Made the trip down to Lexington Sunday for nephews BDay on Sunday and to visit with my mom on Mon., Tues., and to run in Bluegrass 10k downtown.  5.3 easy AM miles around my moms place out by Fayette Mall.  A nice park with a paved loop about 1 mi. away.  Shilito PArk brought back some memories.

7:30 am race, met Nathan and his awesome run group at Triangle Park.  Those awesome guys gave me a shirt and picked my packet!  "Good Times" indeed!  Great to run with them and chat with them.

Race itself was humid and an absolute struggle to hang on to ~6min. pace.  Really not in any kind of shape for 5k's and 10k's honestly.  stuck with it and forced a couple of sub-6 miles on aided sections.  37:44 for 21st place was good for today, given current fitness.

AM series race in Freetown, IN (aka - BF).  Arrived to lone gas station in town to discover no ATM or bathroom.  luckily, Danny paid for the race entry .

Warmed up jogging and some strides.  Tractors literally backed out into the road and nearly ran over all of us close to the start line after the race started.  Pretty sure the A-holes intentionally did this...

Anyway, the race was okay.  Humidity off the charts, and probably carrying a couple pounds of the poor diet over the last week around with me.  5:50, 6:00, and a horrible 6:20 split on a slightly uphill last mile.  3rd place finish in 18:34. 

Jogged a cool down after

LR - started at 7:30a, in some mild temp., but sky-high humidity.  Road running on PplTrail.  Planned out and back to 450N brewery on pvmt. / county roads, turned sour around 25 miles.  Ran out of tailwind laced drink in w2 handhelds and only had water.  That probably had something to do with it.  Lesson learned on that one.  Carry more calories.  Cut the distance a bit short of the planned 40 mile goal and walk jogged final ~10 miles.  37.1 miles - 6:08:50.

AM - LR on trails with Zane and Christian Wagner.  8am start, but, was already 82 degrees and ridiculous humidity.  Hung in there for about the first 2 hours and then really struggled to walk and jog up hills.  Hit some road to make it back to the car.  Draining, hard run.  We all suffered a whole lot.  Lots of water stops.  Horseflies feasted on me almost the entire time in woods.  Did bump in to several of the guys out on trails.  19.7 miles - 3:10ish

AM - Long Run - Grand View out and back.  Stopped around 5 miles and went number 2 in the fine corn fields of CR "x".  Shortly there after, started in to the loop around Grand View as a storm rolled in.  Got poured on for about 30 minutes, and enjoyed watching the lightning not hit me.  20.5 miles pretty slow, but, much less suffering than esterday's humid hell.

AM: Long Run - 31.2 miles in 4:40:06.  All Road, but a good amount of climbing Youth Camp out and back, with 2xGrand View Loops in the middle.   Left foot really hurting on the bottom.  Is this plantar fasci ?  1 stop in the woods, and ran out of water in the 2 handhelds carrying.  Very good weather - 60 degrees and breezy for most of the run.  Got a little warm at the end.  Fortunately, a hose was available at one of new neighborhoods under oncstruction.
