Last night my wife found out she had a late meeting today so I flipped my 2 runs in order to pick Ben up from day care this evening. The day care is 14 miles away and has tons of hills including a steady 4 mile monster.
am) 6 miles crazy easy (GZ- I would have joined you guys but Stearns is 4 miles away and I didn't wake up until you were halfway done). I bundled up with a pair of Skins compression tights and a double layer pair of winter nylon pants. 3 layers up top. I boiled. Even though this was a very relaxed pace my very elevated body temperature raised my HR and respiration quite high.
pm) 14 miles with hill efforts of ~25:00 and ~15:00 at HR 165. Over-all average HR was 151. I started out feeling completely wasted. Legs were jelly and I had no energy. About 3 miles in it all started to click and I ended up running a very solid effort and pace. Tool's "10,000 Days" on my i-pod was the turning point in the run.
