5-10-08 (70 of 92)

Went for a swim at the gym today. Swam for a little over 20 minutes at the pool. I love my new goggles. I did the first part of the swim timed to 22 laps to make sure I could do the race distance with the TI method. That went well, and I did drills and easy laps for the remainder of the time. 22 laps in about 12 minutes. I think I'm liking the TI method.

Then I ran 4 miles with Steph, but it was HOT and HUMID. I did the 4 miles in about 34 minutes. The hills were brutal in the heat.

Mile 1 = 9:34
Mile 2 = 8:45
Mile 3 = 8:58
Mile 4 = 8:40

I've been trying to work on running negative splits for my runs. I've been reading the benefits of doing negative splits, and as they say - "you race like you train".
