  1. RUN
    Meander 5.01 mi 00:42 08:25 pace

    Just a meander after dropping L off at school.
    Still crazy hot.
    Yesterday we swam in the lake, that's how hot it has been.
    Leaves were falling from the trees, but we were swimming in the lake,... read more

      I think it is weird that the leaves are still changing and falling in this heat?

      I worry about the trees, actually. They drop their leaves based on length of day, because it's supposed to be cold and so the pests are being frozen out. But the pests are still out in force! Anyway, nice meander and (yesterday) swim.

    Around... 6.5 mi 00:53 08:09 pace

    Needed to run today. Yesterday was a parental shit-show, so I needed to get out and enjoy some solo time.
    Nothing fancy.

      I know it won't help but I always went totally cold and still when there was unacceptable behaviour. Just stared until there was a lull then said, "are you finished? Now I don't want to have to tell you again...."

      Parental shit show....that's funny (for me to read not for you I'm sure). Good stress relief run.

    Licking my wounds 4 mi 00:37 09:09 pace

    Dropped L off at school and went for a damage assessment.
    Legs still feel awfully tired. Glutes too. Not shocking really. But all will be well with some time.

    Army Run 2017 13.2 mi 01:52 08:27 pace

    Waaaaay too hot.
    I ran a solid 10k at my target pace of 7:30/mi and then the heat and lack of shade got to me. I eased off after another few miles and just ran it on home.
    Live to run another day.

      Heat is hard, even if you're training in it. You worked hard for this, and the WORK means something too. It's not always about race day. Chin up. You're one of the most committed and talented runners I follow here. I admire your determination, and I know that this feels like a miss in your brain. But to your followers, you're still a total badass, I assure you. So FEEL LIKE A BADASS. :)

    Shitty! Right on schedule! 4.8 mi 00:40 08:21 pace

    Started slow, 8:29/mi, then got in 2 miles at 7:57/mi, and then the last 2 miles someone let the air out of my tires.......merp.

    Sounds about right for 2 days out from race day.

      @pierre- I most definitely went for the meds. I had two days of intense migraines that left me throwing up, I definitely needed some antibiotics. Things seem to be clearing up slowly. I'm just hoping my body can handle the duration of the race, the speed isn't the problem, it's maintaining it for the entire race that is more the issue at this point....hopefully my stamina won't be too affected. We'll see! :)

      Hope it solves the issue and you will have the stamina. I suggest your best bet is to aim to somehow get enough sleep even if it takes some strategies wrt the insomni-son.
