AM- Started cool, ended a little warm. Lots of people out walking dogs, biking, running. Ran from Fishburg over the dam in Taylorsville, to tadmor, to underpass to Kyle park. 3 Mile warmup then 16 MP Miles. As a reference for me BQ pace is 7:49. To actually get in pace is around 7:40. So my 16 miles were at 7:35 AP. Then 1 mile cool down. The encouraging part is I still had gas in the tank at the end of 20. I am tired sure, but knowing I had more in me was a mental boost. Race is 4 weeks from today. I have lots of travel starting Monday for about 12 days. I will have to be very creative the keep my miles up.

Great workout. This is a great place to be 4 weeks out.

Great job Dan! What race did you decide on doing? I missed that somewhere. All signs are pointing to you having a great race.

From Dan on Sun, Oct 15, 2017 at 18:19:38 from

Tom - Thanks, I am trying to make up for my lack of talent.

Jason- Thanks - Looking at your history I am going to trust you on that. I have had a race slump so really want to stay sharp.

Rhett- Hey you too! And I am doing Richmond, VA, Nov 11th.
