I’ve really been neglecting my log and failed to keep it updated mostly because my life has been a hectic mess lately.   The main thing in my life is that we closed on our house and did the move mid-June, I’d like to say it was smooth but it was fairly dramatic compared to my last closing but it’s all straight now and the house is kicking.  Also I had in-laws visiting for the better part of a week during the move and we've been busy doing all the stuff associated with a new house like painting and replacing fixutures.  The only bad part is that I need to find all new running routes now and my new neighborhood isn’t as nice to run in. The weather has also been crap, raining ¾ of the time.  Works also been busy with left me in a little bit of a funk/ and some missed runs towards the end of June. 

At the end of May, I started informally working with a running coach.  He’s a local ultramarathoner that trains a couple of fast local guys.  So far it has been pretty good and he’s definitely some intensity and accountability that I needed.   We are trying a 10-day cycle which is interesting, my cycle typically a long run, a track workout, short tempo and long faster run.  I did two races since I started working with him and both have been pretty good.  I set a PR in a 3.5 mile race and I was 3 seconds off a lifetime PR in the 8k on a course that was hilly and a touch long.  Plus I feel good during some pretty intense workouts so hopefully the rest of the summer goes good

And we got a new kitten, she’s a holy terror!
