AM- 53º 9.33 Oddly enough I want it to be hotter. I am looking to run a June marathon and do not want to train in nice weather and have the race in hot weather. I did not eat yesterday and yet tried to do some speed this morning. Wonder why I petered out the last 3 miles. AP 8:05 

PM- 53º 4 Much better legs after work, but the bike path was nearly empty!  AP 7:50

44º Long sleeves and gloves, its kinda humorous. Easy run w/ Striders- 13@20s, 4:50-6:40ish efforts. My slow runs are ever so slighty faster on the average.

53º at the start and in just over 2 hours ended at 65º - Good run, but mixed feelings at the end due to fueling. I tried a new brand of gu, chia - supposed to be better for you, good for the belly.... well hogwash... the stuff almost made me puke. I MAYBE got 1/8th of it down at mile 10. This left me reaching for more by the end of the run. Either way, it was a good day, lots of people out. Rowing team by the river, big group at the 'bike hub', 2 people fishing, a large bike group doing a 25 mile ride as well as baby ducks and hissing geese. 

Goal was to run the last 10 at MP pace or better. I was feeling good so I did the last 12. 6 Mile warmup and then 7:47, 7:36, 7:34, 7:31, 7:37, 7:36, 7:40, 7:32, 7:31, 7:27, 7:45, 7:00. I needed fuel.

PM- 74º muggy. I wanted some warm weather to train in to toughen me up. Sometimes you should be careful what you wish for. Ran 7 tempo miles in the middle of the run, 7:19 AP. Pace was what I wanted, but I should have done more, but my legs were just tired today.

AM- 61º Recovery run, 5 miles. Very dead legs. 

PM- 78º Humid. 8 Easy. Roads to bike path where is was very very quiet tonight. Almost too quiet. Legs better than this morning, but still a bit tired. No deer, but a chipmunk on caffeine and roids wanted to race me.

AM- 55º and that cool breeze was nice. Striders 11@20s 3k+ pace. Peaceful morning, wrapping up around the time the school kids were walking. Today they were a pleasant group as almost all waved or said hello. I thought maybe I reverted back to the 1950's, because usually they do not even make eye contact.

48º light rain and some serious wind. Easily 15 MPH sustained with some big gusts. Not as many people out as I expected with the cooler temps. However 3 deer, baby rabbits, 3 rowing teams all decided to join me today. It was the first time I noticed the coach was in a motorboat. huh, just like track coaches often get to ride the bike. Why did I listen to a gym teacher 100 pounds overwight I'll never know. Anyway, today was more about steady miles than fast ones. 8:20ap for the majority and mile 22 @ 6:43 (I was surprised I had the legs for that one).

AM- 38º More wind. Broke out gloves and a long sleeve shirt for this one. 8 Miles, slow. 

Afternoon- 60º Did I mention wind? Getting what I can in now. Heading to Oklahoma for work, will be in Tulsa the next few days so I will run when I can - maybe sandwiched in by really short ones. We will see.

Afternoon escape while in Tulsa. 73º, warm and windy. 2 mile warm up in some very dangerous side road runnung. Set off to do 6, 1 mile repeats, but conditions and trails did not lend to that as I eventually ended up a Turkey Hill here. Wow. There are trails and there are trails. I think Joe would like these. Mile 1 was a 6:50, but after that I hit the rocks and all bets were off. I just ran as hard as I could for that period.

I signed up for a smaller 5K at the request of some friends. I wanted some racing anyway so it wasn't like I did not want to do it anyway. At the beginning of the week I was thinking PR. After Thursday's flu/food episode I did not think I would make it at all. Well I showed up despite being weak, not much food in days and 0 miles since Wednesday. I thought if I could finish a minute slower than my PR I would be OK with that, and that is exactly what I did. Good temps at 57, BUT windy, raining and puddles took a bit away from the favorable temps. Splits: 6:28, 6:32, 6:50 (6:42 for .11) 

Now that I am home I am not feeling the best so maybe I should have rested instead, but I was happy to finish 1st even though it was a small field. I will put the gift cards to good use.

AM 64/76º by end, all sunshine. Just a bit sticky,  and decided to try a new workout. It seemed a bit different, but what the heck. Started my run and my legs and body are still just drained. Everything was an effort. Hope that I bounce back soon. 3.6 Mile w/u. Then 3x20s Striders @ 5k+ pace. Followed by 6 Miles at MP pace. I avg'ed 7:39/mile so right on. OK since I was in a headwind and did not feel strong. Then 10 minutes at a super slow pace (11-13/mile) - the goal is to get your body to fatigue and feel done. Then 5 More miles at MP, it is supposed to similate late marathon miles. Well my legs DID feel that way. I am not sure if it was the workout or just me. I held on and avg'ed another 7:39/mile. 1 Mile cool down. I honestly do not know how I feel about it, but happy its done.

PM- 80º Recovery run. Did some new trails, Charleston Falls - outer loop. I should have guessed falls = hills. More than I intended for a recovery, but it was all good. And hot.

70º/96% Sunshine. I started my run a little after sunrise instead of before today. Took the extra hour of sleep since I have a job interview today with a new company... which means I go in late to work with my current job. Odd when I think about it too much. 

8 Easy, 13x20s Striders @ 3ksih pace. Wet.

69/70%/wet at the start. After the sun came up it was draining, but that is what I really want to train in anyway. Saw 3 deer including a young 2 point buck, a big ol snapping turtle right next to the bike path, about 8 bunnies including 2 half the size of my shoe. Effort was there for the run, so even though my legs are still tired I am OK with it. 5 Mile w/u, then 13 (MGP 7:39) splits were 7:35, 7:22, 7:28, 7:29, 7:26, 7:31, 7:34, 7:36, 7:33, 7:23, 7:27, 7:35, 7:35 That's a 7:30 avg in the sunshine. 2 Mile c/d.

Went to KY over the weekend for the holiday. Enjoyed cooking out, cornhole and smores. Lots of smores. yum. Got home tonight and went for a slow run. 85º/33%- slow run. Weird part is I had 2 MP miles 7:23, 7:38 and I was just running, not trying. I would like it to be that easy all the time.
