8-Mile Aerobic Builder

Schedule was 50', but I decided to just do 8 miles knowing I would still be very slow. Around 7:25 average. I have apparently regressed to pre-2013 levels. Oh well. Happy and healthy, so what's to complain about?

Night: 3.3 miles treadmill, averaged 11'+. HR 121

Noon: 8 miles, averaged 10:17. HR 133.

Ran most of it on Oakland's cross country course, which is not at al challenging.

Night: 6.3 miles, averaged 10:34. HR 123.

Cool and pleasant. Very dark as I got out at 10:45. I forgot how much I like running around the lake in the dark.

PM: 34.4-mile ride. HR 159.

Beautiful day and a good fast ride. I averaged 19.7 and 20.3 for the loop. I pulled a guy basically from the Proving Grounds (maybe 12-15 miles into the ride) through the rest of the ride as I once again let a gap open up. a PR for the loop, but I missed my arbitrary sub-90' goal by 34 seconds. I hope to have a few more of these Thursday rides before it tapers off for the year. After that, I'll probably just do my own ride on Thursdays, leaving earlier in the afternoon after I am on campus (or do a long ride home from campus).

3 hours total. First few with Megan. It was hot and humid and I just ran survival pace. I got some cloud cover for a bit. It would have been rough otherwise.

We went to a house warming party. Good time.
