Another outside run down the middle of 1300 West.  Although I almost got hit by a car who didn't bother stopping to make a right turn two streets north from JohnnyV's street.  Since I'm blogging, it is not hard to figure out that I did manage to successfully take evasive action.  I remained calm, but nothing compared to this guy.

 

1) 8:10 steep uphill from my house down by the river; 2) 7:19; 3) 7:15; 4) 6:49; 5) 6:58; 6) 6:53; 7) 6:51; 8) 6:48; 9) 7:05; 10) 7:01; 11) 7:43; 12) 7:31; 13) 7:32; 14) 7:15; 15) 7:33; 16) 7:50; 17) 8:05; 18) 8:02; 19) 8:03; 20) 8:12; 21) 8:21; 22) 7:55.

Average HR first 10, 150, second 12, 142 too low.

Left foot is holding up, though I could feel a little tendon fatigue towards the latter part of the run so I didn't push the pace, even though I felt like I had more in me and which my heart rate data confirmed.  I wanted to run strong for the first 10 then back off for the remainder focusing on just spending some decent time on my feet.  The first 10 is a very slight net downhill.  Very pleasant morning.

 

p.m 8 equivalent on the elliptical.

One hour barbell class.  And remember the Fonz had more than cool looks.

 

1 at 6:18, 1 at 6:08, 1 at 5:50 but all at -3% decline making them relatively easy.

7.5 at 8:00, random incline to 1.5%.  4 at 7:00, -3% decline.  3 at 6:27, -3% decline.  2 easy cool down, all on the treadmill.  Good LT run.

Finally got around to watching the first 2 episodes of Season 6 of MI-5.  Awesome.
