Thursday - #753 - 2 miles in a new pair of Hoka Bondis, trying them out for the first time. Also got in a 1Ky swim after work.



I have the Bondi 4 and wear them occassionally. I had one of the earlier Bondi models awhile back, maybe the 2s, they seemed to fit me better. The 4s I have now feel too narrow and clunky. I'm on my 4th pair of Cliftons, and unless they make some drastic change, it will probably continue to be my go to road shoe.

#1027- 7.6 mi
#1028- 7.5 mi
#1029-12 mi, knee was giving me issues and had to ice elevate and wrap afterwards
#1030- 4 mi, easy run, resting knee
#1031- 50k (31 mi) with 6900ft gain. I was set on running 50k. I set my watch to metric. I tried to make alot more noise, clapping etc... and the bears left me alone. Ran into another rattlesnake though. It was making its way across the trail when I came over a small mound. I got closer than either of us wanted and it gave me two quick shakes of its tail and moved off the trail. I also ran into some wild turkeys that I first thought was a stubborn bear that wouldn't clear out despite me making a ton of noise. I almost turned around and changed course, and would have ended up with closer to 35 miles, but I wanted to be done so decided to be brave (with 2 hikers who happened be nearby) and tentatively made my way up the trail. I was thrilled when I found it was just turkeys. Felt fresh at the end, but had some tough moments because of the heat and humidity.
#1032-3.1 mi recovery
#1033- 6.2 mi
#1034- 2 mi. I would have ran more, but alas, I was up early for a long drive to a crab and beer festival! I ate 23 crabs, drank some good beer, and gained 8.4 pounds from this morning to when I got home.

Friday - #754 - 2 miles easy at lunch, Detroit Tigers game in the evening
Saturday - #755 - 2 miles easy in the early afternoon after about 4 hours in the car due to traffic backups from accidents and construction
Sunday - #756 - 3.1 miles in the Ludington tri. I won my AG for the first time ever, 11th overall. 24:15 5K after an incredibly windy bike - including the run from transition with my bike, I was averaging 25mph on the way out, and then turned right around into a brick wall of wind for the way back. Brutal. My legs were working hard, so it took me most of a mile to shake that out and get moving on the run. Think I would've been around 24:00 for the 5K but for the first time ever during a tri, I had to stop to tie a shoe with about .75 miles left. Cost me a few seconds to be certain...frustrated with myself for not getting quick laces on my new shoes yet.

Great job, and nice to see the run worked out for you (save the laces).

Thanks. I know my run times are pretty slow in comparison to how you run, but that was a pretty good run for me. I feel like I am actually starting to turn a corner on some of the running. My "easy" runs are just naturally at a much faster pace now than they used to be, and I think I have a lot of ground I can gain yet.

Monday - #757 - 2 miles easy - some kind of flu or something wiped me out for the whole day
Tuesday - #758 - another 2 miles easy still fighting that same thing, but starting to feel a little better slowly

The biggest scare (more of a startle, I guess) I've had in the bush was caused by a gigantic wild turkey popping out of some trees behind me.

Congrats on this.

#22 - 1.1
#23 - 2.1
#24 - 2.3
#25 - 2.3
#26 - 2.3
#27 - 1.4
#28 - 3.2

Not quite a 15 mile week, but it's my longest week of Streak 3 and I might manage 55 miles for the month.

Its all relative. For just about everyone there are plenty of people who are faster, but in the end, most everyone is just trying to have their best race. And for me, regardless of where I end up, if I raced well, I feel good. And if I worried about people being faster, I'd probably quit after every swim leg of my triathons!

Its been a good week of training, I had a week of vacation, and the kids were away with their grandparents. So I ran alot! (just shy of 100 miles) Kids are back, and school is starting so I will have to be creative to get any good training in over the next two weeks or so. I am about 4 and 1/2 weeks out and feel pretty good.

#1035- 6.5 mi trail with my wife
#1036- 16 trail miles
#1037-13.1 mi
#1038-13.1 mi, same as day before
#1039- 3.1 mi recovery
#1040- 35 mi trail, 7800+ feet of gain, did 3 x 10 mile loops, then 5 miles out and back. My pace was good for a sub 24 hour 100 miler on similar terrain, if I could keep it up, but I'm not really sure I could go sub 24, or if I should go out that fast.
#1041- 4 mi trail with my wife
#1042- 7.5 mi trail with my wife
