AM- 5.5 miles on the back 9, 2 shooting stars.
PM- Big Workout. I was very, very happy to see some clouds blow in around noon- the temp was around 80 deg when I ran, cloudy, a bit breezy. The best running conditions I have had in the afternoon since May. Did 3 miles warmup, then 2 tempo miles (2nd was 6:10 with Paul on the track). Saw Cody pushing his kids. Then Paul and I started the workout- 6x1mi at LT pace (~5:45) with 300m rest (1:30-1:40). Repeats went 5:44, 5:46, 5:45, 5:44. At this point, I had to go to the bathroom so had an extended break, and Paul headed home. After the stop, I warmed up a bit then did my last two- 5:45, 5:44. I'm not sure if it was because my legs cooled down a bit, because I was running without Paul, because of some lingering fatigue from Saturday, or why, but number 5 was tough and number 6 was darn hard. My legs were pooped by the end- absolutely tired. Nevertheless, I was happy with the workout- very consistent for all 6 repeats, right at the correct pace. I did 1.5 miles cooldown on the track than jogged 2 miles home. Saw James Barnes for a minute on the way- he is here with some of his cross country kids at a camp. Very glad to be done, very tired. Now 3 easy days to recover before what promises to be a good race on Saturday. Total 15.5 miles, 1:49:11 (7:02 avg). Dinner then sleep.
