Personal:

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- Treadmill BW- 3 mile warm up, then tinman tempo- started at 6:07 pace, then slowly increased pace to 6:00 by mile 5, 5:53 by mile 9.  Felt great today.  During BW, I normally feel ok yet am working hard, but today it felt easy.  When I finished the run, there wasn’t even any sweat that had dripped on the treadmill. In fact, the faster I went, the better I felt.  5:50 pace felt easier than 6:05 pace.  Decided to add an extra mile to end of tempo with rapidly increasing pace, finishing at 5:00 pace for the last 200 yards, still feeling great.  I wanted to keep going but knew I should be cautious.  2 mile cooldown.  16 miles total in about 1:42, with 11 tempo in about 66 min.  Good start to the week.

Lunch- 7 more.  Tired and sore now- feels like I almost ran a marathon.  3 hrs between runs is never enough.

Here is some interesting info.  If you want to know who a candidate will favor if elected, just look at what companies contribute to them (well, the employees).  For Romney: his top contributors are Wall Street, banks, investment firms, etc.  And their contributions are huge $$$$  For Ron Paul: his top contributors are military members.  It looks like our military members like Paul's ideas of bringing the troops home and not fighting in costly, dangerous wars overseas.  So, Romney = more bailouts and favoritism towards banks/Wall Street.  Ron Paul = bring troops home out of harms way, which they support.

AM- 10

PM- 10.5 with Justin on a chilly night at PM.  Tired and slow- 97 miles in my last 5 days of running, which is obviously a lot.  Trails are always nice.  But definitely slower when it is dark.  Hardly anyone out- maybe saw 6 people the whole time. 1200 ft climb, 1:56.

Lunch- 7+2.  Knee is hurting again, ever since my BW on Monday.  Probably cause I've run 113 miles over the last 7 days.

AM- Little workout.  First time I have had 2 workouts in the same week in years, probably.  And first time I have done any workouts other than long tempos in forever.  Did 3 warmup, then 3x2 mile with 2 min rest (splits were 5:46, 5:46, 5:42, 5:42, 5:39, 5:34).  12 total in about 80 min.  

PM- 6 ez.  Tired.

AM- Met Dan and Jim downtown for a run on the Swamp Rabbit and around Furman area.  21.5 miles on a beautiful morning.  Legs felt appropriately fatigued by the end given my mileage this week, but still moving well.  Miles 14-20 were all sub-7 pace, with most 6:25-6:45.  21.5 miles in 2:35 (7:14 avg).  Good week- 3 more like this as the last of my training, then taper for Umstead.
