Wed July 20
I set off a little later than planned on Wed for my now seemingly routine 10-miler at around 6:22 AM. The distance Pod has officially bonked this week, so I am flying blind on these runs like all runners were back in the day. Damn Polar device.
I had planned to run this one around 7:45 pace and can only really guess how the splits looked. HR seemed to be in check, but the humidity was quite high.
I know this route pretty well from past runs and it measures out at least 10 - depending how far I stretch north up 248th street in SW Naperville.
'whoa.... we're halfway there....'
Folks, I admit that I felt a little tired on this run. Monday’s tempo in the heat must have drained me. However, I did finish without incident.
Est Time: 1:17:50
Est Dist: 10 miles
Est Pace: 7:47
Avg HR: 155

'...it's now or never.... i ain't gonna live forever...'
