The question is: will this make me faster?

Friday - July 2

Thursday - July 1

Run #1
  • 31m
  • 4.00 miles
  • 07m 45s /Mi

Time is estimated. This was a low-tech run: no GPS, no ipod, no HR monitor, no watch. It was just me and the road. It felt nice to just go out and run.

Run #2
  • 10m
  • -----
  • -----

5 min. warmup, 5 min. cooldown.

Wednesday - June 30

Bike
  • 2h 18m 17s
  • 43.50 miles
  • 18.87 Mi/hr

The time includes probably 3 minutes of "stoppage time," to borrow a term from soccer.

It was just a perfect day for a ride - about 70 degrees, light wind, and a well-kept trail. Thanks to Tyler for the ride - it's so much nicer to do a long ride with someone else instead of going alone.

So I went back and checked the last time we rode this trail all the way to the end back in May. Despite being 3 minutes faster (and probably more than that, if you take the stoppage time into account), my average HR was 11 BPM slower than on that day (142 vs. 131). Granted, there was a lot more wind that day, but I think this suggests my fitness has improved since the last time we rode.

Tuesday - June 29

Run #1
  • 22m 30s
  • 3.00 miles
  • 07m 30s /Mi

Quick run on the treadmill.

Run #2

5 min. warmup, 5 min. cooldown.

5 min. warmup, 5 min. cooldown.

Run #2
  • 48m 28s
  • 6.20 miles
  • 07m 49s /Mi

Good run on a great night. Lots of bugs. I ran a little harder than I have been for my longer runs, but it still felt comfortable.
