Tu - 8.7
HRM reading looked solid, so I guess I just ran that badly over the weekend. It ran out of memory in the near the end of the warmup though and I had to delete 9/8 (43:28/152) and restart. Ugly humid. At 6am, 73.2 degrees with a dew point of 72.5 (98% humidity). I went to the elem school 0.1-mile track and did a lap. (2.93 + 1.8 + 0.1 = 4.83). Then I did 3 laps for each interval with 1.5 laps jog in between. I couldn't read my watch for the first 2 until I hit the lap button. (5 * 0.3 + 4 *0.15 = 2.1) I was aiming for 2 minutes (6:40 pace). They went: 2:04 (173), 2:02 (178), 1:58 (182), 2:01 (181), and 2:00 (184). The number in parentheses is the bpm at the lap mark. Overall they were pretty easy, but I think they should have been. Did the half nbrhd lap to cool down (1.75). Total 4.83 + 2.1 + 1.75 = 8.68. Unbelievably humid. Temp 73.2. Dew pt 72.5.

58 degrees!!!!!! Turns out it was still 97% humidty, but 58 degrees! I had to take advantage of this, so I planned to do something like the Pfitz medium long run I was supposed to do. It was dark and I was running with a headlamp, so keeping my pace up early on the trail was tough. I also stopped my watch at the traffic lights, which I don't normally do. Splits were
