Today I ran the fastest I have run in years. The same interval set as last time, but on the indoor track as I still have two more weeks of membership remaining. It's much better to run on a track with a set goal and no traffic, then you can focus on form and striding out. I surprised myself by actually enjoying this.

I can add an extra interval now.

Running 10:46 intensity: (16 @0) + (21 @1) + (52 @2) + (2:01 @3) + (4:56 @4) + (2:20 @5) 1.87 km (5:46 / km)

The car needed longer than we had planned (a whole 1.5 days!) in the shop, so I had to go pick Rob up. Except I left my glasses in our car, so I ran to the Zipcars closest to Veronica's house, borrowed her glasses (we have an identical prescription!) and then went to get Rob. Drove a few blocks without glasses which I felt okay about as I could see more without mine from out of the lab window than Dan can see with his driving legal glasses. Slightly worrying.

This sudden turn of "speed" through the middle of Yale Commencement did not feel good.
11 AM

Recovery 43:06 intensity: (10:15 @0) + (7:07 @1) + (19:16 @2) + (6:28 @3) 5.04 km (8:34 / km) +38m 8:15 / km
ahr:133 max:158 shoes: Shiny red Sauconys

Then thought I would recovery run back from the Zipcar so I wouldn't wimp out today. Felt fine. Joe Biden popped in the say hello right at the end, which was pretty exciting.
7 PM

Cross Fit 33:23 intensity: (9:42 @0) + (14 @1) + (4:59 @2) + (17:38 @3) + (50 @4)

Neighbourhood trundle. It did not feel good. For this reason, and that fact that the rear suspension of the car was making a very suspicious noise, I decided to to drive anywhere this weekend. Sorry to miss two excellent meets.

I am totally shattered. I think it's because I slowed down after the crazy month that ended a couple of weeks ago. Going to continue taking it easy this week, then maybe try 20 minutes of running every day from Saturday. There is a horrendous cold going round the lab too and I am all stuffed up, perhaps it's a bit of that aswell.

Note

We got a grant! For my stuff! A small development grant, but a grant nonetheless. Might even be able to afford an actual experiment if I talk nicely to our guys at the sequencing centre.
