@ 10k pace. A great threshold workout. I attempted to keep splits but was off an on with hitting the split accurately. However, it was a good workout since George was monitoring. I noticed that I was not really tired until much later in the workout compared to last year. Averaged 75.8 per lap for the workout, something around 5:03-05 pace

AM: 1 hr. 41 min. pool run.

PM: 9 easy. very hot tonight, 96 degrees which made it feel like shit outside

Stayed in the pool a little longer which it turns out is the longest I've ever pool ran. Good thing Jill and Skylar were there otherwise pool running alone is pretty boring.

Very humid this morning, dewpoint was 74 and the temp was 78 at 6:00 am. You'd think it be a little cooler since we're well into September, but I guess not.
