400m/800m competitively in track in high school.  Took 15 years off. Started running again in 2010.  Married to my beautiful wife, Tiffany, with 2 little boys, now 4 and 6.  I'm a civil engineer working for the Indiana DOT in Seymour, IN.   I live in a slightly larger town about 20 miles north - Columbus, IN.  Originally from Lexington, KY.

PM Track Workout: 90 deg. and sunny.  WU jog over to track - where there is now a full blown construction zone all around the track - dust and equipment everywhere.

Anyway, it felt hot today, and I felt tired at the beginning of the workout.  The results reflect this:

2 mi. WU - 15:57,

8 x 0.5 mi. w/ 0.25 mi. rec. jog

3:05/2:00, 3:02/2:00, 3:00/1:56, 3:01/2:04, 3:03/2:08, 3:04/2:25, 3:00/2:25, 3:02

rec. 0.3 mi.,

0.25 mi. - 1:08,

CD 2.34 mi. - 23:04

10.62 mi. total 

This was a far cry from the 10x800 I did a couple weeks ago - the effort was there today, not the results.

Nice hilly race - CR Series 5k, another 4th place finish - First mile too fast - 5:30.  

5:30, 6:00ish, 6:15ish :(  When the race timer tells you before not to be expecting a PR on this course, you know you're in for a treat! :)

It was also about 80-90% sauna like conditions with the 70 degree temp.
