AM1: 78F, 68%. 10 mi total. A tad warm, but DP was very reasonable, about 67. I knew I wouldn't be setting any world records today though; just haven't been feeling it lately. However, it was time for a workout, so I went to the track for a 5 x 1600, 1 lap active rec. No expectations of pace, just get in the effort. I averaged 6:16 (6:16, 6:16, 6:13, 6:22 whoops, 6:14). Recovery laps were a bit quicker than usual, around 2:00 avg. Physiologically, it did the trick, got the lactic acid bubbling. Normally I'd consider a cutback week after a bunch of dumpy-feeling runs, but this little skid has coincided with a heat wave so I'm not completely sure it's my fault. In fact let's blame it on the heat for now. Yes, everything is just fine.
AM2: back at it, 4 hrs later. 4 on the mill with strides.
