Heat index of over 100...WTH. This freakin' humidity is really getting to me. It sucks the life right outta you. The training schedule called for speedwork today and I was hoping I would get a text from Richard saying he overslept. Instead, he knocked on my door at 6AM sharp, just as planned. Damn. At least I didn't have to suffer alone. We started with a one mile warmup followed by the first mile "sprint", if you can call it that. We followed with a half mile walk only to sprint another mile followed by another half mile recovery walk and a one mile cooldown jog for a total of close to 5 miles. I can't say that I ran the mile sprints fast, but at least I stayed close to 6 minute pace, running just slightly slower. At this point, I just want to be able to maintain my level through the summer, so I can tackle new PRs this fall. It is just too hot and humid for me to even try to break any PRs right now, as was evident in this past weekend's 5K race. I can't wait for our next ultra race 4 weeks from now. I just feel like I do so much better mentally in a race than in training right now. It has to be the weather.
