Unscheduled day off. Cracked my kneecap on some furniture and decided to play it safe with ice and rest.

AM - 8 mile tempo on the levee this morning. The weather history shows 75/75 temps for my run, but I don't think that's right. It was much warmer and more humid than my runs last week. In any case, I struggled with it today. I'd hoped to start around 5:35 and cut down for a overall 5:30 average, but it just wasn't happening. I opened in 5:40 and ended up just maintaining that for the run. 5:40 overall avg.

PM - 4 recovery, no watch.

AM - Track day. 1000, 1200, 1600, 1200, 1000 (2:50, 3:10, 4:20, 3:10 rests) + 4 x 200m.

3:05, 3:41, 4:58, 3:44, 3:05

34.2, 33.1, 32.5, 32.0

Conditions were awful at 82F air + 77F dew point, and the too hot monkey jumped on my back during the 1600. Not a flashy workout, but I got the work done.

Cooled down to 16 miles.

PM - 6 recovery.
