T-21 – Pushing Time

Still killing time until mid-July.  Focused on cardio at the gym.  Really trying to get the weight down a bit.  For the speed and for the ease on the feet and knees (and to get the weight off).  Did another 6 miler outside Sunday.  Summer is definitely coming.  Will need to get going a little earlier as we get into it to reduce heat.

As with last week, was pushing on time.  Had a good first two miles.  Then it was pretty ugly after that, with more walk breaks than I’d like.  But at 1:01:25 (including 5 minutes either end of warm-up/cool-down) one of the faster times I paced that distance for, even last summer.  Once a week runs outside (we will not be even looking at the treadmills until we have to in mid-July) at this distance seem pretty reasonable to continue for the next few weeks.
