Tempo Tuesday... or at least a poor attempt. It was 80 F when I walked outside just after 5 a.m. I knew today would be hard. Temps this summer have been pretty mild and I'm just not use to running in hotter conditions. Durning the 3 mile warm up I was sweaty and kind of just wanted to bag doing tempo. But the warm up came and went and next thing I knew we were underway.
5:44 first mile. Still finishing off the conversation and getting into it.
at mile 3.5 I started gagging and also didn't know if the guys were still coming. So I stopped and waited. While catching my breath. Soon after Logan came up the trail and I jumped back in with him. Hit the last 1.5 miles at like a 5:45 avg. Just couldn't get going again.
I don't know what to think about this effort. Not good by any means. But better than sleeping in like I was tempted to do. Still really having a hard time getting the body to want to go back into "race" gear. I'd struggle to race a half right now... So is the DesNews half in a few weeks a good idea? Hmm...
5.1 miles on the treadmill this afternoon. Way too hot outside.. 107F! ):
