50' @ Aerobic Threshold + 4 x 45" Strides

I went to the gym as it was already climbing into the 80s when I was ready to run. I had planned on going anyway. I warmed up 2 miles, but I was supposed to do 30'. I somehow got confused. Workout called for 50' @ aerobic threshold, so I figured just a click or two down from the aerobic builders I have been doing. I figured in decent conditions 6:40s would feel quite comfortable given for the faster efforts I have been averaging low-6:40s. 6:40 was too hard on treadmill, so I backed off a bit (averaged 6:56). My goal was to keep my HR under 170 for almost the entire run and keep the average around 165-168 (averaged 166). I felt a little rough at times, but I think I am not used to have to concentrate on the treadmill. I got through feeling strong, but my feet were slipping on the belt from all the sweat. Switched treadmills to complete the workout. Cooled down 3.3 miles.

Deviated from my typical lunch and demolished a Pot Belly sub after as it was almost 2:00PM and I hadn't eaten anything.

Pretty nasty out.

We got a nice sun shower. It was a relief as the low was 77 degrees last night and we lost power. Yep. Sleeping was not fun. Glad I had a few beers. I sat in my car, charged my phone, and read in the AC. Power came back around 2:00PM

Rode over to River Bends to do some low key single track riding. I stopped at the skatepark because I have never see it even though I have been to the park a few times. It's a decent park. Made me wish I had a BMX bike to see if I could break my old man butt.

PM1: 13.3-mile ride. HR 124.

Got to use my brakes a bit as well as to get the rear wheel to slide around a bit to learn how the bike rides in different conditions. I only banged my arm on one tree. Read for a bit outside and then went for a shakeout run.

PM: 4.7 miles, averaged 8:32. HR 145.
