Didn't sleep much last night. Stayed up late watching Tech lose to Notre Dame. Got out the door late, and with my stomach already growling, knew I wouldn't stop running, and be able to eat, until at least 12:30. A little warmer than I anticipated but not too bad. 65/64 at 9:30 and 69/67 at 12:30.
Like yesterday, this was harder than it should have been I thought. My "things get harder" point came about 1:55 instead of 2:05 today. I attribute that mostly to running 11 miles yesterday.
I ended up averaging 165 bpm over the last lap and at ~175 near the end just to keep the same pace. Ugh. 49:49/131 , 49:02/140, 48:43/151, 49:03/165
This was a much worse performance for an 18-miler than previous runs (under much hotter conditions, but less humid conditions). 7/30 -- 3:17:37/142, 8/06 -- 3:11:47/143, today -- 3:16:38/147.
today's shoes: wc7-2
week: 55 miles (5 days -- damn you work!)
wc7-1 : 278 + 28 (not sure I got this right) = 306
wc7-2: 151 + 27 (not sure right) = 178
