16 miles out of Liberty Lake near Spokane. Very hilly. I ran out towards the park at the back of the lake and then did the 8-mile loop to the cabin. ~2000 ft elevation gain. 1:59:xx

8 easy on the levee. I took an unintentional 5 day break. Vacation always gets me. I was doing well at the beginning of the week, but once we got on the road I didn't get out the door.

6 easy. I got a stomach bug over the weekend that wiped me out. I think I managed 8:00 pace this morning... felt rough.

(sigh)

The last 2 weeks have not been good for training. I tend to let things snowball beyond what they should, so I'm trying to put the brakes on it. 6 easy this morning. I'll go for 8 tomorrow and Friday and 12 Saturday. That'll at least get me to 48 for the week.

I couldn't run this morning, so I did 6 with Rylie. 92 degrees with a 77F dew point. Brutal but bearable. Rylie enjoyed getting splashed at the water fountain by Algiers Point.

AM - 4 miles @ MP. Shooting for 6:00 -- splits were 6:08, 6:04, 6:07, 5:46. 6:02 avg.

Swampy conditions, 82°F air and 79°F dew point, but I felt better after half way and the 5:46 was a surprise. This one felt like how a short MP tempo should feel. Finished with 2x35s fast.

PM - 5 easy w/ Rylie.

AM - Headed to City Park for 8x200m on the track. 

34.0, 34.1, 33.7, 33.1, 33.5, 33.7, 34.0, 32.8

82F with a 78F dew point. It felt good to be on the track. I'm slower than I want to be right now, but I suppose that's the point of doing these.

16 miles on the levee, 7:07 avg. Started at 7:46 and 7:21 and then stayed right around 7:00 pace. 80F w/ 72F dew point. That drop in dew point made the run bearable.
