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!

Day off.  Soreness was maybe a 2 out of 10 yesterday (which was a good thing since I walked around Atlanta ALL day, most of it carrying a kid).   I was surprised to see that my last day not running was Jan 1- I never would have guessed I had a 15 week streak going.  Running has been more consistent, I guess.

Lunch- 5 ez with Jim and Jason, then 3 bike.  Felt pretty good, except I was more winded than usual and my quads were twinging on a few steep downhills.  But definitely better condition than expected.

Lunch- 10 with some of the guys, including the last 2 fast with Jim (6:30 pace).  Legs feel 95% recovered.  Ankle is still pretty bad, and I imagine my endurance is shot for at least another week.

PM- Got a late start due to sleeping in, plus a neighborhood bike parade and easter egg hunt.  Drove to Croft State Park, my second time there.  As expected, felt like absolute crap the first 4 miles and almost quit.  Felt better by 1 hr mark.  Uneventful but enjoyable run- didn't see a single person on the mountain bike trails, though I did venture into a campground and rodeo area where there were a ton of people.  Found the Southside bike trails once again to be splendid, and the state park trails to be crappity-crappy-crap as they are completely overrun with horses that result in chopped up, sloppy, muddy, poopy trails.  Also saw one large (6+ ft) snake that I'm pretty sure is a black Eastern Rat snake- I played with it for a few minutes.  75 deg and very humid.  Wish I had my camera to capture some of the gorgeous, green-carpeted, shaded areas of the run- beautiful.  Didn't feel great, overall, but a nice run.  14 miles total in 2:09 with ~1000 ft elevation (garmin connect says 750 corrected, 2300 uncorrected, SportTracks says 2100, garmin training center says 4000- I really wish they would agree somewhat- these rolling, east coast trails seem to drive the watch nuts).  Now my easy week is over, back to high mileage next week.  4 more weeks of hard training before my taper for OD.
