total 4.8 miles:<br>
1.2 mile warm-up<br>
4x800 at sub 7:45 pace with 2 min recovery<br>
1.2 mile cooldown<br><br>
Do you think I did enough repetitions?? the plan called for 6x800 but we got started too late...... also, what about heart rate on a workout like this?? How high should it go?

4 miles in 34:29. Legs felt pretty good, not too sluggish to start like most mornings. Followed up with some stretching, weights, and ab work. I might swim laps after work.

Nothing this morning. Daughter woke up about the time I was supposed to get up and run, and it took both parents to settle the chaos.

I did 5 miles at the mall, running up the hill to Barnes and Noble on my circuits of the parking lot. I was happy to keep my 11:30 pace - a bit slow on the first mile, but made up for it in subsequent miles. The monsoon clouds were like a thermal blanket but at least my mouth and skin were not instantly dried out thanks to the higher humidity.<br><br>
Cheers,<br>

toe jam on crusty feet - What was the purpose of the run?<br><br>
- From a pure numbers standpoint you missed 1/3 of the workout. This is of course better than missing all a workout, but I wouldn't make a habbit of it.<br><br>
I ran 6 easy @ lunch -

This humidity is killing me...yesterday and today I attempted to do tempo track workouts...wasn't even close today. Wanted 3x6:00 miles with 3 min. rest. First one was like 6:01, second one I couldn't even manage the first one on pace and then I just stopped halfway through the 2nd lap. I felt so weird, not really lightheaded or dizzy but just really horible. I drank plenty of water and even dumped a bit of it on myself but nothing kept me cool either. Will go for a normal run at about 9 or 10 tonight I'm guessing.

ran my 8 mile route, took me 3 minutes longer than it used to and it was killing me <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif">. 5 weeks off was hard, realizing that I have to run a minute slower per mile than my "old" pace, is just depressing.

<b>Foxy</b> Just to show that it comes back faster than you think, I ran a 2.6 mile course on Sunday in 21:30, feeling crap, and tonight I went out and ran the same route, and was over a minute faster, and tonight's run seemed easy, compared to Sunday.<br><br>
Our bodies are remarkable and recovery and return is something we can learn to love.
