5k Freedom Run Helke Park, Vandalia, Ohio
Thursday: 10k Road Course / Felt really good despite the
wind and 95% humidity. Managed to run a 7:58 pace. The
first half was at a PR pace, but in the 2nd half the humidity got
me. The first half was up hill and into the wind. I
pushed the pace but paid for it the 2nd half. Event though the
2nd half was with the wind and down hill I could only manage a 7:52

Ran much better than I expected. I was hoping to break 22
minutes with the reduced mileage over the last 3 weeks. The
course was flat but the wind was a little strong. I started
slower than I normally do and felt good most of the way. I
wanted to pick up the pace over the 2nd mile but decided against it.
I felt really good over the last mile except for the final surge
where the wind seemed to slow me down. It was a great event
and the turn out seemed to be way up from the previous year.
The winner ran a 16:21. My age group was very tough this week
and the top Master ran a 17:50. The top female ran a 19:04.
Total miles for the week: 14.75

2nd week in a row that my mileage has been under 20. Work
and Heat have reduced my mileage to where I probably will see a
substantial weight gain. My fat percentage has gone up to 24%.
My reduced mileage will probably continue until the middle of

Easy trail course; however, the lack of training and temperature
kept me from running much faster. My brother won my age group in
20:38 and was the 3rd place master. The top master was 19:26.
The overall winner ran a 16:35

Really seeing my weight increasing with lack of running.
Hopefully I can stay around 210lbs until the middle of August when I
can get back to running daily.

This was a tough course. The first half was primarily down
hill with the 2nd half uphill. I probably ran the first half
to slow considering it was all down hill. The second half was
uphill but I felt really good.

Gained 7 lbs for the month and 2.5 % body fat. Lack of mileage
and poor eating due to work schedule has really set me back. I
should be able to get back on track sometime within the next few
weeks. Hopefully I will be able to get under 200 lbs by fall
and stay there.
