73F, 75%.  7:39 AP.  Slow start this morning, had to wake up early to get this in before church.  My legs finally woke up around the 6 or 7 mile point, and I even charged a few hills in the last 5 miles or so.

Heat wave this week should end by Friday and my 20-miler next weekend will be a lot more pleasant.

76F, 62%.  8:47 AP.  But, I brought it home with a sub-8:40 on mile 6.

106 degrees for a high today - someone needs to tell Oklahoma that it's September now.  I do see some nice low numbers on the forecast this next weekend though.  I just need to get in some kind of 10K-sharpening workout in this week.  Maybe Friday.

78F, 65%.  7:46 AP.  Got up really really early....15 miles completed before 6:45am - ouch.  Tried to keep an honest effort, kind of a hot and cranky run.

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.

69F, N 12 mph.  8:18 AP.  Amazing, I went out at 9am and it was still in the 60s.  Looking at mid-50s tomorrow for a 20-miler - finally.  I'm thinking of making it a big workout since I punted the whole week, but don't want to mess with my 10K six days later.  Maybe something moderate at the end.
