From the farmer's market in VT.
Pickled cucumbers and hot peppers.
August 27th (Tuesday): 6:10am wakeup. Out for 3 miles (20:52) at 6:30am on my own. Protein shake for breakfast. Work 7:30am-4:15pm. Home to relax and I am officially fed up with the Subaru Outback's constant issues. I am attached to it, but I could use a new whip. I started to research away online and finally changed up for my workout around 5:30ish. 6xmile with 400 rest. Derrick stopped by before I could make it out the door so it delayed my departure a bit. Finally I was on the road to Burnt Hills High School at 7pm.
3.25 mile warmup (21:08) through the neighborhoods. Over to the track to do a couple strides and switch up the kicks into these babies:
I forgot how amazing these Nike Streak 4's feel on my feet.
6 x mile: 5:05, 5:04, 5:03, 5:01, 4:58, 4:56.
Kept the rest honest at 1:40-1:45 (last rest interval at 1:31). Everything was wicked even and smooth. Streaks felt great and happy with the results. Total time: 40:17. 5:23 pace overall.
3.25 mile cooldown (21:29) through the darkness. On a huge runner's high towards the end of the cooldown and on the car ride home. Protein shake and a spinach/onion omelet for dinner to rebuild the muscles I just ripped into shreds. Bed at a decent hour. 14 miles for the afternoon and 17 miles on the day.
Topped with ketchup and pepper.
