5 mile wave at 3:05/2:50
3 mile warmup
5 mile Wave at an estimated 3:10/3:00
1.5 mile cool down for 9.5 miles total
4.5 miles in the PM
Since I spent 9 hours in the car and returned home from Indiana last night at 10PM, this workout was doomed before I even laced up my shoes. It's difficult to stay hydrated while in the car for that long and it probably prevented healthy blood flow from my legs. I didn't feel bad on my warmup, but once I started the workout, it was really difficult to hit my target paces even though my breathing was fine. My legs just didn't have that extra gear. It was definitely hot and humid, and I think that some days it affects me more than other days. Today was not particularly a great one, but even after my Garmin died, I maintained a hard/medium effort for the whole five miles. My cool down was ridiculously slow, but it was all that my legs could muster. Looking forward to a better workout on Friday.
