August 12th 2010

Miles logged 6.5
Ran a 5k race last night at 6pm so I was certainly not well rested.  In fact I ran the 5k over a minute faster than the week before and had a gag reflex 25 mins in and had to stop to dry heave, not fun at all.  I had a couple wines and got to sleep around 11pm, too tired to make it out at dawn so I didn't hit it until 9am.  The temps have been in the 90's but this morning it was only in the 80's however it was so humid it didn't matter at all.  The first part of the run my legs were like logs they didn't loosen up until mile 3. Mile one I ran at 12:25 and I thought I was standing still.  I felt so sluggish I was happy with that time. Mile two was 12:09 I felt a little better.  Mile 3 and 4 have some inclines a hill I did 12:30 each,  mile five is run past Subway headquarters and I love that stretch so I kicked it up a litte 11:50 the fell back into the 12:30 pace for the end.   I took 8 o of water which I oly drank half and 1 GU a chocolate.  I normally don't do chocolate but this one gave me a little kick I liked.  I am pretty concerned that I haven't run a 10 mile run in 2 weeks and running 7 miles seems to be all I have been able to do in this heat.   Pre-run feul bagel with peanut butter and a gatorade.
