79F, 79%.  7:44 AP.  Felt ok, given the warmth this morning and the 4 IPAs last night.  Hung out with the 8-minute guy for awhile, then dropped him... punk.

Next Sunday....13 miles!  Really going out on a limb with my training.

AM:  79F, 79%.  6 @ 8:28 AP.  

PM:  4 on the TM, with some pitiful 1 min on/offs @ HMP.  Due for a workout, but have been running kinda cruddy the last week to 10 days.  Will probably do something conservative, bide my time until cooler weather and keep the mileage up.

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.

AM:  76F, 69%.  8 @ 7:45 AP.  Happiness is a clean, fresh buttsweat towel waiting for you in your car when you get done running.

PM:  4 TM miles with 5 or 6 x 1-minute efforts @ 5k pace.

AM:  went with the TM for this workout.  4 x (4 x 90s on / 60s off).  On's were 10.2/10.4/10.6/10.8 mph for the 4 sets (last individual rep @ 11.0) and off's were @ 6.7.  So kinda like 16 x 400 @ 5k pace, but I took 2 minutes easy between each set of 4.  Worked out to about 4.2 miles of "on's" at a 5:42 avg.  Not that hard, but gave the legs some good turnover.  All in all, 8.3 miles in 58:xx min.  Hopefully I don't have too many more TM workouts to suffer through.  In the forecast, I see some lows of 74 in about a week which would be nice.

PM:  TM warrior today....4 more.
