AM: Series race at Mill Race Park.  Another series 5k on tis very familiar territory.  Jog from the house to park is about 3.5 miles down SR 11.  Decent morning weather wise - 60 degrees and fairly humid.  Some unknown high schoolers are there and a lot of familiar guys.

In about 5th place after 1/2 mile and some of the kids immediately start coming back.  We quickly seperate in ot top 3 and it looks like 1 nad 2 are going back and forth.  I close on them throughout the race and actually pass 2nd place with about 0.25 miles to go.  That punk passes me back and blows by :)  I ahve nothing left in the tank.  He puts about 5 sec onds on me in the kick and I am a distance 3rd.  

Course is long, so I turn in a good effort to go 3.2 in 18:27.

3PM Series Race on the other side of town.  Too much craft beer last night.  Hot and sunny as I left the house on the bicycle.  about 8-9 miles to the race.  The bike wound up being a good choice for doubling as WU and dealing with a serious hangover.  Jogged around for alittle bit and start the race.  Hang back a little bit and let myself work in to an LT effort without puking.  Led from about half mile on . 

5:45, 6:02, 6:09, :31.  Red Lining in the heat and felt awful the whole way.

AM Long Run: Its hot and humid and apparently I am depleted and somewhat dehydrated.  I start the run with a side stitch.  Work through that after about 30 minutes of sipping on water from the handheld.  Slooow going today.  I feel like I ahve stepped off the plane from sea level and tried to run a long run at about 10000 feet.  Take a tour of the close by nice neighborhood in and out of a bunch of cul desacs to distract myself.  I ate 3 gels, also !  The weight looks good  :)

6AM - TM at gym - 6x3:30 @ 10.4mph.  This is about goal 10k pace - give me a sub 36:00.  These were manageable, but, lots of sweat flying TM running is not gonna besame as the race in tis heat/humidity outdoors in 2 weeks.  Still - a good confidence builder.

8pm - Track Tues. - Part 2 of "double" - not sure effective these are as doubles since they are 12 hours apart anyway.  These had 2min. jogs btwn.

AM Relay for Life - Good cause to raise money for cancer at the Brown County High School track in Nashville, IN.  Start the day with a WU and 5k TT.  This was a failure.  It was pretty humid, but, not as hot as it has been.  Really no excuses this morning - I felt great for about 1.5 miles and then the same old stomach issues come back - I feel miserable and sick to my stomach the rest of the way and cannot pull out faster than 5:50 for the third mile.  5:39, 5:41, 5:52, and 1:05 for 0.19 partial.  Recovered from taht, jogged around a bit more and into a 400m TT for S&G.  1:00 flat... no comment.  Recovery for abit and alot of slow jogging around the track for the rest of the 6 hours.  Managed about 34 miles total for the day and pounded some Big Woods pizza afterward.

AM Series 5k Race: WU with jog over to race course, register and then ran course and added 4 or 5 strides in closer to race start.  Did a lot better gettingto the start line and not feeling the stomach issues.  Watched what I ate the last couple days and this morning and got a good amount miles in prior to race, with some strides.

REally felt at ease at start and watched the high school kids fly out (too fast) at the start.  Literally went from 5th to 1st in 0.25 after the 1 mile mark.  I wish the weather would have been this good last week when I time trialed at the track - about 65 degrees and overcast with lower humidity.  Didn't get hard until the hills started on mile 2 - splits:  5:42, 5:53, 5:35, 5:05 pace for the partial.

Did some cooldown, stuck around for awards, and on to 20 mile Long Run - 2:45:57 

30.35 total - A little over 4 hours
