Chicago week Six

During the 5 miler on Monday the body is sore from the long run on Sunday. During the track workout on Tuesday I just could not breath.  I am not sure why but I just could not get any air in the lungs.  It might have been I did the workout during the day and not the afternoon.  Well around 21:00 we backed up Marie's truck and took her brother down to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure(IOA) for the next two days.  Well the shoes came with.  We got in late but I was still up at 06:00 to get in 7 before he headed over to the parks.  We then had a great dinner at T.G.I. Fridays.  Well again I was up at 06:00 on Thursday to in in the tempo.  This was a really good tempo for me. It could have been that the gym was filled with nice cool air and low humidity.  Then we went to to IOA.  I will say that the park is great but there was no way I was going to wait in a line for 5 hours to get a chance to go in the wand store in the Harry Potter world.  But I do think this made the rest of the park have shorter lines.  During the run on Saturday I had a little pain in the knee but I think that is from the treadmill runs.  The pain was not as bad come Sunday for the long run.  Thanks again Nancy and Jay for putting it on again.  But I did not have the lungs to run the whole 20 mile run.  It seemed that every time I went up a hill (and it did not matter how steep) I just could not put any more air in the lungs. I had the energy to run more I just could not breath so I thought it would be best and stop at 16 and get some recovery in. I guess the could thing is my mileage is still high and I am loosing a little weight.  Well I guess that is it and on to week seven.  The weeks just keep ticking off.
