6 mi. Hurricane Irma came and went – and today was a morning to sprint on the hill. Maureen arrived first and told me the park was closed. We left our cars on the east side of the bridge in the parking lot of a closed bank. We didn’t do a real warmup, just a short jog to the entrance to Phil Foster Park, our usual starting point. Franci and Gary were also out for their Tuesday morning bridge runs, Franci took the photo featured here.
There was a breeze from the west, meaning the sprinting would be happening into that. It was still very humid, so it was a welcome breeze. I didn’t have a terrific feeling about how fats I’d be going, it was hot on the 3 laps of over and back. I did well for the 6 sprints, timing at 1:22, 1:22, 1:21, 1:22, 1:22, 1:21 with the last three in daylight. The park bathrooms were closed but I was able to rinse off with the shower before getting back into the car.
