Kitchen faucet sprung a bad leak yesterday and the orginal home owners did not install a hot water shut off under the sink. Plus I am not sure it could have been more cramped. Well new faucet, new shut offs, and some new lines. So I spent Saturday under the counter instead of running so I did my longer run today.

PM- 70º warm. 2 mile WU and then every other mile @ HMP. Splits 7:13, 7:08, 7:08, 7:13, 7:19, 7:19, 7:20. Rolling hills, not very steep, but enough to be noitced.

AM- 51º at the start and 55º at the finish. Sunny. Ideal temps for sure. The end of the run was tougher as a front rolled in and the last 10 were windy, very windy at times. Went with a staggered run. 5 W/U then 5 at MP to HMP range (7:35-7:20) then 5 Easy then 5 more MP to HMP (7:46-7:25) - The slowest mile was up a gradual hill with a brisk head wind, so just off the MP. I was fine with that. 4 Deer out early and quite a bit of wildlife. Quiet bike path until about half way through others started to come out and use the path. Around mile 9 there were several one man rowing boats in the river. These guys were training hard, I was on and off having run keeping pace with them. I was tempted to yell "ROW", but that is akin to people yelling "RUN FOREST RUN" to me. I hate that. :)

PM- 70º and sunny in North Carolina. Went out running from the hotel on crappy roads with traffic for a few miles and stumbled upon a gem! Found a nice park and path in Statesville that I did not know existed. I was able to turn this into a quality workout. 3 Mile WU. 6x1 Mile repeats with 1/4 mile active recoveries. 7:15, 7:33, 7:21, 7:12, 7:22, 7:24 So while not blazing, it was rolling hills on tired legs from traveling. I will take it.

AM- 52º Sunny. Great temps to run in. Went down to the park a little later than I wanted too, but that is the price of piddling around. Grabbed my fuel belt and started to run and realized I was very short on fuel, but at least I had plenty of water. Miles 1-15 MP (7:39ap) and The last 5 were slow, just did not have the energy to maintain MP. I was not totally spent so I am now mentally questioning if it was just a fuel issue, fitness issue or just one of those days. Eh, I traveled all week, glad to be home, I have a busy week of work this week, but I will make the time for extra miles.

AM- 44º and crisp. 3 WU and the 13 at MP. I am just putting too much effort to hit these miles. Indy might be just another marathon training run. However, I enjoyed the temps, the $1 gloves and 15 deer today. Really quiet day on the bike path and it was nice.
