4:30am track workout - for the record and spoiler alert - I used the bathroom before leaving to run.

2mi. jog over to track w/ 4 straightaway strides,

8x0.5mi. LT - these were slow and painful today and I had to stop to use the bathroom (with no bathroom in sight) after rep no. 4... :(  not pleasant. 

2:49, 50, 51, 48, 50, 53, 55, 55, 55 - 2:51 average

I can probably attribute slow and sluggishness to GI problem and a solid effort on Monday morning without adequate rest time...

jog back home.

 

PM - super slow in the heat (95 degrees) 5.77mi. - 51:36

At work today - HuHot buffet... I overate.  legs and abs at work.  Feeling sluggish when I got home. Played with the baby a while and then popped a caffeine GU to pep up.  Went out for the 10-12 sheduled for the day expecting krap.  The caffeine GU was just what I needed - I'll have to remember that trick for the future.  Last 3 miles threw in some hill strides/sprints (7 of them - ranginf from 10 - 20 seconds) on Terrace Lake Dr.  Much cooler this evening also.  10 mi. - 1:19:10  -- feeling alot better than before I ran tonight.  Long MP run on Saturday morning and its time to really taper!!  Can't believe its already here.

Oh yeah, and I signed up for Indy Mon. Full on Nov. 2! - see you guys there :)
