Easy run day.  Just ran whatever felt easy.  8:29 AP.  Very nice run mentally and physically. Quite enjoyed the route I chose towards AF then up the back way thru Art Dye Park and continued on the trail to Deerfield elementary. Got off there and jogged home via Silo road. Nice weather at 10am!!

fatigue day. could not wake up! went back to bed after kids off to school. at 930am til 1030am. got to gym at 1045am. so worried about planned work out...was supposed to be yesterday but i worked. so today 8-10 yassos. ran two mile warmup in 16:42 at 1%. Stretched briefly then ran 1/4 mile at 8:57 (6.7mph ) then right into six yassos before stopping to pee (had to badly for the last four) First three at 6:03 (9.9mph) and next three at 6:00. with 26-28 second rest, no running then i would start tm to 8:57 pace for 1/4 mile. This ends up being nearly the same time recovery as speed (2:45 ).  Then,  I came back on tm after four min break and ran another 1/4 mile at 8:57. Then two more yassos....one at 6:00 and one at 5:56 (10.1mph). So here I was at 8 x 800s and wanting to be done. And I thought I was... so I began my cooldown at 8:57 pace. Well when I got to 1/4 mile I just upped the pace again to 10.1mph and when I got 0.2 miles into it I stopped... I was hungry and tired cause I hadnt eaten breakfast and only had about three ounces chocolate almond milk  and five ounces of cherry gatorade and the mix of the two was nauseating! this was taken in just before leaving for the gym. This run however was really more mental then physical . I felt so good Tuesday emotionally. Feeling strong about myself and handling anything. Then today was like some dark dark cloud was consuming my thoughts and feelings causing hopeless feelings and depression. It was perplexing and agonizing and made me want to give up the day all together . I decided these feelings came from eating foods I was allergic to and too processed chemically...a very rich forty ingredient chocolate cake from costco yesterday at work and lots of peanuts. my feet and hands were itching badly after work. i believe the sugar and peanuts just harbored a bad reaction for me. so eating clean today!! and all week to try and off set this. Anyway i got up the strength to do the ninth yasso...fully.....at 10.1 (5:56 pace) took a quater mile break and finish with  10.2mph(5:52 pace) for 0.3 miles to make up for my earlier failure of mind! cooldown a half mile. Basically I ran 9 yassos with 1 broken up (0.2 + 0.3 miles =0.5 he he)at 2:59:59average pace but this by no means tells me i am on for a subthree. It was not fun!!! went and cooled off in the stream. Then finally ate at 1pm!! i was starving!!!

8 easy miles in the heat of the day.  11am to 1208pm.  8:33pace.  Not going to try too hard for subthree.  I really am dealing with a lot of head games and every single star in the world would have to align for that to happen.  I am not sure I am cut out for running much longer in the racing seen....two more weeks and I am thru racing.  It will be a good thing.  : D I am so burnt out.

Coworker helped me out so I could run this am with Jane and Kim and Angie, Jenny and Chandi (met at Jane's in Highland).   So tired driving over I thought the run would be horrible but oddly I felt really good and strong from mile one.  Last mile tough uphill and we stopped a few times which always makes it harder for my old body to get going.  First mile 7:41?????  weird.  And I wasn't with Jane and Kim, I was with Angie and Jenny.   After first mile I felt so good I stayed in between the two groups.  Ran to Angie's house (2.75 miles) to pick up Jenny who was only running 12.  We then proceeded up Alpine Highway to Eternal water fountain and further up to Alpine slide (sliding rock).   So fun!!  So fall out there up there.  Rest of splits:  7:37, 7:30, 7:50 (uphill and we had stopped just before this mile..slows my momentum but so fun to take it easy), 7:25, 7:24, 7:29 (a stop at 6.4 miles), 8:07 (very uphill/hilly to sliding rock), breather up top (8.67miles there), then ran 7:49, and rest at close to marathon pace (fantasy) except cooldown last mile was UPHILL...6:47, 6:54, 7:07 (uphill in there then flat), 7:01 (flat and chatting away plus we stopped for a potty break...so hard to get back on pace with a five minute stop), 6:46 (still chatting),6:45, 6:51, and 7:20 and last 0.12 at 7:03.  Iced in AF river with Kim and Angie.  So refreshing.  Off to work soon.  AP for 17.12 miles= 7:19.
