<p>Good morning, TEAM LIT!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck to all those gearing for IMLP. Hang strong. One more day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me...</p>
<p> </p>
<p>18.6 mile long run with a bunch of others in a stoopid high level of hoomidity. We started as early as possible to avoid the brunt of what should be a 95 degree day here with HHH. Seemed to work. Pace was pretty good, as this crowd is on the faster side. My first long run in a long, long time. Felt good until mile 15 or so. But pace was easy for me. Then the brunt of sweating so much (HHH) kicked in. One of the guys brews his own beer, and he's very good at it, so we capped the run off with a sampling of each of his four currently on tap in his cave in the basement. A fun, fun summer run. Love those kinds.</p>

<p>Great day, Tri-peeps!</p>

<p>My workout for today is in the IMLP virtual miles.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Next, errands and lunch.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I have to say, though.....</p>
<p>that the hoomidity (ala Thor) really got to me today in the form of 8 different dime-quarter size chafe spots on my torso. </p>
<p>The post-workout shower was a study in avoiding the burn!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ow!</p>

<p>9 mile run in 1:43:56 - a 6+min PR from last week same course! (which was a PR in and of itself!) WOOT!!! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif" style="width:33px;height:35px;" title=""></p>
<p>Best part is it was 30min z1, 20min z2, 54min z3. Never above z3. At that pacing, I would have crushed my 13.1 all time PR by several minutes. and I could certainly have gone on.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Kom Do (sword)  class in 20min, gotta get ready.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Nap on deck for today. 1 more day in this training cycle and I can cut back for a week. Thank gawd I'm getting tired.</p>

<p>Super shticky out there today for sure.  1:15 ride on the bike this morning out onto the spit for a couple of loops.  Decided to turn it into a brick but quickly realized I was wearing a cycling only bra.  Did a bouncy run around the block and called it a day.</p>

<p>Well I guess I just posted my workout report in the IMLP thread, but I'll do it here to - 2 mile OW race, came in 3rd AG at 52:28.   Very hot here too - the water was 86 degrees, yuck!  Crab cooker, it was.   Supposed to be 101 today, 103 tomorrow :(</p>

<p>1:25 on the bike doine some anaerobic interval work - after a longish warmup I did 5x5 with 5' recovery and finished up with a cooldown. Battled crosswinds most of the way which slowed me down a bit into the 24.5 range.</p>

<p>19.1mi bike down down down and then up up up.  This ride (route 11-A from Gunstock to Alton Bay, NH and back) is the most challenging route I tackle each year and it didn't disappoint.  The HHH conditions added to it.  This ride take me to the maximum extent of my abilities and then holds it there.  When I was out of the saddle, lungs about to burst, feeling like I should stop and toss my breakfast, I thought a lot about Thor's mountain races and how few workouts like this I have on my agenda where I am just breathing as hard as I possibly can and need more but keep going not giving in to stopping.  I wish I had the mentality and drive to do more of these kinds of workouts and do them not just on the bike but on the run too.</p>
