AM Long Run - big looped course with Grand View loop in the middle: all road, but, solid elevation throughout to work through and build strength.  Marathon distance completed in 3:36, and feeling fresh and fairly strong at the end.  Drank mostly of all of the handheld full of Maurten drink mix, and ate one of the Maurten Caf Gel. 

Most of the course was a pretty cool loop that was set up by a local bike club from Bloomington.  OPE challenge is what they call it.  Saw 5-6 cyclists fly by on the 22 mi. loop - funny that its approximately a 1 hour ride. 

Capped off a weekly mileage PR (Mon. - Sun.) at 132.62 miles, and I think a monthly mileage PR at 506.  Feeling pretty good about that!!  :)

Early Lunch run at 10:30 am.  Weather is not too hot - feeling decent after long one yesterday and big week.  Tipton Lakes loops and messing around.  Intentional relaxed pace, with a stop for emergency number 2.  14 miles - 2 hours

Soccer practice at the fields with Jude and Sawyer.  They are catching on quickly, and Tiff and I are learning how to coach them.  We even finished up witha couple of loops around the field.  Ran home from there slowly - got pretty worn down over the last couple of miles.  SR 11 is now closed and the pavement is gone.  We are in the home stretch of this overpass project.  

10.8 miles - 93 minutes.

Slept horribly last night after overdoing it on some refueling with late night eating and caffenaitted protein mixes and what not.  Stomach pissed off, and wide awake/tossing and turning until about 2am.  

Easy run / power hike on Grandview trail for Early lunch run.  5.33 miles - 64 minutes.  Great weather.  A bit tired, but, doing okay considering no sleep.  

Soccer practice with the boys at a crowded Blackwell Park (soccer complex in Columbus).  We did our usual drills and did our run at the end - 3 laps around the field and a set of sprints.

Ran home from there around 7 pm definitely not feeling too enthusiastic, and still 80 degrees, but, with some lower humidity.  10.18 miles through town and down people trail, Goeller, T Lake.  Felt better as the run went on, and got a few words of "encouragement" from some wiseass teenagers in a doorless jeep on Terrace Lake.  The sidewalk project out in front of our neighborhood is almost done, which is awesome, (and about 10 years overdue) but an absolute mess right now.  There are 3 big construction projects in our area, all of which drastically will improve vehicular nad pedestrian mobility when compete.  Excited to see this season get done, and the construction mess be gone, though.

Morning workout: 5 mi. Ctdwn. - already hot and humid at 8:30a.  Dug in and progressed down in to the low 6 minute range.  Struggling with anything faster than 6:40, but, it is pretty warm and humid.  Hard to tell where I stand.  6.27 miles total - 43:54.

Gots some very nice looking plants from Lowes and planted those things afterward - I am definitely struggling in this heat.    

Evening drop off at Harrison Lakes and run home.  Had to walk/jog for first mile to loosen up.  6.7 miles - very slow at firs, but, shook it off / out - 6.7 miles in 61 minutes.  It is still pretty hot out there.

Lunch run at Sycamore Land Trust out by /harrison Lakes.  Its a nice trail loop with a good bit of mud, alot of shady sections, and is usually well maintained.  1.25 mile loop x 4 today, speeding up each loop.  5 miles total - 47:45.

Soccer practice with the boys - we are up to 4 laps around their small field as the "finisher", and seeing some improvements in both of them already!  :)

Ran home from there - the long way.  Went around the backside of Blackwell park and back toward town on most of the last part of the Mill Race route.  Really got low in the last couple miles - dehydrated, and tired.  13.48 miles - 1:56

Lunch time - Grandview road loop + an out and back a little further down Sawmill (also road).  Discovered some wonderful and secluded little farm houses and a lake community I never knew existed.  Another emergency number 2 out inthe woods.  Wore the trail shoes intending to go trail, but, opted for more miles in the alloted time.  It is pretty warm, but, I'm adapting and managing well enough.  11.1 miles - 91 minutes

Evening run - easy 30 minutes around the neighborhood - 3.3 miles - 30 minutes.  Nice sunset this evening.
