6 miles with the boys towards Coach Powell's house. Overcast and a little bit of rain made it quitie enjoyable. Excited for tomorrow.

Ran with the Circle this morning. Super muggy and hot from the get go. My legs were still flat from Saturday and knew it wasn't going to be pretty. Should have postponed it. Did the warm up, usual potty break, and then got started. I hit 5:38, 5:37, 5:36 and decided I was going to do more damage if I continued to push. Got up to Clyde and he called it good early. Happy we did this because Dave was super sick. Hope we all get feeling better. Drudge fest for the rest of the run. Sometimes this occasionally happens. 

Caught up to the team and ran a little with them to finish off the morning.

First meet of the year went well and was very happy with how things went. Boys and girls ran well. Great start to the season.

3 miles in the morning with the team. 

7.5 miles this afternoon at Bloomington Hills North Park. 2 mile warm up, 3x1 mile repeats + .5 hard finish to push the boys in on the last one. Hit 5:50ish on all three and then "tried" to push the boys in. They dropped me like a bad habit. Hot today but happy with the workout from everyone.

8 hot miles in the afternoon out on the trails. This was the run I was dreading most this week due to the weather. We had a big group of guys for the first 3 miles and I had everyone except the top 7 go back early. The heat was brutal today. Solid run from everyone in the heat. Super proud of both the girls and boys right now. Lucky to coach such a great group of young adults. Very impressed with the work ethic and determination from everyone.

Super tired from the week and ended up sleeping in and just spending time with the family. Pushed the kids over to the park. Totally worth it. Not how I wanted to end the week.
