I ran a race that supports the Georgetown Running Company racing team this evening.  I ran much better than expected!  I had some solid help really pushing the pace in the middle miles from a GRC member.  I wanted to at least break 28:00 and ended up running a PR of 27:02!  I felt strong.  I believe this slight increase in mileage has made a hug difference even without the addition of workouts.  The hill sprints and running twice on some days has really paid off. With a time like that in the 8K I am confident that I will be able to break 16:30 in the 5K by fall!

I was also happy that I didn't get destroyed by the female British Olympian marathoner who also ran the race.  I remember running the first mile in 5:23 and hearing the pitter patter of someone with a very quick turnover behind me.

Holy shit balls it's hot.  I took my lunch break t 10:30 to get in 7 miles before the heat advisory took effect at noon.  My shorts were drenched.  Tomorrow I will have to get up very early to run since it is going to be very humid and 101 degrees F.

with it being 101 degrees with high humidity I took it indoors to the deadmill where I ran 10.5 on a 1% incline.  Started at 8:30 pace and went down to 7:00 for the middle 5 and 6:40 for the final 3.  Even with the incline the treadmill is not the same as actual running in many respects and therefore I will count it as 10.

Ran 10 at 6:30 this morning.  Getting out of bed to run really sucks ass.  I would much rather prefer running after work but the heat and humidity today have prevented that.  At least I got it in.  Sore...treadmill yesterday.  Not used to that.
