haha... it was depressingly hot and the heat/humidity started early this morning.

I ran the NYRR Queens leg of the 5 borough races today. Thank god they shortened the race to only a 10K it was a half marathon before.

the race started at 8am and it was already upper 80's at start and within 20min was in the 90's. I started to get a headache and a little queasy so I made a plan on the spot to walk miles 2 and 4.

I was out the whole day on saturday at Sandy Hook NJ with the wife and the dog and we were swimming/running around so much the whole day (from 9am to 4pm which was in the upper 90's even on the beach) I just got totally sapped of energy from the whole day (and the 1.5hr drives back and forth plus lugging all that beach crap back and forth ect ect)....

thankfully I finished without conking out... I still needed some energy to go out with the wife again afterwards (ended up walking another 4miles in Prospect park and brooklyn bridge park).

Lots of miles on both the coast in Chile, and in Santiago
Ran a 6k race (approximately) and finished 8th on sunday.
Went snowboarding yesterday -so it is bizarre to hear about the weather being so damn hot in the US

Got lost in Santiago today on my run . . . ended up being a long run!
I was glad to be a runner, and I needed a long run anyways, but it was still a little sketchy when I realized I had NO idea where I was.
Good way to see a city though . . . .

LawrenceMD, I ran that Queens half last year. IMO good decision to shorten it, though I mourn the loss of the Borough Half Marathon series. That park just isn't nig enough for a 1/2, and its so fucking hot. I remember it as a hazy boring delirious maze. Blew it off this year.

Anyway, 10.75 miles for me tonight. Ran the williamsburg bridge twice and then some.

yup it looks like NYRR is actually avoiding any catastrophes (medical wise) where they shortened the Queens to 10k and moved the Bronx to September (originally in freaking August) and shortened it to 10miles too.

in 2010 I ran the 13.1 Half Marathon Series in Queens and just hated the course (twisting and turning around Corona Park). Its perfect for a 10k or shorter though because of its awesome setting (Men In Black flashbacks galore the Arthur ashe tennis center and even Citi Field) and flatness. The super accessibility by subway and even ample close parking makes it a great setting for anything 10k or under.

7.92 miles in 1:02:28 this morning in Central Park. First real run since the race and although I was feeling a bit sluggish I thought I would feel much worse. Now I need to find a race to train for...

4 miles in the midday heat, such as it is

8 x 800m intervals at 3:15 - 3:35 pace, 200m recovery. mile jog to and from the track. I was so used to the 300/100 split that I slowed down after the first 300 and realized - nope, still going.
