PM: 1 hr. pool run

Getting hot out. Weighed myself this morning for the first timein months. I suspected I was much heavier than racing weight as I've been running like ass since Cherry Blossom when I was a little leaner. I weigh 151, which is about 5 pounds heavier than race weight. My metabolism is slowing down as I'm getting older and I can't drink/eat like I used to without facing the consequences.

Was going to do repeat miles but George took it down to 800s due to the extreme humidity/heat. I actually felt good and wanted to do 8 of them but at 6 he said that was it and I ended up finishing pretty fast in 2:17. The recoveries were quite long as the group was lollygagging but George said not to worry as it was so hot it didn't matter. Very hot/humid for the evening run. It was one of those days when you shiver when you walk outside. It was 90 degrees with a 73 dewpoint at 5:30. Felt like ass out there. It's going to be a long summer

Wanted to get a little something in between Tuesday and Sunday. Amazing how much more tired you get with only half the interval time recovery. Racing a hilly and long 5K Sunday but it's for a good cause and it will be great training for my July 4th 5K
