79F, 63%. Not a good effort today. I went down to the track for a 4 x 1600, 400m recovery. Normally I can do these around 10k pace and my goal 10K would have me doing them in about 6:05. Well, at almost 80 degrees I thought 6:15 would be pretty good, maybe 6:20. The first one was 6:22 (barely HM pace) and I was completey smoked. Jogged the recovery lap, which didn't recover me at all, and started on the next one. I made it to about 200m and bailed on the workout. It was not going well at all. This is where a training partner would help - it sure was easy to quit today, and I could have benefitted from sticking it out even with some slower splits. On the other hand maybe it means I needed the rest, although I've been just jogging around all week anyway. Cooler weather is on its way, so I'm not worried about the 10k, just wish I could have sharpened up for it a little better.
I took the long way home for my jog of shame and did some sprints along the way.
