Starting temp 49, DP 25; ending temp 54, DP 24. Bright sunshine; wind from NW at 18 MPH with gusts to 25; pollen of 10.3
Parked at Hains Point and did loops for the 2x5. There was a race going on and the gates were closed (plus the little gate bypass on the Potomac side). I ended up doing loops anyway, and just pausing my Garmin for the time to walk past each gate.
Splits were: 35:24 (7:04/7:06/7:10/6:57/7:07) and 34:47 (6:54/7:03/7:11/6:48/6:51); 1 mile float in 8:08 (upwind) in between). The wind sucked.
Breakfast was rice, hemp powder, and smores and salted caramel GUs - sat well. Took half a Chai Latte GU between the two intervals. Carried water but didn't need much.
Breathing was very good - Advair 250/50 and Qvar.
Wore ankle braces. L/R balance at 47.6/52.4
