AM-4 miles on the road with pickups. I had some second thoughts today about racing one of the big 5k events on the 4th. They were short lived however.  Lacking motivation I guess..

AM-6 miles easy on the mill. (46:11) My mileage has been a struggle to keep up for the last two weeks. Mainly because of some nasty left calf strain that came on right after I decided to race again. Aagh!!  Is it coincidental that I get injured at the same time of year? Right after Draper Days 5k in 2013 I had an ugly upper hamstring pull that took me almost two years to completely resolve. That one caused by trying to escape out of a start chute that was way too narrow for the number of entrants involved. This one because of a leg discrepancy issue which I have tried to solve with weights but without much success. This situation is getting really old along with my body.. What to do?

A fun low key 5k type of run with really good people and a good breakfast afterwards:) 

Spent the rest of the day on the BBQ and watching the HBO miniseries "John Adams."

AM-13 miles. 7 on the road and 6 on the mill for better recovery from yesterday's run. First half very easy on the road at 7:30-8/min pace. Last on the mill around 6:40-7:30/min/mi. Jog home. Stretch and usual push-up/crunch routine. Form drills tomorrow maybe or short hill sprints.

PM-5 miles in heat and wind. I guess it was sort of easy..

AM-10 miles easy jog early this morning. Slept like a rock last night and only a bit sore. Always good news for this aging body.

PM-No run. Started a new radio restoration project. This one is going to be really fun:) Circa roaring 1920's..

AM-10 mile MP/LT progression run with long hills.  94th/o/b. Went by feel and intensity.

PM-5 miles before work. Hot as H double toothpicks.. I was going to do it afterwards when it's a little cooler out there. I'm not sure which is worse these days however. Running at midnight in the hood? Or at hundred degree heat in the hood?

AM-10 mile depletion run with 5 at sub marathon pace on the return. Really pleased with this training week even in spite of the heat. Sub 2:45 at TOU seems a realistic goal now.

AM-16 mile long run with the last 4 miles at MP.  Out and back twice in order to stop for powerade at home. Tough run today but at least it was a bit cooler.

PM-No run. Just got through listening to Donald Trump's speech at the RNC. I'm thinking this is going to be a write in this time..
