Late am Long Run - about 80 degress and sunny when I left house at 11a.  Run Terr. LAke, Goeller, P.Trail, through town, picked up off road trail by Haw Creek.  Nice little very covered and mud/dirt trail running along creek for about 1mile.  Connected back to P.Trail system out toward airport.  Hit 1:45 turn around point just prior to Ivy Tech.  On way back, picked up people trail and then HCreek Tr. again - this time catching an overhanging branch with the top of my head.  Took a little off the top and started bleeding profusely (as head injuries do).  Had wash off and hold hat on wound until it stopeed, but, not before being covered in blood.  I must've looked like a crazy person running back.  Hit the water fountains and several bathroom stops, with 3 Huma Gels eaten and tolerated.  hard to tell because I was going so slow, but, the Vegan Huma gels seem to sit pretty well in the stomach.  Made it home blood stained and a bit cooked -3:30:53 - 24miles

Walk at work, and 5mi. moderate trail effort during lunch break, after meeting in Clarksville.  Silver Creek Trail was not too muddy today - a whole lot more down branches and a bunch of people out golfing on this fine summer morn.  about 3 mi. of AT effort.

PM run - heading out of house intending to do a workout... Some strange shooting pains in my right hammie/lower back.  stoppped running immediately and walked about a half a mile.  Did a couple of drills to loosen up, which seemed to work.  Slowly jogged a couple more miles around the neighborhood to make sure.  Everything seemed to be fine now.  Not sure waht that was?

Into the workout after about 40 minutes of that nonsense - 5x0.65mi. w/ 2min. rec. jog.  These were horrible and slow and felt like a 10k effort at times - about 4:00 for every one.  9.1miles - 1:17 total

AM Long run in the sun.  IT was really more like 2 mid LR:  2 x ~2hrs with a family pool break in the middle.  Kids first time at public pool was fun.  There's a toddler hour from 10a-11a where everybody gets in for 1 dollar to Donner Aq. Cntr.  Lots of ountains and play things in the shallow waters for the little ones.  It was special.

The run was pretty tough - it was hot today - about 85 degrees near the end, and I drained a lot of water to try and keep up.  26.21 mi. - 3:50:33.
