2 warmup, 7 miles @ MP, 1 down. I ordered a new pair of Lunaracers and was stoked they arrived yesterday. They're my favorite tempo shoe of all time. I'd been using the Hyperspeeds, but I'm much more comfortable having a little more padding underfoot with how frequently I've been in, and will continue to be in, flats.

5:54, 5:54, 5:47, 6:00 (including turnaround), 5:55, 5:54, 5:50 for a 5:54 avg.

81 degrees with 77F dew point. I handled the humidity much better than last week, which I attribute to convincing myself to embrace the discomfort ahead of time. I love these longer tempos, and the fitness is starting to come around little by little. 

I registered for a low-key 5k on Sept 9, which is going to be perfect timing for my training schedule. I am really looking forward to it.
