- run 10.45 km in 53:51 [tempo 1 km x 2 @ 3:47,3:41]
rest between intervals was 1 km @ 5:16. second interval starting to get tough. first was pretty easy.

- stretch

right knee sprinting pull was there a little at the beginning of the second interval but that was it. knees a little achey now. looking forward to new kicks.

- run 8.09 km in 41:12
expected to be more tired today given how hard yesterday was. felt great, picked up pace on last km to bring it home under 5:00 pace, nice and easy. meanwhile eliud kipchoge ran 42km today at like 2:55 pace. HALOL.

- stretch

starting to get nice in the evenings, fingers crossed that the season is turning. 5:05 overall tonight with less effort than 5:20 is in the gnarly heat and humidity.

also, set a seven-day distance PR: 51.7 km. gently moving in the right direction.

also, i had a minor blood sugar crash after the run last night. was getting visual hallucinations on the way to dinner. insufficient lunch. speaking of which, time to eat.

worked until 7 last night and then had to go straight to a work dinner so no run. slept badly as well, second night in a row. bah. tonight may go for the long run, especially if i can get my gf to come with for the first 4-6 km and set the pace nice and slow.

- run 12.0 km in 1:06:38
very easy pace, 5:33 average but fairly big range over the course of the run.

- stretch

felt awesome around 8 km mark but the feeling faded. left knee started bugging around 10 km, for a few minutes, then right knee around 11 km, also for a few minutes. both feel fine now.

- run 8.58 km in 43:08
fast christian pace, not sure why i picked it up that little bit tonight. thought about doing some extensive tempo in the middle but thought better given the distance yesterday and how my knees felt at the end.

19:00 5k. will have to do it as a time trial since there are no races here. i'd also like to do it without getting any skinnier.

picked up my new kinvara 9s today. excited to take them for a spin tonight. the kinvara 8s have just about 1200km/750 miles on them, which is good service.

no doubt. in all seriousness i bet you could get there with patience, if you set it as a goal and really focused on it.

- run 9.06 km in 46:22
5:07 pace, right on target for a relaxed run with 19:30 5k pace as the goal, based on that one training calculator i used months ago.

- stretch

57.3 km seven-day volume, which is a huge (>10%) PR and probably also means i should take a day off tomorrow just in the interest of not pushing myself too fast, AERS, etc. if gf wants to do yoga maybe i'll do that.

Humidity destroys me too. 9+km in 45' with a sub-4 km in is not a bad workout anyway, even granted how much you have progressed.
woot

humidity, from the perspective of exercise, is the great satan.
