I was in Ft Worth today. We were taking Kirby (my son) to visit TCU University. He must decide between TCU and Baylor before May 1st as to where he is going to college next fall. He has good academic scholarship offers from both schools. My daughter goes to TCU so I was able to visit and run with her this morning. She has not been running consistently so I just mixed my run up to accommodate her run. It was great running on some flat ground!

I haven't run fast for a while so I dropped the pace on mile 4 (while Callie rested). It felt good.

1 Samuel 16:7

But God told Samuel, “Looks aren’t everything. Don’t be impressed with his looks and stature. I’ve already eliminated him. God judges persons differently than humans do. Men and women look at the face; God looks into the heart.”

I felt really good about this run today. When I started out I felt a little tired (body & legs) but halfway through the run I started thinking..."I feel pretty good for running 6-7 miles". I ran an out and back course this time so my 1-10, 2-9, etc. miles were the same just different directions. I was very pleased as I didn't let the hills effect my pace as much as they usually do. Not that I could maintain this for marathon distance but it didn't feel that taxing until the last couple of miles where I pushed to drop the pace/effort (mile 9 is all uphill). If I could just keep my HR around 150 I would be fine. When it gets to 160 I feel like I start to blow up :-(

I believe this is about as good as I have ever run a 10 mile tempo run. I looked back and found one I had done at 7:17 but my HR was 160.

It was 80 degrees and 75% humidity when I ran today (middle of the afternoon).

The goal was t split the run into 3 sections (6@8:00, 6@7:30, 6@8:00) and see how I felt after throwing in those middle faster miles. The run was successful but left me wondering how I would feel with another 6@7:30.

Ran small loop 3X clockwise
Weather Conditions - 80º, 75% Humidity, 14 MPH Wind
Target:
18 miles @ MP+30
Note:
My plan was to run 6 @ 8:30, 6 @ 7:30, 6 @ 8:30. Hit all the paces pretty well. The last 6 miles seemed easier than the first 6.

Psalm 136:4
