I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

AM- BW.  Wanted 8-10 tempo.  Felt like crap during my 4 mile warmup (body is very tired and not sleeping enough), but the workout actually felt decent for a while.  By mile 5, though, I knew I would struggle to finish.  Took a break at 6.5 to get a drink since I seemed to be overexerting myself, but still finished ok.  Most I have ever sweat during a morning run- just dripping the whole time (that's what 90% humidity will do).  Finished with 14.5 miles in 1:40:34 including 8 tempo miles in 48:30 (all between 6:01-6:05).

Lunch- another warm, humid day.  And was reminded that 3 hrs is not long enough to recover from a BW.  Sluggish and tired the first 2-3 miles, then felt better.  Ran 8, then xt 4.  12 total.

I don't often do 26.5 miles in training.  Today reminded me why- cause it's dang tiring!
