10 easy + 10 @ MP, 1 CD on the levee. Warm and humid. It was 75F w/ 71F dew point by the finish. Can't say how frustrated I am that it's this humid in February. I did the first 10 as an out and back and stopped at the house to switch to flats. I tried taking some honey and water at that point as well.

5:36, 5:36, 5:38, 5:48 (big dip & headwind), 5:39 (turnaround), 5:29, 5:31 (big dip & tailwind), 5:38, 5:44, 5:41

Avg = 5:38

The 2 5:30 miles surprised me since I didn't feel like I'd sped up. I was hoping to finish a little stronger, but I think the humidity got to me. There was some headwind on the last 3, maybe 5-10 mph, and those last 3 miles were pretty tough.

9 x 1k w/ 2:00 rests @ CV pace + 4 x 200m on the levee. Conditions were warm and humid, 72 F air/70F dew point. I can't believe we're seeing 70° dew points so soon.

3:11, 3:10, 3:09, 3:12, 3:15 (big dip), 3:11, 3:11, 3:09, 3:07

Avg: 3:10.6

I started a 10th but came through 400 in 80s and decided I was good for the day.

I think I'm going to send my Streak 6s back. I'm probably going to lose a toenail from them being a little too short. I've made them work to this point, but I don't trust them for a marathon.
