Another NWW (No Weekend Workout) mainly because of Little Ryan and his ability NOT to sleep. What it does is push the envelope of sleep on the weekend to about 6:45, the 15 minutes of twilight before Eric wakes up. My personal time is generally the time I wake up until Eric wakes up, then it's Eric breakfast time. During the week, I get up inconsistently between 5am and 6:30am, so that doesn't help with any early activity. Once the UT students are back in school and I am tutoring, that might change at least the weekday routine. For my weekend routine, Ryan needs to be sleeping through the night on a consistent basis. Once that happens, I think that my morning will become predictable.
As for today, my run was very consistent despite the heat. The Weather Channel read 86 (feels like 94) when I went to the Aquatic Center. I ran very consistent for the first 3 miles, or a 24:48 5k type pace in the shadeless high heat and humidity. Even though the last mile was a minute slower, I was still happy with the outcome. I decided to do a little homework and see what type of a hill it was because it is a rather gut-wrenching hill, what I found out was that hill is 0.3 tenths of a mile and the overall hill is a grade of 6.2%. Breaking the hill down even further, there is really 2 hills, the first is a 0.1 mile 6.8% grade and the other is a 0.2 mile 6.2% grade. So it's a workout! And as Frank Shorter (1972 Olympic Marathon Winner) is quoted as saying “Hills are speedwork in disguise.”
Here are the split times:
