Exercise

I realized that I didn’t talk at all about my workouts and running last week. I guess I was a little preoccupied with plagerising, planet’s orbital status and fancy schmancy gadgets.

I ended up running three different times last week and a swim!

Monday
I ran an easy run on my MSQ Fab4 miler course and the heat about killed me. I averaged a 10:10 min pace for the 4 miles.

Tuesday
822 swim in 17:45 which wasn’t too bad of a time.

Wednesday
2.55 mile new course around campus. Tempo run with an 8:52 average pace. I was trying to shoot for 3 miles, so I will have to tweak the course a little.

Thursday
Long Run of 8 miles. This was a late evening run on a couple of greenways near UT campus, averaging a 9:52 pace although the average is deceiving because I totally burnt out on the first mile and had to survive to bring it home for the last 2 miles. I did have my brand new (to me) CamelBak with me on this run and it saved my life while I was out in the heat. SO big thanks to Petra for sending me this wonderful gift.
