Fitness Run

Distance: 4 miles
Time: 38:23
Pace: 9:35 min/mi

Comments: My first two miles were as consistent as my last two miles, the problem being my pace over the second half of the run was a half minute slower per mile than the first. My legs feel significantly stronger and I'm definitely past the "just hold on and finish the damn thing" phase. But the heat and humidity are conspiring against my uneven conditioning. Still, that's 18 miles this week, the most since January.

Hour: 6:00 a.m.
Surface: concrete
Weather: clear
Temperature: 74 degrees
Humidity: 81 percent
Wind: calm
Location: Lewisville, Texas
Shoes: Asics Gel-Kayano 21

Injury update: Slight but persistent soreness in my left calf.
