Noon: 11.4 miles, averaged 8:43

Did 6 x 45" strides after ~68'

Warm. Folks were doing their annual remote control boat race thingy. They operate really really fast. The poor swans and geese were all tucked together at the other end of the lake.

Looks like I hit the 2000-mile mark. It's been a strange year. For reference this is my history of the 2000-mile mark after I started running in September 2010

Stridlek workout: 3 (6 x 40") w/ 4' jogs, then 5' jog after the last set w/ 2' around 5k race day effort. I hit 5:42 for that, but imagine that if I had to run a 5k right now breaking 18 would be difficult.

A little more than RDE for the 2', but I wanted to push slighly as I am so out of shape, overweight, and feeling crappy. Overcast and very humid. We have had such a mild summer and my fitness level where it is, anything slightly uncomfortable kills me.

So, a bit short rest than last week plus the extra 2' at the end. I believe we will progress to 3', then 4', then 5'. 5' is quite a lot at 5k effort even though this is basically "just" a super stride workout.

Megan and I are headed to Maine tomorrow for my cousin's wedding, such is why I moved my workout to today. I didn't want to run for more than 35-65' on the first day I get there. I haven't been since last June, which was the last time I saw my siblings. I haven't seen my parents since the end of January, which might be a PR.

Off. My cousin's wedding. I didn't squeeze in a run. I tend to lose motivation when I'm here because nobody does anything and I eat and drink too much. My father has become completely intolerable. I don't know why I bother to come.
