am - 7 miles, commute loop with james

pm - track tuesday -- 1500m: 5:07 / 3000m: 10:56

1500: (82, 86, 82, 59) 

3000: (83, 86, 88, 89, 90, 88, 87, 41) 

my goal for the 1500m was ~5:00. i've only run this distance one other time (march 2016), and i ran it in 4:54. at the time i had no reference point, but now that i do, i see i was in much better shape then. :) i got boxed in a bit on the second lap, and overall i think i could have pushed it a bit harder. i'll get one more shot before these meets are over.

for the 3000m, i made it in just under 11:00 again, and one second faster than two weeks ago. i'll take it! this was rough, as i had maybe 20 minutes between the two races. the heat started really fast (everyone was still amped up on 1500 pace), and then i spent the rest of the race slowly dying. 

it was sooo muggy tonight after raining all day. and we met bret!!

Nice meeting you guys tonight. Very good effort tonight in the steamy climate.

I just looked at my calendar and I am out of town or unavailable for the next 3 Tuesdays...The next meet is literally 2.7 miles from my office!
