Back in the USA and behind on my running. Apparently we had a cool front blow through over the weekend while I was gone. We recieved 2 inches of much needed rain. This morning was much more plesent than when I left last week. It actually felt good!

Track Interval Training @ 400's. I like this workout but it seems too easy. I'm thinking it's supposed to be easy since I am supposed to have a 20 miler later this week. I'm not sure how I'm going to get all my running in for the next two weeks as I am going to be traveling many of the days. I may have to condence my workouts and just do what I can.

These Intervals are a little faster than scheduled but they felt comfortable so I just ran at that pace. (Target was 1:27)

Today was supposed to be a cross-training day or a rest day but I couldn't resist the low Dew Point and decided to go out and Just Run. It turned out to be a "Fast Finish Something??? Run". I just ran as I felt like running.

The dew point was 55, temp 66 and humidity 72%. This is much better conditions than I've got to run in for quit a while! WoooHooo...

The 4th mile (100' rise) was slow because of the hill and the last mile (60' rise) was fast because of the effort.

Short Tempo Run today. The nasty weather is back. I'm glad I wasn't running a long run today as the Temperature was 75 with a Dewpoint of 72 and 88% Humidity and Foggy.

I am 9 weeks out from my marathon and still hoping for some cooler weather to train in. I lost 3 pounds on the short run. I was sweating like crazy! I had big plans to run 4 tempo miles when I started but after two I knew I couldn't do it. I ran the flattest part of my route, the first half is slightly downhill, the second is slightly uphill. (total elevation gain is about 200')

Comparing this to the last time I ran the same run I ran it 8 seconds per mile faster but my HR was 8 BPM faster Avg. The temperature was only 35 degrees last time I ran this tempo run. I did push my HR to 182, pretty much the highest I've ever gotten it.

Ran 10 miles @ 9:00 pace LHR run @ 130-135. I hate these runs as I feel more sore after this than a 10 mile tempo.

Went to the Boots n Saddles Cowboy Church roping today and won 1st and 6th. I won a saddle and several other prizes including a really nice leather bound bible. Trying to post a picture but I can't get this ASUS pad to work with me.

Off to West Palm Beach FL for four days and then off to Chattanuga TN for a couple of days. Won't be back home until late friday so my running is probably going to be all TM miles. I'm getting worried that I haven't done any long runs lately and probably won't have time for one on this trip. Hoping the weather is cooler when i get back home. Maybe I can do a 20 miler on Saturdy.
