easy 40 minutes before the interview this morning.  4.3 miles on the Pensy trail in Greenfield

Interviewed for the Greenfield CPMD position.  I don't think it went very well.  I just get silly and say stupid things when I get nervous. drive back to SY for the rest of the work day. 

Went tot the County fair with kids and Tiff.  Very hot!  and I ate 2 Pineapple whips 

late night run - easy and very slow, but somewhat sick from fair food.  3.1 miles - 30 min.  

New Hoka Cliftons are nice and coushy.

AM Long Run: 5, 4, 2 miles at MP: IT got too hard to compelte the planned 54321.  I was working really hard and nt feeling to great aerobiaclly on the last miles of each 5 and 4. 2miles was cutting short the 3mile rep, after really getting deep in to the well to maintain 6:45 pace.  Guess I'm not as far along as I thought.  23.3 miles total - 3:02:50.  Soakedin the warm bath, and took a nap.

That helped to recover.  The family went for a hike in borwn county after my nap.  Trail A (horse trail).  About 0.75 miles into the 2 mile loop (down and back up), we had a close encounter with a pissed off timber rattler.  Crazy!  With probably thousands of trail miles logged, this was the closest I have ever come to a rattle snake encounter/bite.  Fortunatley, it rattled very loudly, and was about 15-20 feet away.  I did catch a glimpse of it enough to see how big it was.  about 5-6 feet, and a pretty impresive girth.  We high-tailed it back the opposite direction.
