7.2 miles this morning with the Yasso intervals and 2:45 of rest between them. According to my HR monitor, I managed to push myself into the anaerobic zone, although only for 6 seconds.

I have always enjoyed stories about the East African distance runners. For those interested, thought I would share this.

He runs with my club in Tokyo when he's out there - and he's a really good writer.

8 mile tempo run this morning. 1 mile warm up followed by 6 at tempo and a 1 mile cool down.

Overall pace was at 6:42/mile. The 6 mile tempo section clocked in around 6:23/mile with the fastest mile @ 6:16.

Pushed myself a little harder because weather felt good so figured I wouldn’t let it go to waste. Temps were in the mid 60’s with low 40’s humidity.

I wonder how Garmin figures out VO2 max because I am 2/min mile slower and 55. Also I picked up the Lava Red version but wish they offered other band colors. Almost went with the purple colored 45S because I liked how the colored wrapped around the watch vs. just on the band.

A warm 5k at 8 am. I’m finding that long runs leave my back really tight, so I’m going to stick to shorter runs for a while.

Went out for a short tempo today. I missed the cooler weather and it was hot. To be honest, I didn't really enjoy it at all, felt sluggish and I also seem to have done something to my left hamstring. Doesn't feel too serious but it's still something. Maybe I should have only had one day off (or maybe 3).

6.7km (just over 4 miles) in 28:59, which is 4:20/km pace - should have been 4:15 according to Daniels (and my own estimates).

Hottest day of the year thus far and I had a workout planned. Mid-90’s, moderately humid, full sun.

2mi WU, 2.5mi Tempo, 1.8mi CD.

Work miles: 6:55, 6:47, 3:24

As soon as I left my house I knew this was going to suck...but I started to feel a little better after the warm up mile. I stop to do my dynamic stretches and drill routine but I was getting swarmed by mosquitos and aborted. Psychologically that really bummed me out. I look forward to opening up my mobility and focusing on rhythm before a harder effort. It ended up being okay, but man the sun was melting me like an ant under a magnifying glass. I originally planned a 20 minute tempo run, but cut it short because my pacing was shit. I was inadvertently speeding up because I wanted it get it over with. The cool down felt miserable. The exposure of the sun drained the life out of me. Either I need to get tougher or it needs to get cooler. Hopefully both.

Hottest day of the year so far here too. My wife and I took the kids and dogs for a hike where I ran last Wednesday. 3.4 miles carrying 40 pounds of gear and a kid. While the kids were finishing lunch, I made a cake for the older one’s birthday. After that was done, I went for a 20.6 mile mixed terrain ride (~2/3rds gravel) on the cx bike.

My favorites are Assos and Panache. The Panache bib shorts (yes, I wholeheartedly recommend bibs: your nether regions will thank you) are considerably cheaper, but the Assos are noticeably better for longer rides.

Also, use chamois cream for any rides much longer than an hour. My goto brands are Assos and DZ Nuts.
