12 easy. Took more time off than intended from being sick and traveling back to New Orleans. The heat/humidity was a brutal shock this morning after Washington, and I slogged through this one in 7:32 avg.

2 WU, 6 x 200m levee sprints, 2 miles steady, 6 x 200m levee sprints, steady cooldown. It was about 80F with 76F dew points this morning. The sprints felt great and I ran the steady miles in ~6:30 avg. 6:56 avg for the run.

I wanted to cruise this one on the faster side of things, and maybe finish up with a few miles around marathon pace. I didn't feel great so it ended up being a middle-ish effort. 6:59 avg with the last 4 around 6:50. 

Added weights in the PM.

2 sets of 6 x 200m at City Park. 200m jogs between reps, 600m jog between sets. Swampy conditions with 80F air temp and 76F dew point.

32.9, 33.2, 32.6, 32.3, 32.8, 33.0

32.5, 32.1, 32.2, 32.5, 32.8, 31.3

Avg = 32.5

Not an overly stressful workout, but I was pleased with how it went. I was expecting about a second slower per rep.
