August 7th: 5:45am wakeup. 5 miles easy (36:27). Back to make a quick lunch and realize there is a pile of ants coming out of the wall near the dishes. The only logical thing to do was to spray them down with Clorox bleach cleaner spray (totally humane) and wash some dishes. This prevented me from a real breakfast. Tortilla on the ride over to work. Yes, just a plain tortilla. Nature Valley bar once I arrived at work. Work 7:45am-4:15pm.
Home by 4:30ish. Plan was to run with Derrick at 6pm so just chilled until then. Cut up some sweet potatoes to make fries for dinner. 7+ miles (45:14) with 5x1min after 2 miles into the run. Felt smooth. Barely made it to a port-o-potty at around 5 miles. I started to get goosebumps (that's how close it was). Chatted with Derrick for a bit after the run. Always an entertaining conversation with him. Too much for the blog. Cooked up a burger and the fries. Avocado and onions with the burger. Olympics and bed by 10:30pm.
12 miles on the day with a quicker run. One day closer to the 5k.
