A good week running

Three good runs this week.  Monday brought I downladder: 1600, 1200, 800 and 400.  I think I did about 6:30s or 6:40s.  They felt good.  I did a 2 mile 'tempo' on Wednesday - probably about 7:15s - I usually don't do tempos - my least favorite run - but this again felt pretty damn good.  Today I did 8.2 miles into work.  3 runs - 3 great workouts.  Picture above is of a Cambridge boat house along the Charles.

Cooling Off

I can't put a pick in?!??  Oh well.  Manged a good interval session Monday: 3x1200.  Off track on a nice day.  Crappy run on Wednesday - felt sluggish and slow.  Felt much better running in today - kept it short at 8 miles.  had a few miles of pick-up.  4 interval sessions so far, and 6 long runs.

Hot Hot Heat

This week was a holiday shortened week - but no worries - I made it out Monday morning of Labor day and did the old loop of Haley Farm and Bluff Point.  It was super humid out and we went unbelievably slow - but ended up a 5.8 miles.  Wednesday was better.  I did two interval pickups of one mile each.  Probably in the 6:30-6:40 range.  The first one felt good, the second one felt really hard.  Finally, I ran into work on Friday - doing an extra loop at Fresh Pond to give me 9.8 miles - and 20 total for the week. I hit all the runs - but the strength and biking took major hits.  Hopefully I can bring those back into the fold next week - and hopefully the weather will dry out a little.
