Finally a "real" cross-training day. The only problem is it was 103 degrees when I started. Aslo, I don't like cross-training in the evening before a RLRF run because I don't seem to recover in that short (usually 12 hours). I could tell that my legs weren't used to biking as they seemed to fatigue fairly quickly. Hopefully I can get back into biking a couple of days a week!

Week 6 on the RLRF program and all seems pretty well except for the heat. Even during these Intervals I feel like I get overheated and am just pouring with sweat!

I went and bought me some new shoes yesterday (Saucony ???, I forget the name, I'll add later). I was trying to find some shoes with very little upper padding. My thinking is to get some shoes that won't hold as much sweat. My Saucony Ride 4's have a lot of padding and when they get soaked they are very heavy (this usually happens after about 45 minutes of running). I ran in the new shoes today, I think they are going to be a little better than the Rides.

(Note: Good work-out, hit targets & exceeded slightly)
Notes:
Recoveries were still a little long (3 min.). I was really sweating. I wore my new shoes without socks until the second 800 when a blister started to form.

My legs have been feeling really good so I decided to just throw in a few short miles on my "off" days (in the morning), since I can't seem to find the time to ride my bike in the afternoons.

I think the heat and humidity is getting the best of me. I thought I felt really good for the warm-up and the first mile but then it hit me and I started feeling really drained. I ran most of this run at 90% of my HR which is in my Vo2 max. I may have to start running my Tempo and Long Runs based on HR training zones and not based on time because of this heat. I ran this same run with the same HR effort 15 seconds per mile faster when the temperature was 62 degrees.
