Oops. Ran like a dumbass in 86 degree heat. I messed up the turnaround and inadvertently cut the “race” short. I guess a cone on the trail means go off the trail instead of “turnaround.” I wish there was a course marshal there or something to let me know.  Upon discovering this at the end I basically DQed myself as I did not run the full course. Missed out on $250 bucks too. I went out way oo fast and dropped anyone else which was a mistake. I should have gone out in 5:20 and sat there.

Even forgetting about the course mess up I didn't run this too intelligently. I would have won $250 bucks but as it was I couldn't claim I won when I didn't run the full course. It sucked out there. I've learned my lesson once again about being too confident heading into a small race and blasting from the gun. I guess I never learn.  Good training day in the heat I suppose.

Woke up this morning and for the first time in a long time I didn't feel like running. The weather was really humid and hot an I was tired. Apparently i have not taken a complete day off from running since May 10. I was due for one.

Very hot/humid again. The ragweed is starting to come into play. Eveything is still wet and more rainforest than dry field at this point yet it's only a matter of time before the allergies come on full bore.

The idea was to do these around 3K effort. I stopped at 12 but attempted a 13th rep but cut is short since I was getting pretty tired. Although I had to wear my pack and shirt when I did this, I think it went pretty well. It's nice to get off the track and go by effort for a change. It's also nice to add a different stimulus in the mix instead of another short tempo run
