Anoter 10 miler today. No blazing speed but just trying to get in some mileage. I've been so busy it's been hard to train right for this marathon. Only getting in 30-35 miles per week and with the head and humidity I don't feel they have been quality miles.

Today I was planning for a long (16-18 mile) run but with the weather I bailed and just ran a slow 10. It wasn't as easy as the time suggest.

I think this is the first time I've run a 6 minute mile in over a year. Hopefully things are coming together but it's been hard to keep a consistant running schedule with all of the traveling we've been doing. Just the little drop in temperature made a huge difference today! 63 degrees, 72% humidity, 54 degree dewpoint, 157 lbs

Runs are beginning to have a few more MP pace miles. Still struggling with warm weather and high humidity  om most runs. The couple of days I've have 50's and lower humidity the runs have been much better.

51 Degrees, 74% Humidity, 45 Degree Dew Point (great conditions for me!)

Still had some juce in tank at the end of the run.

Out really late last night so I decided to ride this afternoon. 22 miles @ 17 mph. Not that fast but better than rides a few weeks ago.

Didn't know what to expect today after a longer run on Monday, a bike ride yesterday and not enough sleep. Not too bad a run with a few MP miles in there. Still the weather is ideal... 64 Degrees, 92% Humidity, 62 Degree Dewpoint.

My legs are beginning to have the race pace finish in them but my cardio is still suffering a little.
