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- running right before frisbee seems to be impacting my game a touch so I ran before work. 4 slow miles.

Lunch- lots of running at frisbee today. Loads of running. We won 5-3.

Lunch run with barry and seth. Mainly talked about layoffs that were happening today. Layoffs suck. We had thought my department wouldn't be hit but we were, hard. My group and basically all groups. I made it through ok, but still tough. They said they will be filling many of the positions except overseas with cheaper labor. We heard more to come, though not sure when. Anyway, I have a job for now.

40 minutes, we'll call it 5 miles.

AM- 5

Lunch- frisbee. Had 2 fields, so did a mini tournament. My team won the first game 5-3, then switched and beat the other winning team 5-2, then won another game 3-0. Fun day, great weather again- high 50's, low breeze.

AM- 6 on a cool morning. Nice and easy, 7:50-8:30 pace. part of recovery week.

I've found it interesting how no carbs for 2 weeks has not seemed to impact my exercising at all. I haven't done any runs longer than 80 minutes, so maybe I would feel different at longer distances, but I haven't really felt any energy differences for not eating carbs.
