AM - easy 10 k around the neigborhood prior to a very full day - about an hour. 

Inspection of new house for 3 hours, followed by developer/seller walkthrough for an hour, followed by a drive to louisville for the grandma's funeral.  95 years old, 80 years in louisville.  Outlived 8 siblings.  Survived by 5 kids, a bunch of grandkids, and quite a few great grand kids.  Great lady - generous and very religious.  

PM 5k Race in Flatrock - 7pm start.  Very hot and humid.  Pretty poor performance - 18:29 with massive positive splitting going on: 5:42, 5:5x, 6:0x.  Apparently, a lot of long running doesn't help 5k fitness.

Late AM failed Long Run.  Plan was for 5 hours / 55k.  humid and about 80 degrees for start.  Storms threatening, but, never really happened throughout the run.  Felt pretty tired and horrible for most of the run after 10 miles.  Slogging at 9 minute miles and still struggling.  Did not have any of the caffenaited gels I've been using, so I am blaming that and a hard effort in a hot 5k race last night for the workout fail for today.  4 hours for 25.3 miles, inclusive of walking at the end.  Struggle mode.  Very dehydrated even though I was slamming water and refilled bottle probably 4 times.  Had a homemade salty pretzel, raisin, and banana Quaker cereal bar broken up and mixed together.

We got our entire house moved in about 30 hours.  Returned the Uhaul at 9am this morning and ran on over to the race.  AM Series Race in town: 5k on a very flat fast course.  No expectations since I ahev been really focusing on Long runs and the Ultra Training.  Pretty good for 2 miles at 5:45ish and then fell apart.  Mile 3 was around 6 min. and finished 2nd to a guy I woul crush in any of the previous 4 years of training cycles right now.  (Ran 17:28 last year, which would've been about 30 seconds faster than 1st place guy).  That's been a difficult pill to swallow, but, I chalk it up to all the long runs.  Run over and run back home from race.  About 13 total.

AM series Race in Brownstown. Out and back in Jackson Fairgrounds.  Somebody stirred up a hornet's nest and lots of folks got stung!  That was an interesting twist during the race.  Slow racing is a norm for me these days. 19 minutes fel t hard... oh well.  ran hill sprints and sprints afterward.  Also, ran to bars later in the night and then ran home.
