Deuteronomy 5:32-33

32 So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. 33 Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess.

Another track day on the RLRF program. I think I was too excited to start out with and ran my warm-up and my first 1000 too fast. I throttled back on the other three to bring them into the training range. I was pretty beat at the end so I took my cool-down pretty slow. My legs were still tired from my bike ride yesterday. I also forgot my HR monitor so I have no idea what my HR was on these repeats.

Tempo Run today. My goal was to run the exact same route I ran on my previous RLRF training for Cowtown and compare the results. The weather was much cooler then (40 degrees) compared to 72 today. My Cowtown run was 4 Miles @ 6:51 - HR 159. I think I can determine there is improvement even though my HR is up slightly on this run. I'm sure the heat and humidity took a little out of me today too.

Psalm 119:33-40

 33-40 God, teach me lessons for living
      so I can stay the course.
   Give me insight so I can do what you tell me—
      my whole life one long, obedient response.
   Guide me down the road of your commandments;
      I love traveling this freeway!
   Give me a bent for your words of wisdom,
      and not for piling up loot.
   Divert my eyes from toys and trinkets,
      invigorate me on the pilgrim way.
   Affirm your promises to me—
      promises made to all who fear you.
   Deflect the harsh words of my critics—
      but what you say is always so good.
   See how hungry I am for your counsel;
      preserve my life through your righteous ways!

I really wish I could keep my HR under 155 on a run like this. Last week I kept it below 155 for 13 miles while averaging an 8:00 pace. This week I was more like 8:20 and my HR jumped to 160 at mile 11. Above 155 I'm in the Threshold Zone.
