to get some this week. Four of them in the middle of 8. 8:22, 8:26, 8:13, 7:58. The plan was to make them all even paced, but decided to let the last one go wherever. That turned out to be a bad idea because I was whipped for the last two after pushing it under 8:00 on number 4. Dope.

Monday - Thought I was in heaven. The humidity dropped yesterday and it was under 60 degrees. Five tempo miles - 8:21, 8:21, 8:12, 8:10, 7:54. Felt amazing.

Met with the dermatologist between the run and work. This was a second six month followup after having some basal cells removed last summer. Nothing to report, so I'm cleared for a year now.

Your Monday run already illustrates the benefits of training in the heat and humidity - come fall, paces will really drop!
