New week. Last week was rough. Ended up with Bronchitis and a Sinus Infection. Took off 4 days running and forced a few runs in thinking I could power through. I was wrong. I am not sure how I am getting sick, but it happened. Antibiotics are starting to work and I ran without massive coughing today so I will take that as a perk. Afternoon run 85º hot. A few fast miles to see if my breathing could handle it and I was OK. Not great, but OK. Hopefully I can get back to logging some serious miles and be ready for the fall race schedule.

Went ahead and did the July 4th 5k. I know my lungs were not a 100% so I wasn't expecting any PRs. To my surprise I won my age group. Considering 1098 runners and the vast majority competitive that was a shock. I got lucky with who showed up in my age I suppose. Still I was pleased with my effort coming off the bronchitis. Then home and a 4th party with food, fireworks, friends and fun!

AM -70º/99%/70dp before sunrise run. Woke up around mile 3. Very much out of it, but starting to feel normal again and very happy about that as I can return to real training.

Back home from working... next week more travels as I take my youth group on our yearly history trip. I can't seem to get in a groove. AM- 79º.... Yes Ohio 79º at 5AM... 92%/77DP. Needless to say a very wet run. Legs were heavy, need to get some good workouts in soon if I hope to have a good fall season.

AM- Cooled off some! 63º, humid and sunny- but much better than it has been. There were some local 5 and 10k's as well as century bike race.... so the bike path was QUIET. I liked it. Did see some rowing teams out practicing along the river.

Finally back home after a incredible history trip. I lead my youth group every year on a week+ long trip on the Christian foundations of our country. This year was Virgina with stops at Mount Vernon, Monticello, St Johns Church, Yorktown and Williamsburg. Weather was brtually hot with 90's all week and 99 Thursday and 100 Friday. I ran very little, but got out when I could. 

Home and back to work. AM and refreshing 66º  8+miles, time to get consistent.

AM- Wonderful 59º 8 miles. Just steady. 

PM- Not as wonderful wet 85º - Switchback trails, tough running, orange loop x2, pushed it. Good run.

AM- Nice cool 62º which was welcome relief even with the 98% humdity. Legs were just out of sync and I was rushing so I would not be late to VBS. I am mentally struggling with my running. Not getting the miles in I need and no real speedwork at all. I have to get my mind right. I have plenty of excuses with travel and work, but I can get up earlier and make it happen.
