Work Versus Week 2

Two Runs this Week Below 70°F!

52 miles for the week (September 21st to 27th)

M - 5¾ miles recovery run at 8:46 pace, 82°F at 4AM
Tu - 7¾ miles general aerobic at 7:31 pace, very warm and humid 83°F at 4AM
W AM - 6¾ miles general aerobic at 7:19 pace, 69°F at 4AM
W PM - 7 miles slowing picking up the pace on the track, average pace 7:01, 72°F at 7PM
Th - 5¾ miles recovery run at 8:31 pace, 68°F at 4AM
F - 12 miles general aerobic at 7:47 pace, 76°F from 10:30AM
Sa - 7 miles recovery at 8:47 pace, 79°F at 11AM
Su - received a 3AM call-in to work at the power plant, humid and foggy morning, low 76°F

After oppressive morning runs in the 80s Monday and Tuesday, the first 60s of the Fall came through to the coast. 69°F feels so much better than 83°F! But the warm and humid air was back by the weekend. Sunday's planned 18 miles would have been a struggle if I had a chance to run it.

Here is proof there is some athletic talent in my family. My nephew Cody is one of the incoming freshmen on the UCLA baseball team. He's third from the left in the second row.
