It's about 90-degrees today, and it most definitely feels like it.

I don't know why I choose to run intervals, let-a-lone on the hottest day of the year in the middle of the afternoon. But I did, and this is how it unfolded.

Man, these were incredibly hard. I keep trying to remind myself to be okay with this effort level because I'm not racing for a while and I'm not training.

Hooray, I've got 7 miles logged so far this week. baaahahaha I crack myself up.

    Hard in the heat but you can always feel that you worked hard and got a good workout after. Good work!

    It goes like that sometimes, Chris. Those are some fast 400's to me!

    Thanks everybody. It's not the heat that was the problem. It's me. It's all good, I'm not training so I don't expect to have the same energy level. This is close to normal speed, however only about 1/2 of a workout.and same effort. It was a great day out there.
