AM Buildup Run:

12mi. - wanted to buildup to MP and keep the pace moderate and ease back down near the end of the run.  My left leg - knee, mostly - started really bothering me with about 4mi. left, so I backed off.

Total -- 1:25:10   Icing the rest of the day.

3.65 miles easy around the 'hood, dawg :) - about 30 min.

I'll be starting in Corral "L" for Chicago on Sunday.  Wave 2 starting at 8:00.  My name will be Jeff Mitchell - nice to meet you...

9 mi. easy on bike - I'm really trying to take it easy.  Pretty sure my left knee isn't going to cooperate for the busy fall running schedule I have planned. :(

First cold weather race - I struggled with this one.  No excuses - weather was fine, and the course was flat.  I think the big factor here is that I do not really train for these 5k's - I use these 5k's as training for marathon?... 

I was really pushing after mile 1 to maintain 6:00/mile.  I think I was 5:3x for mile 1 and over 6:00 for mile 2 and 3...

Chicago Marathon on Sunday :)
