Another sub par performance. I decided to do this workout at this last minute. Sean texted the workout the night before. I told myself that I may give this a go on Thursday. But lo and behold I woke up this morning and decided why don't I go ahead and get this out of the way today. When I got to the park it was so unbearably humid that Sean advised me not to do it today. I told him that my mind was set on it. So he suggested that I do it at 5:40 pace instead of 5:30 pace. I agreed. I really didn't think that this run would be too much of a problem even in the heat and humidity. I guess I was wrong.
I'm going through a period where I'm running significantly slower than I have earlier in the year. It's been a while since I've had a good workout or a good race. Mentally, I'm in maintenance mode, just making sure I keep my fitness. Like I said before, mentally I've got a lot of stuff going on, but it sure would be nice to pop a good one. At least this run was better than this one, which I was probably in better shape than I am now.
