July 29

Well this will be short and sweet just like the 36 minute run tonight.

It was cooler tonight at 96 than it was last night but the lack of clouds made it seem hotter. Still there was a good breeze and I was pretty well hydrated throughout the day so I decided to lighten my load a bit and not bring any water.

On the first mile I was somewhat better about taking the HR up slowly than last night and since I was only going for 2.4 miles I was just doing a half mile warmup and cool down anyway. Even then it was going to be and speedy splits and even a 15:20 didn't bother me.

For the first part of mile 2 I felt like I was a little faster as I danced on the fine line of trying to stay as close to 132 bpm without going over and for the most part I was successful. It wasn't until the latter half where I caught myself going too fast on the slight decline that I spiked mu HR a couple times but I'll take the 14:06. From there it was just try to bring it down over the remaining distance which concluded in a 0.2 walk.

It may not have been much of a run but every mile counts. These 132 bpm runs will be coming to a close next week if all goes well with the MAF test on Sunday. Then it will be a couple weeks at 137 bpm before I push the limits for 2 weeks followed by a 2 week taper. That's right only 6 more weeks before the big day.
