97F -> 88F.  Whew, these things are getting harder...both the courses and the temperatures.  Pretty well-paced again, moved up 3 spots in the second half of the race.  This was the most technical so far - feet feel bruised up a little thanks to all the jagged rocks.  My shoes have a rock plate but not a very substantial one I guess!  ow

4 @ 8:14 AP.  Set out to do 10 and pulled the plug.  Really long work week, probably ~14 hours/day at work but only 3-4 hours/night of sleep.  bad combo...2 non-running days next.

12 solo trail miles in Bandera before volunteering for some trail work.  I ended up wheeling (measuring) 9 miles of the Bandera 50k/100k course with another guy.  That was a decent effort unto itself!

75F, 98%.  17 @ 7:13 AP.  10+ on the warmup, then 2 x 5k at the track, 800m recovery in between.  Reps were 20:12, 20:13.  My light broke on my Garmin so these were paced blindly.  In hindsight I took it pretty easy on myself, but we'll call it 30k race-specific effort, in prep for my last 30k series race (even though a 30k on those trails takes 3 hours, not 2).

This weekend it looks like I'll do some pacing work at the Habanero 100...a hundred mile trail race that starts at high noon in mid August in SE Texas.  I don't get it either.

8.5 @ ~8 min pace.  Pumped to do some pacing tomorrow.  Last year the 100 miler had a 97% DNF rate (I'm running with the one person that actually finished).  This year it should be a little cooler with the rain so maybe they'll get some more finishers.

Last night time 30k trail series race!  Best finish, tough course, and I wound up 1st overall in the series of 4.  I think maybe only a dozen or so people actually ran all 4, but whatever!

73F, 92%.  14 @ 7:02 AP.  Last 4 @ 6:08 AP - kind of a progressive LT effort (6:24, 6:15, 6:03, 5:49).
