Mon July 1st; Workout- 6xMile (800m jog rest) 4:36, 4:35, 4:35, 4:35, 4:33, 4:33. This went well. Ran up at UBC track. The Whitecaps (soccer team) were practicing as I worked out, for some odd reason they figured it was a good idea to set up their physio table in lane one. I was very annoyed. Sure they rent out that space and they can do what they want, but maybe a little respect for the kid rocking solo mile reps in 30deg heat? Why do they gotta make it harder than it already is? Friggen WhiteCaps.
pm. Easy 35min with Milne and Winter, 5mile. 19 on the day.
Tuesday July 2nd; 75min easy run…this was miserable! I don’t even wanna talk about it.
