First week of marathon training in the books. Still too hot.
Sun 11.43km 159 HRavg
Mon 11.46km 144
Tue 11.50km 154
Wed 15.01km 158 (longest run, 100* heat index)
Thu 9.35 km 139
Fri 12.29km 179 (12 x 400m w/400 jog between)
And we're off!
Heat index for every run in the 90s, except for the long run that broke 100.
It kinda sucked, but when it is like this everyday, u really do get used to it mentally. Like that boiling frog in the steadily heated pot...
RR: Best race ever for me was last November's Taroko Gorge Marathon, my breakthrough race, though not a PR race. It occurred half way through my training cycle, and I "knew" at that point that I would finally break 4 hours in my December goal race. The race report is here
, if you care to peek.
NRR: I am a baseball fan, first and foremost. NFL comes in second. If playing with my daughter counts as a sport, that's definitely one that I participate in every day.
Bonus: Definitely 60s. The decade of Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy...Mark Twain got his start too. Ahhh, the 1860s. Such memories.
