Biking (W&OD bike trail to mile 1) 3:00:00 [2] 31.0 mi (5:48 / mi)

Up a little before 7. Two bananas - only 1 with peanut butter, 4 Advil (I think), and 2 puffs, and out the door. Had 32 oz of Gatorade with lots of ice in the Camelbak to dilute it. Pushed as hard as I could throughout. Had a GU at about an hour in. Stopped briefly about 5 times for different reasons - bathroom, pictures, to make it the rest of the way up a hill. Still had to walk up the top half of the hill by the house. Next time - all the way to the top!

Trail Run (Potomac Overlook) 1:30:00 [2] 5.0 mi (18:00 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6

Met the VHTRC gang for Anstr's birthday run. Knew I wasn't going the distance but needed the excuse to get out of bed. Two bananas with peanut butter, 4 Advil, 2 puffs, and Gatorade/water mix in Camelbak. Made the mistake of venturing onto the Potomac Heritage trail below Potomac Overlook. Very rocky mile listed separately below.
No blister issues. Enjoyed my time out.

Misc (Rocks) 24:00 [1] 1.0 mi (24:00 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6

Scrambling over the rocks on the trail along the Potomac. Reminder to self - take the detour next time. Not alot of fun because I am hesitant on rocks, and the summer vines were heavy at times on the rocks.
Had a Nutz Over Chocolate Luna bar an hour into the workout. Don't swallow chocolate as well as the Lemonzest bar, so will stick to those in the future.

Mowing/Yard (Mow lawn) 30:00 [1] 0.0 mi

Knocked this out while I was already sweaty and dirty, though it could have gone another few days.

Running (Lake Accotink) 54:20 [3] 4.6 mi (11:49 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Hardrock

Had an errand in Springfield, so thought I may run at the Lake as well. One very warm Luna Lemonzest bar, 4 Advil Liquid, 2 inhaler puffs, and water. Low expectations after yesterday's workout, and wearing the Montrails which don't seem to be cushioned enough for me. Tape blister block to my left heel and off I go.
Watch set for a 5/1 interval, so I run/walk that sequence. Had to walk a bit addional - mostly the uphills. I know, I know, Lake Accotink isn't all that hilly. Just happy to be out. Temps okay except for the ~.5 mile unshaded part.

Walking (Lake Accotink) 1:04:00 [2] 4.6 mi (13:55 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Hardrock

Go around a second time in the opposite direction. Know I will probably walk the majority of this lap, and I do. Only run about 10 minutes. But walked as hard as I could without going into racewalk mode - the fastest was about 14:30 per mile - not too shabby. Average a bit better because of the bit I ran...

Chest a bit tight throughout this lap...

Running 48:10 [2] 4.7 mi (10:15 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6 S10

Fortified myself with 8 Fig Newtons, 4 Advil Liquid, and 3 inhaler puffs - and out the door I go. Have to be back in 30 minutes or so to put the dinner Roger prepared into the oven. Head downhill to Shirlington and then back home. Some walking sections listed separately below. After 3 minute oven break, I ran down to the high school track and ran laps in lane 6 - no stopping. Unadjusted splits: 241 245 246 244 243 237 234. Blister on the usual place - inside heel on left foot...

Walking 22:50 [1] 1.4 mi (16:19 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6 S10

Walked .3, .3 (uphill), .3, and .5 during & at end of the run listed above. Only got slightly rained on. A good workout.

Running/Walking (Wakefield HS Track) 1:03:48 [2] 5.3 mi (12:02 / mi)
ahr:135 shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Weird day - only partial power at work, so no computer, microfilm machine, copy machine etc. Though I had lights, they were dimmer than usual. After school was dismissed, the power would be completely shut off. So, though I am due to stay until 4, and my schedule has nothing to do with the school day, I bailed at 1:30. Came home and had a nice nap.
Not a good food day - two KitKat bars, half a sleeve of Fig Newtons, 1/3 bag of Bugles, on top of lunch.
Pleasant temps out in the low 70s, so I got my running gear on, took 4 Advil liquid and actually went out the door.
Easy jog down to the high school track. Then I had to walk because my lungs were killing me - too much dust sucked in from the bike races yesterday, and because I am so tubby right now... So, at this point I decided to alternate one lap running with one walking. This worked well and lungs finally stopped hurting. Times in lane 6: 414 227 405 221 359 217 350 215 348 225 358 223. Then walked home.
