    Did a 3.5 hour trail run – prepping for a 50K trail run coming up.
    Run was good – had some hydration issues – but working on a new plan for that – still have a few long run remaining to get it nailed down.

    Ran a local 5mi race, 32:37. 1st in AG.
    Important lessons-
    Hammer HEED + my GI system= horrible, horrible toilet time.
    And the week following my next half iron will definitely include more meaningful workouts, especially if I have a race the following weekend. My legs felt like lead from start to finish yesterday.

    16 mile training run last night/9:48 avg pace. A PR distance for me in prep for a December marathon. Aerobically great run; balls of feet and legs were in serious pain, managed 14 before having to back off and walk some….need more cushion I guess. Plus side was a couple of times I hit a really nice stride/groove.

    Today’s schedule is a 20-25 mile bike ride.

    2.5 hour ride today. 30 minute run. Nothing left now but to kick back and carb up for Saturday.

    Short run yesterday and bought a new bike, Cervelo S1 from R&A Cycles in Brooklyn. My first new bike since grammer school so I’m very excited. Took my old bike out this morning for a farewell 38 mile perimeter ride around the island before I pick up the new wheels this week. Looking foward to breaking it in next weekend!

    Friday I did strength and a 1500 technique swim, that nite I did hill repeats on a 1.5k hill (intense both up and down to be ready for the downhills in my upcoming half marathon). Saturday I ran 5k recovery real easy and ate way too much at a party. Today was 17.5k at 5:45m/km. I felt really good and comfortable and could have kept going. More importantly, my training buddy, Chewie the dog, was comfortable the whole way and had a great run today! I am hoping that he can actually do my half marathon with me. My partner, a vet, is watching him closely but he seems great and is having no trouble.

    Saturday: 8 miles, comfortable pace, including a few laps around the Compton Hill Reservoir Park, which I’d never run before, though its only a mile from my place. Watched USC lose (horray!), napped, and played Euchre with friends.

    Sunday: Rained all morning, so I waited until 11 AM for my run. It was nice and cool, and dodging puddles through my 12 mile run (in 93 min, 7:35 pace) was fun. 4 weeks until the Des Moines marathon.

    Um…absolutely nothing. My planned 8 mile run and 30 mile ride were derailed by four, count ‘em four, sick kids! Spent the weekend wiping noses and administering children’s tylenol. Tomorrow, 6:00am speedwork.

    Gfd, my sister did the Distance this morning. Spectacular day down our way. Sorry you missed it!

    I hear ya on that, HEED and me don’t get along either.

    Ran 13.5 miles today in Houston…not used to the heat at all, I was worried about the hydration/heat issues, but had no problems. Now my toes hurt so I’m off to Walgreens to score some frozen peas, then ice time in the hotel!

    Just got back from my last sprint tri of the season. Had a PR for an overall but my splits weren’t recorded! (bad chip?). Anyways – 6/20 AG and 77/600(ish) OA. I did get passed by three guys in my AG on the run (between miles 1-3) – 6-3=?. Yahhh…

    My objectives have gotten become a little more aggressive, with this one to finish in the top 30%. Which I did!
