PM: standard core routine + 1 hr. pool run

I'm not sure you can even call the conditions today even remotely comfortable. At race time it was 80 degrees with a 74! dew point. That's amazon rain forest. The course was hilly and long. It was for a good cause though. Won a free pair of shoes. I knew going in it would be bad but I pulled out the win uncontested. Not going to count this as a race though as my time was pretty sad and I don't like thinking about it!

very humid again. I guess since this is the mid-Atlantic in June, you can just assume it's going to be a humid, hot, sweaty mess for the next three months.

5:03,5:00,4:59. Wanted to do four reps but legs got real heavy and I felt like shit. Probably didn't recover enough from Sunday's suffer fest and I probably didn't eat enough yesterday

Suds N Soles 5K- the insanely hilly, shitty course 5K that I won last year. I got a free entry so I decided to do it again. I'm not as fast as last year for some reason but I had a good race as I felt good. 

Ethiopian took it out and I ran with Sloane for a bit. Sloane broke away and caught the Ethiopian just ahead. 5:04 auto-split for the first mile. Conrad and I ran together before he pulled away after a rolling hill second mile in 5:03. Third mile is straight uphill--ran 5:29. Ethiopian was dying, caught him about 100m to the finish. When he realized it he sprinted all out to just beat me. Guy was obviously sandbagging since he couldn't beat Sloane. That seems to be the M.O. of local Ethiopians--if they aren't going to win they just give up.

I'm fine with the race since I felt good but I'm just not there because I'm a little heavier weight wise than my optimal racing weight.
