20' @ Half Marathon Pace -10" + 6 x 1' On/Off

6:41 pace @ 169 BPM. I thought I might be able to get moving a bit faster with favorable weather, but I guess this is 10 seconds faster than half marathon pace. 1' intervals were aroudn 6' pace or slightly under. Legs still recovering from the bike race this weekend.

PM: 1 hour 12' (19.7 miles @ 16.3 MPH). 160W. HR 114.

Beautiful day out, so I figured rather than go downstairs on the trainer a short mixed ride was the ticket. 

This was the boys' first day of summer school.

Very pleasant running weather. Kept it quite easy. I imagine the lower HR runs will be gone once the hot weather arrives along with the humidity.

Legs were a touch sore/worked over from the bike race yesterday, but not terrible. Right around 9' pace felt about right. Enjoyed the run and felt good from the first stride to the last. Felt meditative and not overly taxing. Cool and breezy, threatening rain, but never got any.
