Not much fun on this run that is for sure. Speedwork + 95 degrees = not fun. Not sure how you guys down south do it. Decided to go and do a run at 5:15 pm since I wanted to watch the Tour tonight. So headed over and it was windy and I thought that would help to cool things down some. But it just added to the not fun. Goal was 2 miles warm-up 1k @ 3:44 with 400m rest. Then a cooldown mile. Here is how it went. The last 1k I stopped after pushing hard for 400m and found I was on a 6:55 pace ARGH!! Walked a little then finished it.
Mile 1 8:39
Mile 2 9:15 Chatting with another runner
1k 3:47 ri 3:20
2k 3:57 ri 3:38
3k 4:07 ri 3:35
4k 4:09 ri 3:59
5k 1:47 ri 1:36 1:37
cooldown 9:34 I MADE IT!!! Did I mention it was hot out there. Will have to do runs ealier or later in the day. That just wont work. But I did it. I also walked and jogged a little of the RI.
