AM- 72° and went from cloudy to sunny half way through. The humidity and dew point were not very oppressive so that was in my favor despite it being too warm and wet for me. Lots of bikers out today as I did a different route today. 

20 Miles. Underpass to county line to Kyle Park to Troy to the golf course and back. 2 Mile warm up and then 7 miles subMP, 2 mile cool down and then intervals. 11x 540m (roughly 1/3 of a mile) with 60 second active recoveries. Woof. That was challenging. That left me with a little under 4 mile cool down to wrap things up. If you want to see something really impressive, check Rhetts blog.

100 mile week? That's somewhat impressive.

Way to go Dan! Triple digits for the week. I just got back from the scout camp out and still need to get my run in for the day but itís approaching 100 outside and watching college football sounds so nice.
