Camp Week 1

Dear mom & dad,

Well i made it to camp and looks like all my friends are back too. The first couple of days we had some light running. Sort of just enjoy the area kind of runs with some chatter.

Wednesday was the first track workout and coach had us doing a ladder set. Then afterwards up and down the bleachers. The heat index was 103F and that made it even harder. I held in there though and finished strong.

Thursday night was a group run for nine miles only anchor man went the distance. The rest of the campers got to do the easy five option.

Saturday morning i was feeling a bit beat up on the 15 miler and ended up slowing down not by chioce.

Sunday coach gave us a free day. So we headed to the beach for some fun. The sun was hiding so not a lot of fun to be had.

Well i am doing my chores around the cabin. Tomorrow looks like an arts and crafts day with a late afternoon run.

Take care

Interstate 275

Met up with Keith & Kendall for what is starting to be a regular 15 mile run on the trail by the interstate. It's an out & back with the rest station "aid station" at the turn around. Always nice to have a bathroom and vending machines as a back up.

Nice run overall with an even pace on a beautiful sunny day with a temp around 72F.

National Running Day

Hit the track with Andrew for a few repeats 200, 400, 600, 800, 600, 400 & 200. Not to bad total run time was 10:59 with rather even splits.
Post run hit the pub to celebrate the day and Andrew's 150 mile run last month.

Even added a few hurdles in the cooldown.
