Nothing on tap for today.  Just going to chill.  We had people over last night and watched the Bears game and a movie up on our deck.  Had a few beers and too much food.

This was tough. It was hot and humid out. The path was packed as every idiot was out trying to get the prime spot for the air and water show. Don't stop in the middle of the path to figure out the best spot on the beach.

Intervals on the CT

Working from home today.  They are practicing for the airshow.  Just saw a formation of a P-51, A-10, F-16, and F-22 fly by.  Pretty cool. When they come north they turn around right over my house.  Get a great view from our rooftop deck.

Ran home from work. Distance is a guess as garmin had trouble the first mile keeping a signal in the loop.

Ran into Miami9296 out there. Finally got to meet her in person. She really does exist.

Quick swim at lunch. I'm getting pretty burned out right now. Going to take a long break after Chicago Marathon

VQ Ride.

Did a 10 minute warmup and then 3 X 15 LT sets at anywhere from 92 - 96%. Had a 5 minute recovery between. Tough ride, but good.

Doing nothing tonight.  Yesterday was our 7th wedding anniversary and we are celebrating tonight.  Going to dinner.

Quick run at lunch.

Got an email back from the race director today.  She said that the course yesterday was properly measured and that the wind caused everybody's time to be long in the water.  She also suggested that I learn to breath on both sides when swimming, I'll take that into consideration.  I guess the fact that the swim is due east at dawn didn't factor into the equation at all.  I'm done with RAM events and am not going to be purchasing anything from their store going forward.  This race was up there with a Frank Dobbs race, in terms of magnitude of ineptness.  The race director is a moron.
