Threshold Attempt

Warm Up
Threshold attempt, 5.01 miles, 34:42, 6:55 pace, Max HR = 171, Avg HR = 162, 89% Z4, 9% Z3, 85% and sunny, 68% humidity, 6:37, 6:39, 7:05, 7:11, 7:03
Warm Down

My attempt was to run this with a 6:30 pace for five miles, the first time this season that I've tried a five mile threshold. As you can tell, I missed the mark on every mile, and it got progressively worse. Many of the other Tornados struggled as well.

For me I think it was a combination of the heat and the fact that I ran 58 miles in the prior six days. Tomorrow's rest day will be well appreciated. I'll be watching Leno run at the last Rice All Comer's meet of the season. Next year I'll enter a few events.

TDLY - Museum District Neighborhood Run, 4.16 miles, 36:54, 8:52 pace, Max HR = 152, Avg HR = 141, 86% Z3
