I set a new benchmark for myself

I did laps at Cleveland Park today. Thankfully, the rain held off and I didn't end up like last Tuesday. Overall I was happy with the way things turned out -- except that for some reason, my achelles tendon is bothering me.

I pushed for the first hour and managed to squeeze out a 19 mph average. That was exciting. I have never done that before. Even after slowing down a bit and climbing back home, I managed to keep an 18 mph average. I'm growing more and more confident about September 2nd.

Today's Training Line:

Distance: 28.03 miles / Average Speed: 18.0 mph / Time: 1:33:21
Average Heart Rate: 160 bpm / Level 5: 0:45:10* / Work: 861**

* Level 5 is the time heart beats between 165 and 183 bpm
** Comparative number to measure exertion during different sessions
