AM: Series race starting at Mill Race Park.  Jogged from the house to the park down SR 11 - 3.7 miles - 28:30.

5k race - decent go at it a week after marathon and just digging in to some good training days.

5:43, 5:49, 6:08, 6:55 pace for partial.  Alone in second place behind Luke and 1 minute or so ahead of the 3rd place guys. 5k race - 18:23.  Always fun at these series races with all the friends and familiar faces.  Really makes it worth while to show up even when I'm not in tip top shape.

On aside note, I started tracking the calories again to get the weight back down.

Jogged home afterward - 6.2 miles - 49:28

AM to early PM - Brown County State Park DWD course scouting.  Ran all 3 of legs with DAn Smith and Danny Webb.  Dan Smith met me for first leg - a very technical ex-ski slope 3 mile leg.  We saw a 6' black snake within the first mile.  Scouted some good spots to really save time by staying on ridges amd out of creeks , but, within the course flag markings.  Started pouring rain on us.  Ogle Lake leg is a loop around one of the lakes in the park - 1 real nasty climb, but, should be less than 20 minutes for entire segment.  3rd leg is also a loop with  one really bad climb, but, is also one I should really be able to knock out of the park with the decline back down and a long straight stretch.

AM - easy pace over to Walgreens from house for my health screening (required by work insurance coverage).  Numbers all pretty good - BP was way low, and pulse pretty low according to comments.  Walgreens checkout line had a poor old lady bartering about coupons or someting for 15 minutes while the line built up behind her.  Since I was right behind her filling up my handheld with the gatorade I had yet to pay for, a nice woman, who I am embarassed to say I did not remember her name, said she knew me from running, paid for my gatorade (empty bottle) and emphatically told me to "go run" !  That just made my day.  :) Beautiful day out - 70 degrees and sunny - shirtless running again.  That full gatorade emptied in to my handheld, was almost drained on the way home.  Also, consumed a clif bar in doctor's office after the health screening (had to fast for glucose up to that point).  I was literally starving! 

16.84 miles total - 2:23:56

PM: Brown County Workout with Danny and Danny - Probably some 5k pace type workout:

1,2,3,2,1,2,3,2,1 minutes - each at 5k pace/effort with an equal amt. of jog recovery on the rolling hills of the paved road in the BCSP.  Averaged about 5:30 pace, but, struggled with the last couple reps.

Nap time run to the bank - off work again today for kid's allergist appointment.  Food allergies with a kid really suck.  At 2 years old recheck/screening, Jude was allergic to dairy, eggs, wheat... and bunch of others.

Race: Dances With Dirt Relay (8.1 Miles) 00:00:00, Place overall: 1, Place in age division: 1

2.100.008.100.0010.20

Dances With Dirt Relay in Brown County State Park.  I have 3 of the shortest relay legs: My first leg is a loop around Ogle Lake - I am paired with running against another of the slower runners from the other team.  Our team is 4 minutes behind the other Quaff team at the start of my leg.   I am more than satisfied to cut about a minute off the lead.  5k effort and beyond on one long climb - 2.6 miles on trails and stairs - 20:38

Second leg is an out and back from the North Gate of the park.   Second leg for me is about leg number 9 overall, and we have taken the lead and pulled away to about a 4 minute gap.  Fortunately, I am paired with the same slower runner from the other team and again increase our lead by about a minute.  Big effort again with a long steep climb on trails and some stairs.  2.6 miles - 19:18.

Third Leg is the anchor leg - everybody else is already drinking beers.  We have about 5 minutes on the other team, but they have a much faster runner than me running the anchor leg.  I run scared the whole way and put in a huge effort.  I red line most of the way.  This leg starts close to the finish line.  Toughest leg of the day by far - up old ski slopes and 2 huge very steep climbs with some bush whacking.  2.86 miles - 27:19

Team Busted Knuckle wins again! :)

Quaff had a bunch of people running individual races today as well.  Congrats to Ron on winning the 50M unofficially.  He went off course and was DQed at some point.  Another Quaff girl was second and came in about an hour and half later.  50k winner strangely had the same story - Jeff Yoder won, but went off course and was DQed.

Seymour Half Marathon.  65 degrees with some windy spots and high humidity.  Everybody suffered today, but, I really sucked!

Set out at goal pace (6:07) and felt comfortable around there for first 5k.  Then, this funny thing that happens with my knee sometimes started happening again.  It feels like its giving out and then it will stiffen up suddenly and my leg will go straight.  Mostly it stays in this very uncomfortable loose state that really has my body and other leg flailing all over the place.  This continued off and on from about mile 4 to mile 8 before I just stopped at the aid station.  I did some quick stretching and chugged some gatorade.  That problem stoppped and did not come back.  This was probably only because I could not manage to get pace back below 6:20 for the remainder of the race.

