PM - following a nice Father's Day with my family - had to travel to Chicago for business later in the day - got out for an easy 7.5 mile run along the Lakefront on a pleasant but buggy evening.

PM - tried to do this workout at the Alpharetta high school track - but could not find a way in and a storm was about to hit - so I moved to the YMCA treadmill instead. Good workout. 2 mile warm up; 12 x 400 @ 5k pace with a 200 rest then 800 jog then 4x 200 @ mile pace with a 200 rest; 2 mile cool down.

PM - nice relaxed but a bit hilly 9.0 miles after work.  Cool front kept things comfortable in the shaded parts of the route.

PM - on the treadmill - decent workout.   2 mile warm up; 2 miles @ HM pace; 800 jog; 1 mile @ 10k pace; 800 jog; 800 at 5k pace; 1 mile cool down.   Felt ok.  First rep was a bit stressful toward the end avg'd 6:24 pace; second rep was the worst of the 3 but hit 6:06 pace; last rep was fine 2:52 - I figure I can handle anything for a half mile.

PM - 6.5 easy miles with Richie in St. Pete around Feathersound at lunchtime.  Heavy local thunderstorm popped up just as we started and hammered us with heavy rain and wind - but the cool rain was welcome on what I expected to be a really hot and steamy run.  Supposed to run with one of my daughters on the beach this evening for a 5k.  

PM - after work joined my daughter Riley who is at the beginning of training for a half marathon in the fall.  Ran with her on a beach 5k in Clearwater - as a former competitive swimmer, she ran really well - averaging just under 8:50 pace and finishing strong.  Really enjoyed running with her. Wife and other daughter met us for dinner at the Palm Pavilion afterwards.

PM - 12 miles easy on the treadmill in the middle of the day. Too hot outside for a run of that length.
