I was running down Seasons Drive when suddenly I felt something flick up and bounce off my ankle. I got the crap scared out of me when it started shreiking at me. Freakin' cicada bug. :p

This run sucked. The life out of me, that is. 1 mile w/u and then 3 @ tempo effort of 7:06/mi avg. It amuses me to think that when the temps drop into the 50s and 60s I'll be able to run faster than this for a half. Right now it's a mental struggle not to just stop and walk halfway through.

    Nice job pushing through Drew, tempos are the toughest workout of all in such conditions. These will be a piece of cake come fall (or maybe winter down your way).

    Great job, Drew! I've got a tempo on my schedule for tomorrow morning, and even at 5am, the humidity's not going to do me any favors. Good luck to the both of us for the rest of our training for Chickamauga!

    It was awfully hot at 5 AM. You're going to tear up the roads up when the air becomes tolerable again.

    Hilarious! But honestly, when I read the first few words I was afraid you had a snake bite. Initially, a cicada screeching at you seems just as bad. Great tempo!

    What is a cicada? Maybe that is what got on Amanda once.

    We should've run together today. Same distance and same struggles. Minus the cicada!
