Great morning for a long run - about 60 degrees and very peaceful. Comfortable pace, but still challenging. I hope to continue with the longer runs to build for October.

Busy day, with work and company. I could have run at night, but I decided to wait until the morning to do a long run instead. I did mow the lawn, so that's worth some walking time.

This was a pretty good run. I think it's my second fastest 10K, after the one that I got in under 45 a couple weeks ago. The splits were 22:55 and 23:01. This was a quick pace, but fairly relaxed. I was never really pushing hard until about the last quarter mile, when I was trying to get home in under 46. I felt comfortable the whole time. Now I need to work on getting longer runs in, if I'm going to start to build for the DSM Half. I need to start doing some 8-10 mile runs to build my endurance. Plus, those sort of runs will do me well in my tri training. If I can get comfortable running 10 miles, 6 will seem short. I have to work this holiday weekend. But the schedule isn't too bad: I'll work tomorrow morning until about 1, then just rounding on Sunday and Monday morning. I can probably do a short 4 miles tomorrow. Then I'll plan to get a long bike ride on Sunday, and a long run (8 miles?) on Monday. It's supposed to be great weather, so I won't have any excuses!

Day of rest, or, more accurately, day of preparation. TGFFL draft. I might not win this year (again), but I should be a contender. If McNabb can return to form after his injury, and if Bush can live up to the lofty expectations I have for him, this team could be dangerous.

200m warmup 400m of drills 500m hard (9:25) 100m backstroke 100m breaststroke 500m easy (10:40) 200m cooldown Pretty good swim today, considering it's been about 2 weeks since I've been in the pool. I concentrated on early elbow bend and body rotation today. I like getting a longer workout in - the key for me is getting there early enough to avoid feeling rushed. When I go during the week, I'm usually too short on time to do any drill work.

I slept in too late today, so I had to just do a short run this morning. But a short run is better than no run. It was already hot and muggy at 7AM (75 degrees, 85% humidity). I can't wait for the summer weather to be over. I also sprained my ankle on a sidewalk with new sod adjacent to it. Nothing too serious, but still bothersome.

Back in the saddle with another 4 mile run on the treadmill. It's so hot and buggy outside tonight - I'm giving up on fighting it. I'm going to try to go back-to-back with another run tomorrow morning, hopefully outside.
