65min w/4x3min efforts + 15min effort

Distance:13.80 km
Avg Pace:4:43 min/km
Elevation Gain:62 m
Hard session. Just couldn't hang on and got gradually slower and slower. 3 min efforts paces were; 3:49, 3:51, 3:56, 3:56 and then the 15min pace averaged at 4:15. Faded badly. Ran in the 1600's.

Another 99% humidity day, weighed 71.7 when I left and 70.7 when I got back.

Two bags of ice post run and some chocolate milk. Haven't had an ice bath for a long time and was thinking I was due.

Saw a snake about 100m up from our house yesterday afternoon. I'm always worried about coming across them down in the national park, but here it was crossing the street. I was with dad who for some fucking stupid reason basically stopped the car over the top of the snake. By the time he reversed back, the snake had disappeared. Hopefully off into someone elses yard and not under the car. It was enough to give me nightmares about having a snake in the bed last night. Fucking snakes.

Two of our three chickens got killed by a fox last night as well. Fucking fox. Saw it on the back deck this morning. Life on the 'land'.
