7-mile Aerobic Builder (6:24 Avg), 5' Jog + 6 x 45" Strides
Warmed up 3 miles, just as the thunderstorms rolled through. Typically I get really skittish and play it safe but I wasn't in the mood to miss a workout. So I kept at it until things got a little hairy and started back home. The storm seemed to lessen in intensity, so I started the workout and decided if it got worse again, I would go home. It didn't. Good amount of rain, but I don't mind running in the rain as long as it is not really windy or very cold.
My legs felt like they weren't firing at all, probably from the blasts yesterday and the overall exercise volume these last few weeks. Still did okay.
6:32, 6:29, 6:20, 6:23, 6:24, 6:20, 6:20 (HR ~176)
I took auto splits but didn't have average pace on. Jogged for 5' and then did my 6 x 45" strides will jog/shuffle back to starting point. Those were a lot faster than they felt. Good to see my legs are moving when I am tired.
Cooled down 3 miles or so.
PM: 5 miles, averaged 10:26. HR 125.
