PM: track Tuesday - Timed mile tonight with 4x400m afterward @ mile pace.  WU with some pickups, strides, and second guessing f how I would actually do with a mile.  1 mile - 4:58 !  Had another guy going for sub-5 and a pacer to help, but, officially broke that barrier down.  Lap splits were about as even as they could be until the last lap.  That's where I amde up the 2 seconds to dip under.  The other guy smoked me and ran a 4:53, so that helped pull me along.  4x400m afterward at mile pace felt easy after that.

AM - 10k "A" race in Madison IN - the race is a point to point and finishes in downtown Madison. Mile 4.3 thru 5.4 is a huge downgrade (~6.3% avg.).  60 degrees and low humidity, with a good portion of course in the shade - ideal conditions.  Running on brand new Ravenna 5's.  A crazy start line spread out across aparking lot nad then condenses in to a sharp right turn about 0.1 miles ahead.  That was interesting - was in about 50th place at that point.  It thinned as it normally does by about mile 2.  Running in 5th and 6th place with an older guy that I have run with before.  Found myself barely hanging on to this solid 50 year old. We stayed around 5:50 pace, but required a good effort from me to hang with 50YO after 3 miles.  He pulled away at about 4mi., right before the big hill, I gained back a little at the bottom of the hill, but then he stayed about 30m in front through the finish - the hill sucked away the kick in my legs.   Fun race - finish in downtown Madison.  Def. aided, but a PR and good effort for me.

AM easy run around the neighborhood before work.  Dark skies with a lot of heat lightning made for a cool little jog this morning. 5.09 mi. - 44:52

PM: Track Tuesday - big group, warm weather, kids on infield for football practice sitting in lane 1.  workout was 12x300m @ mile pace w/ 100m rec. jog.  At 5:00/mile pace, this workout became difficult quickly after rep 7 - 59, 59, 59, 57, 57, 57, 60, 60, 59, 61, 62, 62.  The short jogging rest made these tough.  Hot, humid, and sunny was a big difference from this morning's weather.

4:30am Long run - easy pace and the temp is in the 50s.  Dark most of the way and the County has decided to chip seal the roads (seemed like every road along my route), so loose gravel everywhere.  Even with headlamp on super bright mode this morning, cars seemed to be having trouble spotting me until they were pretty close.  Got alittle scary a couple times.

Had to duck in to a more sparsely populated area of a corn field for a pit stop - gross, but necessary.  20 mi. - 2:36:17.  Still noticing a couple nagging spots, mostly on left leg.  Stopped at Walmart for some nanas and protein drink.  The cup pot of coffee I'm drinking at work is wonderful this morning.

AM: long(ish) run with 10x0.5mi. MP w/ 1min. rec. jog. Continuous run - 4miles from house over to track, in to the 0.5 mile repeats: 3:10, 3:06, 3:07, 10, 05, 13, 12, 09, 09, 07.  As is usual with these type workouts, the first 5 or 6 were easy and a bit faster than shoulda been, and then I paid the price on the last couple.  One day I'll figure out how to pace correctly on these things.  It got super hot very quickly - started out the door shocked at how warm it was and was surprised how hot I got by the the time I had reached the track.

PM2: A storm blew through quickly and was gone by 8pm - worked out great - the nasty hotness was all gone and a light drizzle accompanied 75 degrees for a nice easy 8 miler - again, about 8min/mil average - 63:54.  Today again with the changes in weather.

PM: easy 10 mi. afterwork - great weather and definitely feeling depleted - just no good diet choices has really taken a toll on energy levels, although seemed to feel a little better near the end, so maybe a worked out some of the badness.  Lots of bikers on the trails and along the route today.

PM:  Great weather again this evening - 65 degrees and pretty sunset.  Some sort of tempo/race pace type running needed to happen toady, but not anything too serious - really want a 5k PR on Saturday.  I recently discovered the wonderful world of Strava and its segments/challenge type funtionality.  I found a popular segment with some people I knew from around town that were on the leader board, and went after it.  5:20 pace for 1.7 mi. was the segment CR.  That little segment happened to fall in the middle of one of my usual 10 milish loops.  Struggled abit near the emd, but, 1.75 mi. LT - 9:02 for a new segment record.

