woke with a sore throat thought maybe was the air conditioner...finally turned it on. Taught spin class and circuit then had a massage. Got all the weeds pulled and 9 bags of mulch out then power washed the back so got a lot done! Thought about running but my throat is raw....took some vitamin C and just chilled the rest of the day. Mentally just havent had the mo jo....I was hoping to find a marathon or 50K close by this weekend but looks like Im gonna have to try to keep myself out there in the forest for a long run.

Went with Louvina and Joe to the trails and decided to explore the backpack trails since the log trucks have been so bad and not slowing down...took the blue blaze and discovered it was the day hike trail that starts on the main road.....they havent been keeping it up so lots of high weeds and I was covered in to the main road and decided to take the main road back to the car. Lots of nice hills today.

Well i totally kicked ass this am.....havent done the full triple t since 2009 due to my sons high school tennis but have completed it 3 times and did the half only twice so had nothing to prove. When I signed up I signed up with a discount code knowing that I would be training for umstead 100 which was 6 weeks ago and really wasnt sure how recovery would go or if i'd be biking or swimming at all...well i did get 4 15-20 min swims in and think 6 bikes with a century last weekend...doesnt quite prepare you for those hills and its hard to train on them due to a lot of dogs on a typical day being loose. I do have a 16-24 mile loop that can get part of some of the courses in it and did it twice. I am pleased with my time and pushed a little harder on the run with the thoughts in my head that i may not go do the afternoon race....its super hot and humid and its a bike swim run format and wasnt looking forward to getting in the cold cold water after the hilly bike but was kinda looking forward to the bike because its an impossible course to do without the race going on due to traffic....has like a 5 mile climb too! The parking is also a mess and I knew if i didnt get out their early i would have to park at the lodge which is up up up and up friday nights course bike hill and that would suck at 7pm tonight to have to bike or walk it to get my then i thought ok just go and if you can find a place to park do i loaded up the car at 2:10 20 min drive and 3:00 start but I wouldnt get to start till later due to time trial start but would still have to be part way there and said not in the mood im just really regrets as it wasnt really a race for me anyways....plan to return and do the half ironman tomorrow....can tell i have swam thats for sure!!! But I did make it all the way up Thompson hill!!!! there was a ton walking it.  Usually Im in the bottom 10 at this race and i think there was like 40 plus behind me!! WHOO HOOO!!!
