Levee sprints in a downpour. Thankfully there was little lightning, and the rain was mostly welcome. It was certainly nice to not have heat be my limiting factor today. 76°F air/76°F dew point.

2 sets of 8 x ~200m levee sprints. Ran 4 miles between sets. It was supposed to be medium effort rest, but medium ended up around 7:05 avg. I felt pretty strong throughout.

PM - Weights

AM - 10 recovery. I slept in and missed the pre-dawn hours. Had to cut the run a little short due to overheating.

AM - 12 easy, 7:27 avg. I wanted to log a few miles close to 6:00 pace, but my body rejected that idea after a mile of moderate acceleration. 

PM - 6 easy,7:29 avg.
