Run Down

I can't believe it's already August!  Where did the time go?  Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick recap of both the past week and the past month.

The unrelenting heat and humidity have wreaked havoc on my training.  It's hard to run when you can barely breathe while sitting still!

Distance: 4.01 miles
Time: 37:33
Avg. Pace: 9:22
*loved this!

Distance: 3.07 miles
Time: 31:25
Avg. Pace: 10:14
*This was another interval workout.  7x400 this time, so the info above doesn't really show what I was up to.  Here are the average paces for each interval:
1 = 7:57
2 = 7:31
3 = 7:20
4= 7:44
5 = 9:01 (ick!)
6 = 8:00
7 = 7:54

Distance: 8.98 miles
Time: 1:43:22
Avg. Pace: 11:30
*This is the run where it all fell apart.  The heat and humidity combined with a headache and a lack of willpower made for a miserable run.  I was so frustrated during this run that I wanted to cry, but didn't even have the energy to do that!  I'm due to run a half marathon in 2 weeks.  I need a good long run!

Now for the month as a whole.  Total mileage for July was 52.29 miles.  I know I can do better!
