!!!...GO SPURS GO...!!!

Going to see the Spurs play tonight :-) It should be an exciting game. I expect the Spurs to really jump on the Thunder tonight..!!!

Today was the 3rd Interval training on the RLRF program. The weather is getting more and more brutal. It was 77 degrees when I started at 6:00 am with 65% humidity (the humidity seemed higher, it was very overcast). This workout was hard and I wanted to stop after my first Inverval but I thought of Rye running the same thing so I just pushed through it. If it weren't for the effort in breathing I would really like these intervals. It just hurts to breath when I get going this hard. I need a way to expand my lungs! My legs don't have a problem with this type workout.

I compared my results with the identical workout last November (BTW, the temperature then was 72 degrees. I think it's always hot here in Texas). My accumulative time was 9 seconds faster and my HR was 3 BPM less.

I kicked a dog today!

While running my 4th mile today, a mid-sized dog ran out and tried to bite me. I took a full running kick at him and he landed about 10 feet away...yapping I might add! The only problem is that it hurt my hip a little. Stupid dog!

3rd week on the RLRF program and I think I'm making good progress. All my training times are slightly better than the last training session and my HR is running slightly lower even though the weather is much hotter than before.

I'm excited that Rye is keeping up with the training. He's actually doing better than me because I've really not cross-trained properly. This will probably catch up with me if I don't get going with it soon.

Here's the full report. This was a huge improvement over my 3rd week 17 mile run, on my last (Cowtown) training session. I have a 20 second per mile improvement along with a 9 bpm HR improvement with the temperature 23 degrees hotter (it was 42 degrees during the Cowtown training run). Ran 1 extra mile.
