63, and rain rain rain...lots of it. Part trails, part bike path. Rain felt good, run was slow and taking easy on the wet trails avoiding the potential fall.

Another nice day for a run. 66 and only 59% humidity. So after some of my newly famous Greek Yogurt pancakes I hit the local trails. Today I ran the very winding, hilly, wood&rock steeps and just overall difficult area to get a tough run in. Orange loop x3 and blue loop once. I did have to stop for a moment on lap 3 as there was a baby raccoon on the trail. They are not supposed to be out during the day!? I couldn't get it to move so I jumped over it.  ap 8:34.

Down to the track again, a little warm at 76 with a swirling wind. About a 2m warm up and then did my repeats. I wanted to do 12, but the doc has me around 8 so we compromised at 10. I am not sure if it was just warm or the wind gusts or just the day, but I was not feeling it. Actually I was feeling it and it was sluggish. 10x400 with 200 active recoveries. 1:29, 1:29, 1:32, 1:29, 1:33, 1:29, 1:31, 1:33, 1:33, 1:33.

Legs starting to feel better. Odd thing is I don't seem to have a very good feel of what I'm running some days. I've been right on before, but to today I was running slow and felt like a super easy 9:30ish pace, yet when I looked down at the end it was 8:12ap. Now that's not blazing by any means but over a minute faster than feel with no effort. I would love to harness that. Maybe it was the fact that national running day falls on my birthday... Who knows.

Much has gone on from getting older, daughters graduation party, to thoughts of changing work, finding out I actually had 3 injuries at once and one still nags me. I need to re-evaluate my actual goals from what I want. I feel like, I am not even sure. Hope everyone here is doing great.
