I've decided that if I ever want to run a fast marathon again, I've got to start doing some speed work again.  So, I got started with some 400m repeats this morning.  I ran to the middle school track then did 10 x 400m repeats with 400 m recovery jogs in between. I averaged 1:25 for the repeats. Then, I ran home easy.

Total run 9 miles

It was a nice cool morning around 69 degrees and I enjoyed a nice easy trail run for 7 miles.  Soon it is going to be really hot around here.  I'm not looking forward to that.

I ran easy a couple miles to the gym then hopped on the TM and ran 6 miles at 6:40 pace, then ran back home easy for a total of 10 miles.

We're supposed to get over 100 degrees today and up to 105 by Friday. I figure if I want to do a nice paced tempo run throughout the summer, I should do them on the TM. It gets way to hot to keep up that kind of pace for very long.

16 slow miles but not easy because of the heat. I took 3 20 oz bottles and drained them all with a few miles still to go. Guess it is time to start taking the bladder with me. It gets a bit scary out there in the desert when the water runs low. I did run into my first rattle snake of the summer. It was nice enough to give me a welcome rattle when I was still about 10 yards away. It was up in strike pose and did not stop rattling until I was around it and gone. Did I mention, I hate snakes.
