easy pace, checked in periodically to make sure i could do five steps per in and out breath. averaged 4:58. it was crowded as hell on the canal tow paths today.

- run 9.62 km in 46:47
very warm outside, not quite hot. went out a little too fast (4:45, 4:40) but the first 2 km are all downhill and with the wind. came in at about the same pace for the last 1.62 km, but had to work for it just a little. never let breath get harder than four steps in, four steps out.

- run 10.11 km in 48:27
today was the hottest of the year so far. 26 degrees during the run, which isn't all that hot, but after months of never being over 20 it sure felt that way. pace averaged 4:48, which is fine, but was all over the place.

^^^
So true! The other day that i PRed i wanted to state that it was the hotest day of the year so far, actually the hottest May day in decades. Then i checked and it was 25 which i log as 'cool' in my summer runs so i didn't even log it. But it makes a ton of a difference initially, needs acclimation. Garmin measures that acclimation actually, but i wont get there haha.
woot

Hot weather in the UK is unbearable, it just feels so wrong. I've experienced 45-46c in Morocco and cycling home yesterday in 26c was worse than that. Strange haha

true, it's so much to do with what you're adapted to.

- run 10.01 km in 49:14
4:55 average, not surprisingly a little slower with two days' accumulated fatigue. and it was still "hot" today.

- warm up x 1 km

- interval 400m in [88,90,88,88,87,85,90] w/200m jogging rest
super windy, enough to blow the upwind leg into the downwind leg while running across and to really feel the pressure running into it. still managed to get everything under 90 (numbers above are rounded). the 85 on the penultimate lap is a good sign, although it was mostly with or at least across the wind rather than into it.

- cool down x 1.39 km

- stretch

might lower the target pace the next time i do intervals, reduce the reps to six, then build back up to eight.

i leave for the states, for good, in just over two weeks. so on the other hand all the pacing is gonna have to be revised because of the heat and humidity. well, one thing at a time.

- run 16.07 km in 1:23:58
successfully slowed down, averaged 5:13 pace. splits mostly consistent through the middle, a little too quick up top and a little slower at the end. breath easy but legs were a little tired by the end of this.

EDIT: just realized i ran 9.99 miles. lololol damn it.
