Did my last long run before my taper in the evening.  19.6 miles @ 8:24 with 1400 feet gain.  It was a horrible run.  I've been battling a cold and felt like junk, had no energy, and wanted to stop every 15 minutes (I compromised with a couple 5 min breaks sitting in teh grass picking wild flowers).  Plus it's was unseasonably hot and despite drinking 3 water bottles I was not drinking enough.  My legs hurt and felt dead.  BLECH!.  The only good think is that I feel good about slugging out the run and pushing through despite how it felt.

Ran 6 miles after work.  I initially started with Ralphie but it was too hot/humid so I dropped him off after the first 3 miles (ran at 7:48) and ran the last 3 by myself a little faster ( 7:14).  Felt pretty good but my shin and left butt were a little tight

Super Speed Workout!

Goal was to do 4x800m at about 15sec faster than my guestimated 5k pace, so I was shooting to do between 2:55-3:05 reps.

Did 1.7 mile warm up jog to the track then 4x800m with 400m jog recovery and a 1.7 mile cool down jog home.

 Repeats were 2:57, 3:01, 3:03, and 3:05
