Today was another long work day. I got home late and decided to get my running in outside instead of at the gym. It is still hot but the humidity has subsided some over the last few days. I am not going to say it was comfortable out but it was at the least bearable!
I decided I wanted today to be a hard anaerobic run. So I started out at a 7:00 minute pace and just keep on motoring. I did have to pause for about a minute at one point when my iPod headphone got ripped out of my ears. As I ducked under a tree one of the branches grabbed hold of the cord. It wasn't very fun trying to untangle that sucker!
After that little pause I continued to haul butt and ended up with a time of 22:47 for the 3 miles. This is a personal best for me for the 3 mile distance. When I returned to the house I was soaking wet from sweat and started to wonder how in the heck people can do a mile in 5 minutes? That is just crazy run times!
Tomorrow I am back in the gym for some lifting. My schedule has me doing Legs & Back but I think I might substitute that with Shoulders & Arms. My legs are still feeling a little sluggish and I want to run a couple more times this week - 7 miles on Saturday!
Oh, btw, in case some of you were wondering what ever happened with my broken down Grand Prix - the transmission is done! They are replacing the entire thing and it is all still under warranty. The good news is that I will be driving around a big ass Dodge Ram 4 door pickup for the next week or two compliments of my company. I owned an F150 Super Crew a couple of years ago and miss that truck everyday!
