Couldn’t make it to the team workout this morning so I got up early, Put my headlamp on, and attempted to run down the trail to the track. Sadly it was completely flooded. Already in a pissy mood due to the high humidity, I turned around toward home. Was going to bag it but didn’t want to wuss out and just did reps on the road. Nice little hill with a turnaround in the middle of each rep so wasn’t super fast but I got it done

AM: 16 miles with the last 5 at MP to faster than MP effort. 

PM: 50 minute pool run

watch really screwed up this one but it went well. Starting to get my long runs a little longer and will add in more quality as the days wear on towards Army 10 and Richmond half. Also the Saucony Zealot kind of sucks for longer effort. They just don't work that well for me. I think I'll ditch them for now. I need to quit falling for the super cheap clearance shoes and go for the models I know that work. I'll use my Vazee Pace, which are only a little better, for the long runs and hopefully the new 890s will be on sale by the winter. You never want to pay full price for a pair of shoes.
