Get under 3 hours one more time...
Grew up outside Chicago and joined the blog while I lived in Salt Lake City. Now living outside Birmingham. I am married with two daughters. Wife thinks I'm crazy for doing marathons. And yes I am crazy I'm a scientist for a living...
Actually woke up "normal" time. Still super humid.
3 mi WU; 5X1K w/ 400 rest; 3 mi CD
Warmup and spilts. Cooldown splits messed up.
AM: 8 mi very slow solo, Avg. 10:48
AM: 3 mi "bonus" with family after I got home... Avg. 9:18 (yes I'm much slower on my own...)
AM 1: 6.26 mi w/ 8X strides w/ Josh Avg. 9:19
AM 2: 3 mi w/ family immediately after Avg. 9:38
First 3mi w/ family then continued into my long run. Was hoping for four more miles but just not feeling it.
