I ran to the track this morning and found the gate locked, so when Blake showed up, he drove us down to the island (the only flat place to run in Havasu), and we ran on the bike path.  We did some warm up and then 3 x 1 mile and then coool down. I was way slower today than I have been lately doing mile repeats on the track.  I was in the low 6:20s.  I definitely prefer doing my speed work on the track where I can guage my time and distance better.

Total run:  8 miles

8 easy on the trails focusing on quick stride rate. Had a little spring in my step again this morning for the first time in a few weeks.

Chase is a Cubs fan and they were playing the Diamondbacks last night so we went to the game. We live 3 hours from Phoenix.  Of course he wanted to stay till the end. Since it was late and I wanted to stay awake I took a 5 Hour Energy as we were about to head home. Let me tell you, it worked. We got home at 1:30 and I was wide awake. I layed in bed and read until I got drowsy and fell asleep about 2:30. Then I woke back up at 4:30 feeling completely awake. I layed there and tried to go back to sleep, but gave up at 5:15 and headed to the gym for a run. 

TM- 5 miles at 7mph then got bored with that and started a progression run over the next 5 miles, ending at 10mph. 

Now I'm home and showered and still feeling wired. I'm sure I will crash soon and get a few hour nap. 

Oh and the Cubs won.
