AM- 66º 100% humidity. 8 Hours of 100% humid and no rain is heavy air. Don't get me wrong - you guys in FL, GA & TX have it worse I am sure - but it's heavy.

 6x1 5x1 Mile repeats. Very tired/sore legs this morning, maybe I went to fast on the trails last night or its just the trials of miles.... miles of trials... I dunno. First 3 miles on rolling hills were hitting pace (6:55, 6:54, 6:56) despite not being flat so that was a mental boost. Mile 4 was 85% uphill and gut check, it was all I could do to hold a MP mile. Mile 5 was trashed legs after that hill. I got under MP and just over 1/2 MP but thats it so I scrapped repeat 6. Overall satisfied with the run and back to work.

AM- Cooler 8.25 Miles through shullgate around big block. Suprisingly my legs felt 'OK' which I of course was happy about. 

PM- Sunny and nice, but warm. 6 easy. Some punk kids wanted to race me. I kept my pace slow and they gave up quick enough. Amazing how fast they are for 50 meters and then give up. :p

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.
