early PM: easy bike to walmart and back for some diapers and chocolate.  14 mi. ~55min.

PM: run over to Mill Race Park through a nice shady neighborhood and back - easy pace.  Lots of people going to the fair at the fairgrounds who like to yell at runners apparently.  Hot and sunny today - feeling the miles...

PM track workout: Hot! - 90 degrees all day, cooled off to 85 in time for the run.  It is certainly reflected in the times...

2 x [1mi. / 0.75mi. / 0.5mi.] w/ active 0.25 mi. jog recovery + 4x100m

6:00, 4:22, 2:49 // 5:55, 4:23, 2:47 // 15,15,16,15

Again the effort was there, but not the kind of times I'm looking for - I blame the heat... :)

10 mi. total - 1:15

This race technically started at 11:58 pm according to my Garmin, so its on Friday :)

WU - 1.5 mi. w/ strides and a couple of bathroom visits... late night race, weird stomach feeling. 

Ran about as even as I have run splits in a 5k.  This was a competitive local race with lots of high school kids running.

Mile 1 - I was in about 20th place, but at a comfortable pace - 5:42

Mile 2 came a little harder, but still feeling strong.  I've passed about 8 of the people I will pass by now - 5:39.  Me and another guy are battling for 9th place for the last half of the race, and I start having GI problems when I see the lights of the high school track where the finish is.

Mile 3 is a difficult effort and the kick around the track has me feeling like I'm not going to make it without an accident :(

I manage a 5:41 mile 3 and 0:32 for 0.11mi. for 10 th place - the youngster blew past me on the backstretch.  Oh well its a PR - without the sickness, its a sub 17:30! :)  Very happy with the result this evening.  CD - 0.8 mi. jog with a couple of the guys.

5k Race - 17:34

early PM long run: 21.36 miles at easy pace - felt very relaxed until literally the last mile.  Part of the Mill Race Marathon course without the neighborhoods turns that I don't really know yet. 

about 75 degrees and sunny - lots of people out today - ran passed some bag piep players and made a couple laps back around to hear them as much as possible :)

21.36 miles - 2:50:08.  This is the amount of time I hope to be "on my feet" in fall marathons this year...

soaked in the neighborhood pool for about 5minutes right after.  Icing and good food rest of the day.  Check out the weight!
