Summer finally decided to hit Metro Detroit this week, which basically means bring on the heat and humidity and ditch the tank top. Humidity is a killer for me. The heat isn’t as bad, but still it slows me down a bit and causes some overheating. Here’s what the week looked like (plan/actual):
Monday – 3 Easy @ 10-10:30 pace/5 miles of hills at Kensington w/ Rick in 49:12 (9:50 pace)
Tuesday – 30 Minute Tempo @ 7:45-8:15 pace/30 Minute Tempo w/ middle 10 minutes (1.24 mi) at 8:02 pace
Wednesday – 3 Easy @ 10-10:30 pace/3 Easy with Brian @10:19 pace
Thursday – 4x800m repeats (3:50 target) w/ 400m recovery/4x800m w/ 400m recovery (3:39.5, 3:46.4, 3:49.0, 3:57.0)
Saturday – 6 Mile Pace Run @ 8:15-8:45 pace/6 Miles in 51:29 (8:34 pace)
Sunday – 12 LSD @ 10-10:30 pace/12 LSD in 2:04:06 (10:20 pace)
I’m a huge fan of podcasts as of late and I love how they all seem to end with listener questions followed by some version of naming something you love, something you hate or something you learned. So, submit a question if you’d like and I’ll answer one or two each blog. And for this week:
Something I love – The badass feeling of running in shorty shorts and a tank top. It makes me feel fast.
Something I hate – Sweat dripping in my eyes. . . OUCH!
Something I learned – My stomach sweats. . . ALOT!
