Monday and today (Tuesday) workouts:
A run day, a short one at that. I planned to only go 3 miles since I wasn't sure if the heat was going to get to me. It was hot but not very sunny, so I didn't want to get out to 2 mile turn around and be dead. So, I made it to 1.5 and turned back. It was a very successful run especially after the Scholar's Run. I was able to keep my pace up really well and only stopped at the halfway point to rehydrate. So in essence, I did the total 3 miles without walking. That is right, I made it up the Lake Loudon hill without stopping and in good time too. Here are my splits:

Split Split Distance Overall Distance Split Time Split Pace Overall Time Overall Pace
1 1.0 1.0 7:39 7:39 7:39 7:39
2 0.5 1.5 3:58 7:56 11:37 7:45
3 0.5 2.0 4:07 8:14 15:44 7:52
4 1.0 3.0 8:10 8:10 23:54 7:58

In the pool, 1097 meters… I did 822 of them freestyle and then for 6 laps I tried the backstroke, worked on breast stroke and see how far I could go under water. I should have ran today, because it was nice and cloudy and fair cool (around 80 degrees). The humidity wasn't as bad either.
