Six in the Morning, Six in the Evening

AM - 6.14 miles, 47:57, 7:48 pace, max HR = 140, Avg HR = 130, 54% Z3, balance below
PM - 6.15 miles, 46:23, 7:32 pace, Max HR = 153, Avg HR = 143, 1% Z4, 88% Z3, balance below

Motionbased weather is still down. It's been down for about a week or more. I guess you get what you pay for (free).

My route was exactly the same for both, so it makes for a good comparison between the runs. I ran faster in the evening and it was hotter, so my heart rate was understandable higher. Check out the graph where I compare my half mile split times and heart rates.
It's interesting to see how consistent I was over each individual half mile. This is probably because the terrain over the route is varied, so my times and heart rates go up on an incline, and down on a decline.

TDLY - 7/7/07 - Run to Coco Crepes Restaurant to meet Julie, 7.23 miles, 1:03:57, 8:50 pace, Max HR = 170, Avg HR = 156, 73% Z4, 21% Z3, 84 degrees, 75% humidity. I was still fairly new to hour long runs at this point, and I very nearly quit during the latter stages of this run to meet Julie. It was quite difficult.
