9 AM

running (neighborhood warm humid) 44:17 [3] 4.0 mi (11:04 / mi)
shoes: Adidas Duramo 9

Good run for neighborhood. I was really tired last night and when I woke up so thought it best to walk but I had 2 streaks of 3 days where I did not run (except for a 2 mile 12:30 pace trotting stretch) and I had lost some running 'power' so I thought it would be best to run slowly rather than walk...form bad at first but it seemed to me that it might be due to not running as much and not doing any quick stuff in nearly 2 weeks. I preserved and shuffled along and got stronger as I went.

Strangely enough a good running 'mantra' right now is simply to say 'run'...

24:05 (11:32)
34:32 (10:27)
44:17 (9:45)

I did some very short Zatopeks from about 1 mile to 3.5...3-5 steps at a time...sometimes that seems to steady my heart and breathing into a good rhythm and even 'oxygenate' my blood...all my own theories...and it's distracting and easy to get in a rhythm...sometimes.
10 AM

biking 10:00 [3] 2.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

Some Zatopeks.

running tempo (6 x .5) 1:58 [3] 0.3 mi (6:33 / mi)
shoes: Adidas Duramo 9

I felt I could do some strides after I biked...if I did them right away...even 5 minutes was too long as my body was going to start shutting down. Tightened shoes, trotted into the first one and took off. Form was horrible but for me and for the first stride not bad...I guess the time off of strides rested up my 'fast muscles'.

I really 'smoked' the last two .5 reps...probably just over 6 min pace...of course that was for a grand total of 1/10th of a mile...haha. Note I ran 1:57.8.
