94% humidity and a dew point of 68!  It was GROSS, and of course I had hill repeats today....

2 mile warm up....
8x200 M VERY steep hill sprints with jog downs
3.6 nasty miles right at 7:00 pace

Great job!  I can't imagine hill repeats in this soup.  :shocker!:

I was really glad to hear Coach mention how awful the humidity was.  It was my first run outside since Friday's epic adventure and it really sucked.  I kept thinking I was just not mentally strong enough today.  It was so hard.  :wtf:  Here I ran 50 a few days ago and I struggled through 5 today.  :wtf:  Running is strange like that.  :meh:  5.2 totally soaked and sucktacular miles.  : pbbt:

Running really is strange isn’t it?! Great job getting through it in this nastiness!!

ok a few things
1) Memory foam in shoes .. dumb... aka I remember to be always squished at the pressure points (I have a pair of Reeboks I tested out this morning)
2) I need to rethink this going to the gym thing.. hard to get psyched for the run portion, and man did my sciatic rebel at the first stride  ..
3) it's getting much darker in the morning

1.5 to the gym.. best guest .5 20' elevation loss, followed by .5 50' elevation gain.. finish with .5 at a minimal grade .. and of since it's a shorter run it must be done at a pace faster than I normally run
aka  must beat little virtual guy .. criminy am I gassed by the time I finish :meh:

net net 1.5 there, 1.5 back .. chest, biceps, triceps in between.

Peace

Very nice!

That little virtual guy can be a real sob :-)
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-01 11:39 AM
Great job beating the virtual guy.  :cool:  I hope the shoes work out or get returned for a pair that will. 

I have noticed that too with the later sunrise.  :sad:

my problem is getting out the door .. knowing that man this is really gonna suck in about 10 minutes:mischief:
and too often it becomes skip the gym and the time trial ... gotta get my mental toughness in order but
combine that with keep it fun . fatty :blush:
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-01 5:10 PM
Yeah, I pretty much don’t do hard runs anymore. :blush:  And I’ve started and quit doing core and strength stuff so many times it’s downright embarrassing. :blush::blush:

I don’t have the virtual guy but my “thing” is finish strong. Which somehow translates to the last mile must be the fastest of the whole run. :roll::laugh:

Keep working on that mental toughness. Maybe try channeling your inner Xena?

ok going to try Supernova's (worn in the past and really liked)
should be here for the weekend

Peace
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-01 5:12 PM
Let me know how those work out. I used to wear Supernovas in the past as well. My Adidas place is an outlet mall and it hasn’t carried the Supernovas in a very long time.

I got an hour of paddling in this afternoon. It was a little choppy on the lake so it was a little more workout than a clear glass lake day but any day I get on the lake is a good day. :happy:

5.1 on the treadmill tonight. Effort level was still higher than the pace would warrant. My resting HR is also about 10 beats higher than the low and 5 higher than it normally fluctuates so I’m going to assume I’m not recovered from the 50k/50 miler extravaganza and try not to beat myself up more than I already am. :wink:
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-08-02 7:05 AM
That would make a ton of sense as well as the humidity etc....sounds like a good day to me!

:sad::hug:

Underfueled?
Parent - - By flyguy (Stump Grinder) [us] Date 2018-08-02 5:02 AM
I don't think so, I had just eaten lunch.
Was a little warm but not horrible.

Legs just HURT and finally stopped working.
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2018-08-02 5:06 AM
:sad: Hopefully it’s just a random weird bad day. :hug:
Parent - By flyguy (Stump Grinder) [us] Date 2018-08-02 5:07 AM
Hope so :hug::grin:
Parent - By NYCoach [us] Date 2018-08-02 7:05 AM
