It wasn&#39;t so easy this time, as I realized I hadn&#39;t connected my watch to download splits since April.</p> <p>Anyway, Sunday&#39;s &quot;long&quot; run was 13 miles at 7:28 pace. I thought I was going to run a lot more, but we starting going hard in the middle, a 6:13 mile happened, and I blew up.</p> Sun, 28 Aug 2016 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 27, 2016 <p>8 miles at 10am with Quint, complaining about the heat never gets old.</p> Sat, 27 Aug 2016 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 26, 2016 <p>A zero. I brought my running clothes to work but was overwhelmed.</p> <p>This has happened a lot in 2016, It&#39;s a trade-off that *might* make sense in the short term, but it&#39;s definitely not the way I want to live my life.</p> <p>We have a 9 wk old puppy, not as tiring as an infant, but similar ballpark.</p> Fri, 26 Aug 2016 06:00:00 Thu, Aug 25, 2016 <p>6 miles at lunch with Quint. Today Anna turned five and we gave her a big plastic horse. Yesterday, since our office is near TPA, I looked out the window and saw Donald Trump&#39;s plane landing. You can tell because there is a huge T painted on the tail.</p> Thu, 25 Aug 2016 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 24, 2016 <p>AM: 6 sore miles on little sleep.</p> Wed, 24 Aug 2016 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 23, 2016 <p>When I got home from work I told my wife: &quot;I have a weird request. I just need to lay down and sleep a little bit. Please. Take the kids for one more half-hour, and I&#39;ll take over. And I&#39;ll be good for the rest of the night.&quot;</p> <p>So I took that time and had the crazy micro-nap dreams and woke up fairly functional.</p> <p>Early AM tempo with Christia and Mike G. Ego kick-in-the-pants #10000 to be that guy hanging on to the back of the pack.</p> Tue, 23 Aug 2016 06:00:00
