<p>So, 11 slow, groggy, sloggy miles this morning.  I am just not feeling well.  At least the sun was shining.  70F & >80% humidity.</p>
<p> </p>

<p>Asics--groggy sloggy?  Hey--it's all miles in the bank.</p>
<p>fuller--rest up!</p>
<p>zrun--you snuck in on me!  What group do you run with?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Planned for 8.5 this morning.  However, the legs just weren't feeling fresh and since I'm racing this weekend, opted to not do the extra loop.  Once I got to my TA for 6, realized I wasn't ready to head back just yet, so added an extra half.  7 total for the day.  Bit slower than hoped, but good, strong run none the less.</p>

<p><strong>RA</strong> -- I hear you, man.  The doldrums of the training cycle -- body's hurting from being in the thick of training, race still too far away to get too excited or motivated.  Push on through.  We'll get there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>kfuller</strong> -- Rest up today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>zrun</strong> -- Way to take advantage of the better (if not "good") weather.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>4boys</strong> -- Good job.  Yes, what race?</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>FlBoiler</strong> -- Ever think of moving to a more civilized area?  ;-)</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Dan</strong> -- Enjoy whatever you decide to do, even if it's rest.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Me</strong> -- 15 on the Y treadmill yesterday.  Man, that's a slog.  7 recovery today in the upper-60s sunshine.  Achilles are acting up, so I'm babying them with lots of ice and heat.  Helps a great deal. </p>

<p>I'm doing an Oly tri on Sunday.  This is the only race in the series that son1 and I haven't done.  I'm looking forward to it.  It's just a B race, leading up to my A race which is a half iron later in August.</p>

<p>Morning all,</p>
<p> </p>
<p>OK performance last night at the track. I had hoped to make the Masters mile race but the DC's area's notorious traffic did not cooperate and I got there as it was on lap 2. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" title=""> So the open mile it was for me. With not much time to warm up, I turned in a 5:44, not a terrible result, but not exactly what I was hoping for either. My legs were tight and I just couldn't seem to get the turnover out of them that I was looking for. After a short rest I then did the 3000m, deciding to just see if I could run an even hard-tempo pace throughout. Mission accomplished on that, as I went 11:29 for a 6:10 average mile pace, which means 92.5 per quarter. I wasn't taking splits on my watch but I was looking at it to check them as I came around and I was pretty consistently on 91-93 seconds; I think maybe on the next to last lap I slipped to 94-95 but then I pulled it back to 92 on the final lap. For a hot night and it being my second workout of the day (and second two-a-day in a row), I'll take it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Today - hittin' the trails. I'll stop at the lake on my way home and hopefully put in two loops for 9+ total. It will be steamy but I'm counting on the forest cover to help me out a little.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>RA - yeah, doldrums, hard training, what Chances said. At least you both only have to wait until October. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>kevin - enjoy the rest day</p>
<p> </p>
<p>zrun - impressive morning mileage. Well done.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4bm - good job finding a little extra mojo out there</p>
<p> </p>
<p>FB - I hear you on the humidity. You're in the one place where it's probably worse than what we get.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Dan - have fun doing whatever you end up doing</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances - 15 on the TM for, that would be, let's see, one shirt change at least. <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/rolleyes.gif" title=""></p>

<p>Rob - Be careful with dem heels! </p>
<p>4boys - Good luck with that race. </p>
<p>Hawk - What's your PR for a mile?  Have a good sweaty run this afternoon.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I probably shouldn't have but went out for another W8R2.  It was hard and I'll probably pay tomorrow.  Probably stay at this workout a few more times.<br>

<p>Post-40 PR for a mile is 5:29.4, done at the same race I did last night, but two years ago. Nice job on 8+2.</p>

<p>Hawk - nice job, especially considering weather & lack of warmup.  Too bad about the masters mile.  I wish I could run those times, my best mile was a 5:47 in a race with my brother on a track long, long ago (with him 10 sec ahead <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/mad.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">).  It would be fun to try to shoot to break 6 this fall, but I am trying to be careful with my hamstrings.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Chances -  nice job on the 'mill & this am, good luck w/ the achilles</p>
<p> </p>
<p>4boysmom - nice job sticking it out.   <span style="font-family:Arial;font-size:small;"><span lang="en" style="font-size:10pt;font-family:arial;">Last couple of months I’ve been running with an informal group that meets early morning out in the western suburbs.<span> </span> Really nice bunch of people.</span></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span style="font-family:Arial;font-size:small;"><span lang="en" style="font-size:10pt;font-family:arial;">Almost made it through July.  Have a good one, all.</span></span></p>

<p>Did my first 3 mile run since Sunday's marathon.  Legs feel very good.  So, now I'm going to start working on my 5k times.</p>

<p>Lake trail run done a little earlier this evening. I got there later than I wanted so I had to cut the run a little short in order to avoid getting locked in (closes at dark). That was fine with me given the 88% humidity. 6.3 mile progression run instead. I'll take it.</p>