Late AM LSD - 3 hour long run.  Pretty humid and warm, but, not as hot as yesterday.  Enough wind to stay fairly cool.  Pretty slow the whole way.  Stopped to pee a couple times, stopped after 2 hours at local brewery to try meet Luke for birthday Beer.  Guess it got cancelled - nobody showed up. Chugged my beer and left.  Finished up the last hour and felt decent. Consumed 2 gels a handheld of water and a honey wheat beer.

AM: Race 1 of the triple today. 

Before that...

Ran home last night from work and left car at office.  Had intended on running back in and switching the summer goals to running an ultra (50M)... goals change pretty quickly for me, and depend what mood I'm in that day! :)  Yes - I'm a freaking wierdo, as my wife will tell you.

I felt pretty rough this morning from Long Run depletion yesterday.  I figured if I could handle a double LR pretty well, I would start down the ultra training path, but, decided on biking to Seymour and going for a decent 5k time.  Still on the fence about switching to ultra.  Current week and last couple weeks has been geared toward a 10k / 5k cycle.  I start making deals with myself when I get to switching midstream like this.  I think this morning may have been a deal breaker, since I could not muster the mentality/energy to LR back to back... to be continued.

Race went well.  Was pleased to discover that zero out of about 10 faster dudes were not participating this year.  Went out on my own in 1st and stayed there.  Controlled mile 1 at 5:50ish left me with gas in the tank to lay down 5:40 and 5:40ish for miles 2 and 3.  Decent kick in to finish at about 5:20 pace.  There was one guys about 10 seconds back, so, close enough to scare me into finishing hard.  Red line from turn around at half way point up through finish.  3.10 GPS for 17:42

PM1: Race 2 is a 2x2mi. loop in the grass at Ceraland (park) across town at 1pm.  4mi. Trail - 25:00.  Got to the race a little late and didn't have quite as much WU time as I would have liked.  The course was 2 loops around a field at a very popular park across town.  Cera Land has everything from a driving range to go carts.  Pretty cool place.  Race was similar to am 5k - solo the whole way.  5k ish Effort to hang with 6:20 pace.  Splits were - 6:19, 6:20, 6:18, 6:09. 

PM2: Race 3 was a 1mile grass 2xloop in the same place.  Went home to help mommy for a little bit between the races.  So, got back to park at about 4:20.  Jogged a couple miles with some strides to WU.  Pretty hot at this point (at 5pm)  - about 85 degrees.  Two loops around an area of the same field as the earlier race.  Same kind of race - I don't hear anybody behind me after about 400m.  1mile in the grass with some rollers and spots to turn an ankle if not careful.  The effort was definitely there and I'm not even looking my watch throughout.  I am surprised to see 5:21 on the clock as I cross... 1 mi. - 5:21.  Not sure waht that means... Fun day - cookout and beers provided after this final race.

2.610.008.650.0011.26

AM: Trail "15k" race in Brown County State Park.  Part of an Indiana trail run and bike series.  Fortunately, the trails are very familiar from lots of previous BCSP runs and races.  Al ot of familiar faces at the race as well.  I notice that not too many people are hopping up to the front of the start as we get ready to go.  The rae starts with a healthy climb and most of everybody is aware and being conservaitve.  I find myself in about 10th, but, aaftera hlaf a mile, the crowd thins out and I'm about 6 or 7.  2 other guys in front of me figure out that they are a little overzealous over the next few miles, and allow me to pass and immediately drop off.  

Again, I am solo for about 4-5 miles of the race.  The frustrating part is that I discover (too late) that I am very close to catching 3rd place.  around the 8 mile mark and getting very close to finish line, I trip on a root and bite it hard.  My left side and hip and thumb on my right hand break my fall.  As I get up the thumb immediately starts throbbing.  Fortunately, it turns out to be a strain of some sort and no breaks are evident.  I come out of the wooded area to the clearing where the finish line is and see the 3rd place guy about 200m in front.  Too bad - not enough left to catch him, though it might have been pretty close had I not face planted.

TH effort most the race.  recovered well after climbs and felt strong on the downhills.  8.65 miles - 1:03:42 

WU and CD were slow jogging on trails and waiting in bathroom.

30k Long Run - feeling not 100% consistently throughout - cut down a little bit near the end and found a cool new little trail on the other side of town.  Had to stop to pee twice and ate some gels and drained a watered down gatorade. 

Through town and on People Trails most of the way.  18.32 miles total - 2:14:30
