Morning: Ran along the North Branch trail as a warmup to my track workout. It was 70 and humid when I started, so the river trail offered a lot of shade before I hit the mostly unprotected-from-the-sun track. Spotted an elite runner walking on the trail. He was probably smart: Cooling down just having done his daily 20+ miler before the sun rose. Anyway, here are my stats:
4 mile warm-up
1 mile @ 6:19 (.25 walk)
1 mile @ 6:13 (.25 walk)
1 mile @ 5:53 (.25 walk)
2.5 mile cool down.
Analysis: My goal was to average 6:09/mile at the track for my 3 speed training miles. I averaged 6:08. Not bad, almost perfect.
Side note: 83 degrees at the end of my workout. Isn't September supposed to be cooler than August?!
Evening 4.3 miles around Welles Park. 98 degrees. :-(
Miles so far this week: 58.3 out of 70.
