PM: 6 miles, averaged 7:50. HR 162.

Blown workout. It was dry but 84 degrees and even though I tried to run the right effort I just couldn't do it. Session called for 20' tempo, 5' jog, 10 x 1' on/off, 5' jog, 6 x 30"/1'. I got through just over 18' and my legs were going. Aerobically I was working but the legs were a problem. I jogged for 5 minutes or so and decided not to continue. I ended up walking home as I started to feel really spent. Not too upset as I should have moved it to tomorrow. Lots of time to get workouts in. I need to be smart this summer and just do them on the treadmill when necessary. I doubt we will have the mild summer we had last year.
