Heart Rate and Heat Soak

OK, so 6:08 hard fought miles today, just a little less than yesterday’s 10K race, but it was hot hot hot.

After a sprightly start @9:27/mile, my pace slowed to a drastic 10:59 during the last mile, which I partly walked. I wasn’t quite ready for the crash my sugar and carb-free day would bring me, along with some stifling late spring New York heat and humidity.

So here’s the chart – my old ticker Vs pace.

Getting Hotter and Slowing Down

I’ve been humbly reminded this evening what it’s like training during the summer! Yay for Fall Marathons!
