AM - 4 x 1 mile on the levee w/ 1:00 rest. Warm/humid, typical summer weather, though temps and dew point have dropped a couple of degrees this week. I had no expectations for this since it's the first threshold workout of this cycle. I had a ~10 mph breeze out of the east that I ran into for rep #2. I didn't check splits and after rep #1, so everything from there was by feel. The wind demolished me. I ran the rest with the wind.
I'm pretty thrilled that 5:20 was the pace that I gravitated towards. If it's real and not wind-induced, then this is a great place to be at this point in the cycle. 20 weeks to Houston.
PM - 6 easy, no watch. 7:15-7:20 estimated avg.
