No run today, but biked with today. Ended up doing 12.8 miles, i rode on a mountain bike so I continually slowed her down. She is looking strong for her first triathlon at the end of July, she swam ran and biked today!

Emaurine and I have decided our next marathon. The Mankato marathon in Minnesota towards the end of October. 


I ran two miles in the heat of the day, 105, and was drenched when I came back. Really glad my wife talked me out of more today. Legs felt a little wobbly since I haven't ran in a while, but it will be a fun process building up for another marathon!

Three miles with emaurine this morning. We woke up a little later than we wanted, we were pretty tired from our trip to Brookings. Felt good running with her again. 


This afternoon I defend my thesis at the University. This has been one of my most challenging projects, also the thing I have worked on the hardest. It is also a reason I have not run in a while. I am glad for it to be done and for me to have a little more time to run.

I attempted to run fartleks today. The goal was twenty minutes of thirty seconds fast thirty seconds slow. I warmed up for 5 minutes (.75 miles) then I started the main section of the workout. My legs just did not have it today, I ended up doing only ten minutes of the fartlek workout (1.5 miles) I then continued the rest of the scheduled run at a 7-7:30 pace (1.25 miles). I really got myself out of shape these past two months, but I am looking forward to the challenge of bringing my fitness level back up.

Spent this morning at the lake with emaurine. We swam in the lake, so my first day of open water swimming, (it wore me out!) and then a four mile run in the trails. She biked out to the lake then we swam and worked on her transitions for her triathlon. Finally we ran. The course was perfect for a cross country race, which is what I love! There were quick turns, constant up and down, little to no flat areas, and a big hill at the finish. Finished in under 30 minutes so not too bad of pacing. The day at the lake was made complete with me having two ticks on my legs, and emaurine having one. Hopefully we can have more days like this now that my program is done!
