Thanks to some mechanical issues with my '91 Jeep, I didn't get in my run on Tuesday. Ok, I should come clean, a combination of hubris and mechanical issues. Let me explain. I've had an ongoing issue with the Jeep and warm engine+weather starts. The issue would get worse as the temperature rises, so naturally, a 100+ degree day, a full list of stop/start errands and a Jeep with a warm start problem is not a good combination. On the bright side, all I have to do is give it enough time to cool off and it starts fine, which ended up being over an hour the third time. After this I wised up and swapped cars.
Today was hot, but not unbearable. I was running at a busy time on the trail, so the other people and their pets were a nice distraction from my own inner turmoil. I believe this is the largest volume of interval work I've done in one workout, which isn't saying much, but I definitely feel it today. Got plans for another spin class this weekend.
