Indy 500 Half in downtown Indy this morning.  Got there a little late and got in a little over a mile with some strides just in time to stand around and get ready to fight the crowd.  The crowd was an issue for the first half mile and then spread out.  Great weather anf course conditions - prime for a PR for most, with their PR fitness.  Training for ultra is not what gets me PRs in halves and shorter stuff apparently.  Starting to come to terms with that fact.  Backed down the pace after about 5k and settled in to something more in the MP range.  As a test, I put he pedal back down after some miles of MP.  railed off about 3 miles and cooled it back off for a less than spectacular 1:22:20.

AM - LR on trail in Brown County SP.  Checking for the trail clearing and conditions after all the storms.  Ran from the shelter half way up North Tower.  Out bike trails and over to Trail 8 and Trail 9.  There were only a couple down trees on Tr. 8 and a lot of mud.  Got pretty rough at the end, turned off on Green Valley without realizing it, but, it was good to get out for a longer time on feet.  23.4 miles - 4:16:25.  One handheld of water with 2.5 scoops of Tailwind was almost enough.

3 weeks out from Kettle M 100, 50 Miles was going to be too much.  Decided at the drop down point around 25 miles to drop down to 50k.  Probably a good choice.  The trails were pretty muddy and a lot of down trees still.  Missed a turn and added on about 1 mile again.  OVerall a fun time with all the Quaff people out running relays and other various distances.  31.2 miles at 50 mile pace/effort was a great final big long run.
