Sunday- 8 miles- 1 w up, 10K-40:49, 1 c dn
Wow, getting used to humidity bites! Dry heat is definitely different. It felt like I was running with a coat on. I was feeling unmotivated and ended up at the track by default but it turned into a good workout.
I ran a 6:44 first mile (to much shock and disappointment that it felt hard to run that pace(, then I settled in at what felt like a moderately comfortable pace and ran the next 5 miles each within one second of 6:30pace. I then pushed the 25th lap (86) to get it in under 41minutes. The constant feedback of the track was great, and the soccer players and other runners offered much entertainment. But, I almost missed my Sinai 1520m loop.
I still feel off, and hope it comes around soon. Going off to do some hills today.
