Very humid today, like a rain forest. The last two were uphill but my effort was 5:10 and I ran high 5:20s. Gross

PM: 4 miles easy

really good weather for a change with lower humidity and 62 degrees. I wish July 4 was like this but alas I live in a humid sub-tropical cesspool during the summer months. But today it was actually quite nice so we had a good workout.

6:21,3:43,3:41,3:39,3:37. Recoveries weren't too bad as they were actually less time than the interval.

AM: 2.5 WU 2x600,2x400,2x200

Legs were heavy warming up and I didn't quite feel right. Just didn't have that pop this morning and it was evident from the first rep. I meant to do 3x600,3x400,3-4x200m but had to abandon my plans once I got out there. Legs started going slower than 70 sec pace and I just called it and did 200s. Splits were slow.

I think the accumulated fatigue and the heat are catching up to me and that I need a day off or a few light days. It's been since May 10th that I had a day off

For God's sake:

with dew points in the 70s

PM: off. too tired
