AM 68/99% Humid. Home to trails, lots of HILLWORK. Connector x2, Yellow Loop x1, Orange Loop x1. Switchback City for about 6 of the miles. I also must have been 1st man out on the trails today considering HOW MANY spider webs (I think I heard Golem say  "We could let *herdo it.") I took down single handedly with my face. I actually grabbed a stick for a mile and had it in front of me. My upper body form must have been nice to see. Just 11 miles, but consider my butt kicked.

Early and long day of work so PM run. 

93/72%/98 Heat Index. 2 Mile WU. 3x1Mile Repeats (6:43), was supposed to be 6, but wow the heat was draining - and I could see a thunderstorm in. At mile 8 the front hit me and the temp dropped to 83(100%/89 HI) and lighting and thunder. I finished the last 2 fast.  I cramped some tonight. I should avoid any pathetic attempts at speed, but I really wanted it.

Signup up for a 10K a few days ago. Trying to get my body and legs back to old form and beyond. Honestly I knew being injured for 2 years would take a toll, but I thought I could regain more speed by now. Age is probably a factor as is expectations. Overall a good day to race, temps at 68 for start, but humid (97%) and sunny as always. I paced pretty evenly, and not complaining, but was hoping for just a bit better out of myself. 2nd in age group, I will take that.  Splits 7, 6:52, 7:11 (slight uphill), 6:53, 6:58, 6:56 and 6:26 for the .22.

Next week more miles, getting prepped for a heavy dose of miles in August.

In Amish country. 

AM- 4.25 THICK Fog, 69/97% wet! Hit the trails and cut it a bit short because of work... and well there are critters out when you run in the dark long before sunrise in amish country.

PM- 6.75 84 and warm. Felt ok, easy run. No cars, just a few horse and buggy, rabbits, ducks and a bike team.

Huzzah. Whew. Afternoon was the only time I could run. 86, hot, sunny and wet. 2 Mile warm up, 6x1 mile repeats 5x1 Mile repeats with 1/4 recoveries. I did these at HMP. Well the first 2 faster (7:06) and the last 2 slower, but that was the average. I set out to do 6 repeats, but I was a pretty good ways out with no water and decided not to force the issue. The deer seemed to agree. I did think about asking the Amish that went by on horse if he had any water, but just trudged it back to the hotel.

Hot. Early run. 73º-79º/97%/73DP. Tough run. Lots of sun. This time when I saw the deer I listened to Yasir and got some water. Today was certainly a belt day. No watch, but at least 3 MP-HMP miles in the mix. Once the sun was up the energy just left.
