Late Night Runs

August 13th (Monday): Slept in until about 6:45am. No morning run. Protein shake for breakfast. Busy day at work. Veggie wrap for lunch (mushrooms, spinach and beans). Home to have a protein shake and a Clif Bar before picking up Derrick to head up to Saratoga for the harness track mile.

Up to Saratoga by 6pm. Trotted out 4 miles for a warmup. Changed into flats and a couple swigs of Gatorade. Some strides on the track before a 6:55pm heat  (the fast heat of sub 5 guys). An aggressive start and lead until the last 100. 4:32. Happy with the even race. Just don't have that closing gear. 5+ mile cooldown on my own back to our buddy's house. Chilled for a bit before making it back to Ballston Lake.

Spinach and mushroom omelet for dinner.

Tastes better than it looks. Added ketchup.

August 14th (Tuesday): 3+ (23:50) with Derrick at 6am. Protein shake for breakfast. Cold pasta salad made that morning for lunch. Up to Saratoga to grab a new cable box. Checked the mail and did a little grocery shopping before making it back to the house.

Thunderstorm rolled through hardcore around 6:45pm. Made it out for my tempo 10 at 8pm. 10 mile loop (normal one with lots of rolling hills) was on the agenda. Through 5 miles in 28:20. Finished up in 55:42. Trotted off 5:42 for an easy cooldown and 14+ miles on the day.

Yogurt and granola (wicked delicious) for dinner with a protein shake.

Great combo. Coconut chia granola.

August 15th (Wednesday):3+ (21:40) miles with Derrick in the morning, Protein shake with some local (co-worker's father in law) blueberries. Mmm. Kicked it up a notch! Out for BBQ for our weekly staff meeting, Slop bucket. 10 bucks for coleslaw, curly Q fries, pulled pork, and baked beans. A side of corn bread. Destroyed. No picture since I was with a bunch of co-workers and I was wayy too hungry.

Great source of antioxidants.

Home by 5pm. Passed out on the couch for a couple hours. Up at 8pm. Out for an easy 6 miles (43:43) in the pitch dark at 8:30pm. Hi-vis vest and blinking light utilized. Back to stretch, foam roll, and a small couple chicken wraps for dinner. Lunch already made this morning for tomorrow. I forgot we were heading out BBQ for lunch. Worked out well though.

Mixed in a bowl and tossed in a wrap.
