It was Hazy Hot and Humid. Even though I did my run at night it was still hot and humid. After talking to some of the faster guys at the last Browning Ross Race I decided to try their suggestion. They told me to go all out on the first mile and then if I had to slow down the last few miles and they “Guaranteed” a faster time.
So how did I do? Well I clocked a first mile of 8:28 wow that is fast for me. 2nd miles was 9:10, 3rd was 9:37, 4th was 9:55 and last .15 was 1:21 for a total of (yeah I know you can add but I try to make it easy for ya) 4.15 miles in 38:30 for a pace of 9:18. I am very happy with my speed and will be very happy when I can get some longer runs in. I think being off the treadmill has helped with me getting faster.
Hot again, but a storm came through earlier so cooled off a little. I went for a bike ride. I am no great biker by any means, but I set a goal to go 10 miles and to end with a sub 4 minute pace. Please keep in mind I am riding on a bike path but with a mountain bike with fat tires. Some day soon I hope to have a better street bike (you know of any for sale?) and can see how fast I can really go.
Won’t bore you with the details of every mile but the bottom line is I did get 10.75 miles with a 3:53 pace.
Was hoping to get out this morning for a run but just didn’t do it. So will get out later.
