After church- Sugarcreek trails. Lots of challenging hills and nice wide trails that go down by the river. I was suprised my legs showed so much life after my yesterday, but it was a most welcome surprise.

AM- Wonderful 48º 8.25 recovery. Big block through shull gate. Pretty quiet morning. 

PM- 76º 6 easy on the bike path. A handful of deer as the sun was setting helped keep the pace. A few bikers with annoying flashing lights.

AM- 67º Humid, which is OK to run in, but I really got spoiled with those low 50 degree runs. Ran the classic - 10 Miles (w/ 2.5 miles @ HMP in the middle) and then intervals. 6x3 Mins w/ 2 min active recoveries. They turns out to be just shy of 1/2 mile intervals, about 725+ meters. These are always tough to pull after after 10 miles, but I hit my goal times all 6 of the intervals.. If I had to describe how I feel after in one word... J-E-L-L-O

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.
