Wanted to go under 21:00, but ran 21:02.
Splits were 4:12/17/11/14/08
Felt pretty good - 2nd 1000 was too slow as I was following a guy and he slowed down. Went around him when I realized the pace was too slow. Kicked as well as possible on a very humid night (actual humidity 99%). 27C
Still have hopes of going under 20 on a cool day in the fall.
Thursday - 60 mins on stiff, heavy legs.
Friday - rest and gym
Saturday - Club trip to seaside town of Kamakura for a 9.8k run up in the hills. Very easy pace first 2k, then 3 2k loops each getting faster and pushing the uphills, then 2k back as best I could in the heat. It was very hot!
Sunday - 90 mins and legs didn't feel too bad.
Monday - 60 mins.
Tuesday - may do a short run in the morning if I have time. Leaving for Portland, Maine about 11:00am. Beach to Beacon 10K is on Sat. Aug. 5. Seems like the weather there is cool - around 20C/68F in the morning. Hoping for a good run.