Felt strong most of the run, especially after a short recovery after the LT effort - 10.05 mi. total - 1:11:42

Did some strength stuff - core and legs stuff before run this evening.  Jude likes when daddy uses him as a weight for lifting over his head at the top of squats and lunges :) - about 20 minutes worth

AM: Series 5k Race across town - Really wanted to go for it today.  WU with a couple miles and some strides.  Plan was a 17:29 today - start with 5:35 and go from there.  I felt fine through the first mile and then was promptly passed by some guy I had never seen before.  As he slowly pulled away, I felt myself really lose focus and started worrying more about staying with him, than what my pace should be feeling like.  So, he pulled me in to a 5:30 mile 2.  I never saw this split on my watch, because I was already distracted with the amount of self doubt that had already crept in.  He was well ahead, and I thought I had really justfallen apart, and I did after that - 5:58 for last mile.  Followed up with a pretty weak kick, gasping for air and form flailing all over the place, I struggled in 18:05.  So much for PR today. 

Pretty frustrated with 5k's this year - huge 10k and 1mi. PR 2 weeks ago - both corresponding to about 17:15 in 5k, and the ability to stick with several guys in track workouts who run under 17min. 5k consistently... Why shouldn't I expect something in the low to mid 17's every time I run a flat 5k?  IDK.  At least there are plenty more opportunities.

AM Long Run: 60 degrees and foggy this morning at 8:30a when I left.  Felt pretty good weather wise to start - sun came out about 2hrs in to the run and heated things up immediately.  Started off pretty sore and tired in the legs.  Feeling a little heavy at the start.  Easy 7 mi. over to Mill Race Park for some MP/AT loops in a nice mostly shaded park - its a net zero approximate mile loop around the park street, through the covered bridge and back across sidewalk to the park entrance.  workout was goin to be 3x3mi. AT/MP.  First one was a bit slow, second felt a little too strained, but was on MP, and also carried over in to the last rep where I tried to hammer it and was in the 6:40's by mile 2 with some heat building as the sun came out, and shut it down.

3mi. AT - 6:31, 6:36, 6:37, 5 min. rec. jog,

3mi. MP - 6:28, 6:32, 6:25, 7 min. rec. jog

2mi. MP - 6:20, 6:41, shut it down - got hot and well out of AT zone,

7 mi. back home - felt pretty solid after a mile or so recovery pace post workout loops

23.19 mi. total - 2:51:00

PM: easy bike ride across town and back to return a movie.  Enjoyable ride - 17mi. - 1:07:27

(2:45, 51, 51, 48, 46, 47, 45). Very hot - 90 degrees really played havoc with me on the last 2 reps.  1 mi. WU, 5 mi. CD easy jog with some of the other people - they showed me a brand new part of the People Trail system that I had never known to exist - awesome - probably the best prtion of the trail in the city.

PM: easy run up to Menards and back.  Wore hydration pack and carried some small items to return for refund.  As soon as I stepped out the door, it started raining.  Fortunately the return items stayed dry.  I didn't ofcourse, but it actually was pleasant - nice and refreshing if not for the pack irratating rubbing. 

Started the conversation with the Quaff people about Badwater135... wow.  Anybody on here (who happens to read my blog) ever done that crazy thing?  Having only completed a 50 miler, I'm thinking I have alooong way to go training and planning wise before even considering this as a reality.

Anyway, 9.2mi. - easy 78:3x

PM2: easy 7 miles to get 100 for the week - 60:53.  Barely beat the storm.  A couple lightning flashes on the way home moved me along.  5 pieces of papa johns pizza in your stomach make you slower.

AM: Long Run afterthe storms blew thru - still 70 degrees and light drizzle when started.  10am: house to start of Tipton Sprint Tri bike course to run the rerouted alternate course.  The county has decided to chip/seal the roads on the bike route the last 2 years right beforeth race.  Very hilly and lots of blind cirves/ hills, but pretty course.  turned in to a harder effort near the end of the run to get down around 7 minute range.  Up hill efforts on some of the climbs were pretty tough with severe grades.  20 miles total - about 7:30 pace average, but different levels of effort with the hilly terrain - 2:33:44.  Carried a gel and and a water bottle with gatorade mix - I need to practice this mundane detail - for some reason, the nutrition part has really started playing havoc with my runs.

PM: 22 miles bike - tour of triathlon bike course on the bike with Matt, Nathan, Nathan's bro Aaron.  Fun ride - got rained a little bit, but got the whole course in and trip from house back to house from start line.
