AM: easy paced long run around town - made acouple bathroom break stops at Mcd's and Walmart but kept really comfortable and easy today.  Struggled with a sour stomach, though - beer and bad food don't agree with me and long runs or running in general right now.  Good weather - about 65 degrees at 10am start.

PM: recovery pace w/ 7xstrides/pickups at the end.  A little sluggish and full after pounding half a Papa Johns pizza less than an hour before running.  Nice summer evening here in Indiana - its been a record low temperature kinda summer here.  Great training!! :)  Feeling pretty good about where I am right now.  12mi. total - 1:42:00.  Did some legs and core work for about 15 minutes before running.

PM: Tues Track workout - 2x(800m, 2x400m, 2x200m) @ 5k pace.  Watch was doing the stupid thing with the bevel where it switches back and fourth when it gets sweaty - really, Garmin - did you not think the watch would get sweaty?

2:47, 1:30?, 1:22, missed a 200, 0:40,

2:44, 1:18, missed a 400, 0:40, missed a 200...

useless

5:30's should be doable... again, this is the feeling after another workout at this pace.  Okay, so we'll see what happens on Friday night, Saturday morning.

8 mi. total - about an hour.  Good beers, good friends, afterward.

PM: recovery pace long run from work to the house - Seymour to Columbus 20 mile.  Got a little cooked by about mile 17, but kept it under 8 minutes comfortably until then.

20 mi. - 2:39:40. 

So, Strava is pretty awesome:

early AM - slow 3.55 mi. over to car to try the spare key that the stupid, lieing car dealership gave us when they sold us my car - guess what?  it doesn't fit the lock and I couldn't even open the door. :(  3.55 mi. slow and steaming mad back to the house.  Oh well - pancakes and coffee, now.  

7.1 total at about 9 min. pace.  Pretty depleted from yesterday.

5k leg of the sprint tri in town - our relay is a non-competative coed, thankfully - so, no pressure.  5:42 first mile was too fast to maintain, apparently... again.  Pretty frustrated with 5k's right now.  The end
