AM: 21 progression with a mile cool down. Last 7 in 5:39,5:39,5:38,5:31,5:30,5:29,5:24

PM: 1 hr. pool run

Amazing weather. A little chilly at the start. I forced myself to stomach two gels this time. Ran with Philippe most of the way before pulling away at the end. It felt rather easy as in I probably could have gone a long time at 5:35, no problem, which is a great sign for Chicago in 4 weeks.

Well that's a wrap on hard Chicago training. ran 112 miles this week and I'm feeling great and ready to run my best.

Weather not looking too good for this weekend's race. Pushing 70 and very humid. Every year the weather really sucks at this half marathon and every year I keep signing up thinking it will be different.

Disgusting and humid again. 70 degrees with a 69 dew point...DC turns into a greenhouse just when race day comes around...I'll do my best but if I do my best in a dry 55 degrees vs. a 67-70 high humidity day, my time will be significantly faster on the cooler day. It just sucks because we've been spoiled with relatively cool and dry air most of this month and whatever adaptations to the DC humidity we had have probably left by now.
