And you should be pleased! That is a hard effort. Broke 50 minutes one time, still remember it well. That last 2k shows a lot of strength.
Have seen much on media about the big island getting hammered weather-wise. Wondering if one of the upticks here is that gotten more indoor training as a result. Congrats on the 10k PR.

Thanks Steve.
As for indoor training, I'm only partially indoors. My rower and skierg are on my lanai, open to the world on 3 sides. I occasionally get rain blown in to the point I can't exercise out there but that is pretty rare. Most of the time the rain just comes down in torrents that seem to heavy to blow. :D

Got about another 6+ inches of rain overnight to this morning. Hopefully by Friday it will be gone.

That sounds awesome, and you must be well trained for heat and humidity.

New 10k PB on the Skierg, 2:11 faster than 4 weeks ago. I warmed up with a 5k, gradually going faster
to just above my goal pace for the start. My goal was under 48:50, and hopefully 48:20 or a little bit faster.

time meters 500m spm
47:57.0 10k 2:23.8 43
9:46.3 2000 2:26.5 45
9:41.0 4000 2:25.2 43
9:35.5 6000 2:23.8 43
9:30.0 8000 2:22.5 42
9:24.2 10km 2:21.0 43

I was feeling strong and getting ahead of my 27-26-25-24-23 pace goals. The last 2k and 1k were getting quite tough,
especially the last 500m, so I was mostly just hanging on at that point, but did a little kick the last 100m. The estimated
5k's were 24:15.1 (pb) and 23:41.9. My next goals are first to recover, then maybe aim for a 5k pb within the next two weeks.

Nice one John. I hope to be able to do that when I get to that age.

New 2K PB tonight.

8:32.3 r48

I think I could've gone a little harder on the middle two 500s and broke 8:30. Oh well, next time.
