5:30 am to gym in Col. - TM Long Run w/ 9mi.AT cutdown.  Started with a very slow first 65 minutes (this is when TM shuts off including the "CD" period) working through some very bad dietary decisions yesterday.  Ate a gel and turned on some head phone music as the second rotation of Sports Center came on.  Cranked it up during second 65 up to 9mph.  Feeling a lot better, I worked up to MP for about last 3-4 miles of cutdown.  Ate another gel near the end and feeling much better about life.

20 miles total - 2:35:30

AM Series race over at Lincoln Park in Columbus.  Ran over - 6.7 miles slow.  Bathroom break at hospital and on to race reg site.  Registered and on to WU with some strides.  about 40 degrees and overcast.  I struggle with this race every year. No exception this year.  4 guys in the lead group at 5:45 pace for the fist 2 miles and then top 3 guys pulled from me.  Just no energy or (motivation?) to hang with them.  About 5 seconds seperation between me and next guy and between him and leaders.  18:15 for 4th.  Jogged home slowly - 6.4 miles and staring to warm up a little bit.
