Man it was hot and humid. Major sweat-fest on the bike tonight. I only rode for an hour, drank about 24 oz of water and still lost 2 lbs. of body weight. Did a bunch of different intervals ranging from 1' to 10'. There wasn't a breath of air moving which was a nice change.

I was asleep by 9 last night and still couldn't get out of bed this morning to swim.  I didn't get a full night's sleep Saturday night and I think I was a little tired from being on my feet all day Saturday and Sunday working with Bobby.  I guess I'll swim at lunch or after work.

Glenn came up and rode with me which was awesome. We got out at 0545. The temps were perfect and the sunrise was unbelievable. Definitely the best time to ride in my book. Had a good ride altogether. Legs just wouldn't go early, then I felt good for the rest of the ride. Just tried to keep a steady pace.

Brick. Said goodbye to the Wyecrabber and went out for a run. This was the run off the bike I've been looking for for a long time. I don't know if it was the weather or recent training, but I just kept feeling better and stronger as the run went on. If I wasn't on a time schedule to get to church, I would have definitely gone a little further. I was really charged up and felt great.

Met Glenn on 213 a little after  0600 on my way to Bobby's.  It was killing me to see him on the bike with the weather breaking.  Gave him a hollar and headed to Cambridge.  Finished the hardwood floors (my hamstrings are happy) and set the bottom kitchen cabinets.

All at race pace.

Today was supposed to be a swim, 3 hr. bike and 45 min. run, but I started feeling really bad on the bike and never recovered.  I had been in bed most of yesterday evening with stomach problems, but felt ok this morning.  After about 20 miles I started feeling really bad.  I took a break in Sudlersville for about 3-4 minutes and my HR wouldn't fall below 130 so my suspicion now is that I had or have some kind of stomach bug.  I stuck with it as best I could and got the ride in but it wasn't pretty.   I'm really bummed to not get the run in (or even a short transition run), but I just had nothing left and it was really starting to heat up outside since the swim and bike took a lot longer than planned.  I just laid on the cool tile floor for 20 minutes when I got home.  I should have just put this workout off until Sunday - live and learn.

Quick run just to get the cobwebs out from the champagne and wine with dinner last night.

Back from the beach a little early.  Had a good time and some awesome food, but it was just too stinkin' hot.  It wouldn't have been so bad, but the wind was very light and out of the west so the beach was just sweltering hot.  The Thrasher's Fries thermometer sign said it was 103 at 4:00 yesterday afternoon.  It felt like 120.

80 deg and 93% humidity. The only way to describe this weather pattern is "cruel". Glad I got up late and only got a short run in. I would have surely died on anything north of 5 miles. I ditched the HRM and the watch this morning so the time is an estimate. Just felt like running without all the gizmos. Kinda felt naked to be honest.

Headed to the beach for a couple days.  Hopefully there will be a decent onshore breeze because it's most definitely going to be hot.  If all goes well, hopefully I'll be about 3 lbs heavier when I get home from all the ice cream I'm going to eat.  :)

Everybody be safe training in this heat!!
