AM: 2 WU 3 mile tempo, half mile jog, 1 mile faster. 2 CD. Purposefully ran slower to begin with today so that I could finish the whole workout. Nothing fast or special to be sure but good to get through a full workout.  (5:45, 5:37, 5:25) (5:19)

PM: 1 hr. pool run

AM: 8 easy

PM: 5 easy + standard core routine + 10 min. jump rope, stretching

extremely humid, disgusting. Dew point is 75 which is "Extremely uncomfortable, fairly oppressive" and the sweat just kept coming and my shorts just drip. At least if I had to take a piss while running I wouldn't even have to bother to stop.  went old school and did some jump rope. Gotta keep the legs and feet strong.

AM: 3 WU 8x1100m hill circuits 2.5 CD. Each circuit has a fast 500m climb and a 150m fast downhill stride. Alternate core routine + stretching, foam rolling

Last hill session since I'll be racing the next three weekends.  I am skipping the Midsummer night's mile this evening because I felt the hills were better for me and I'm racing a lot in the coming weeks.  Legs really tired after a good workout.

PM: 5 mile recovery slog. slow byt fun since the weather was much less humid today
