Provo River Trail by Geneva Road. The cough is almost gone. Decided to do a test of health. Warmed up 3.75. HR was 132 at 7:10 pace - 5-7 bpm above normal. Then drank some EmergenC to rehydrate. Then did the 5 mile tempo.
First mile 5:49, HR got up to 154. Then 5:47 (11:36), HR at 159. 14:31 at the turnaround (2:55). 3 miles in 17:30 (2:59), HR at 160. Next mile in 5:57 (23:27). Pushed it on the last mile (0.5% rolling uphill), got 5:48, 29:15 total, HR climbed to 165.
Cooled down 1.25 to make the total 10. Ran with the kids later in the afternoon.
The tempo run showed the sickness + the trip took more out of me than the Deseret News Marathon. That is not good. I wonder if I had something more serious than a simple cold.
However, the recovery after a sickness like this in the past has been fairly fast, so let's hope it happens again. I need to be in a fairly decent condition by Thanksgiving to win a turkey in a 4 mile race.
