Is there a better way to break in new shoes? I think not!  Humdity was back up but DP was low so today's run was not too bad. 64/88%/59DP- not bad at all. 

There was a 10k on the bike path so on the way through they handed me some water and gatorade. I think it makes a training a whole lot better. I wonder if they will just do that always. Probably not, but its a nice thought.

Very humid- but decent run. Trying to ease into some more milegae and a little faster running. To be honest I am scared of injury again. Just trying to enjoy my running, get back to the starting line and then being competitive again.

Light drizzle for the run and pretty nice day. Better work day and focus was where I needed it. Legs are starting to remember they actually do run. Weird.

Beautiful day to run, The bike paths were full of runners today, The Air Force Marathon (I'm not running it this year) is next month and I saw MANY a runner cramming miles for it. Overall a decent run. Miles 5,10 & 15 at marathon pace. Just easing into some extra running. A few bunnies and deer joined the masses.

Although I ran 15 last Saturday and am eager to ramp up I am trying to do that mythical thing called 'listen to your body' so every 2 to 3 weeks I will be stepping back my Saturday run. So I settled on 10 miles, running 2 at MP and 2 more paced up the hills. Certainly felt like I made it harder and was tired when done.

Wet... 71/99%/70DP.... Saw 2 deer in the river, luckily that was during the warmup so I enjoyed seeing them. I may have to take a page from Joe and take some pics during the run. 

5 Mile warm up, then 6x2Min (7:44, 7:34, 7:28, 7:28, 7:31, 7:32) w/3Min recoveries. Although I ran some MP miles on my 15 and 10 mile run, this was the first intervals in 2 years. Despite the lack of speed I was TOAST.

Easy run, cooler morning which is always welcome. Mowing after and yardwork. That should count as a mile of cross training.

Nice cool morning coming in at 57%. Saw a nice deer family out early including a nice buck. They sure look graceful and nice in the field. They only look better in my freezer, but that is another topic. 

AF Marathon is 4 weeks away and now more than ever the bike path is full of those training and those cramming in some desperate miles. Sometimes it is very easy to tell who is who.... Total A for effort though. 

16 Miles in all. Miles 3-4, 7-8, 11-12 and 15-15.5 I ran at MP. Smoothie, shower and Tilapia since and feel pretty good.

Birmingham, Alabama. Red Mountain State Park. SWEET hilly trails. Tough run, and I needed it.

Why? This travel is wearing on me and yesterdays run was cut short. So last night I was in Savannah, Tennessee. Wanted to run 8, but only got 4. I was in town and decided to run these trails by the river. Pretty area and good potential for wildlife. So I hit the trails and 2 baby deer right off the bat. Nice. Then 2 giant spider webs, not nice. As I go in I am about 2 miles in and I see a coyote roughly 15 feet in front of me. No worries in Ohio they are skittish and run away. Well here he ran for a moment. Then came back with a friend. Then preceded to hold his ground. Well they looked at me and saw my hairy legs and arms and figured it was fur. I think they thought I was some stray cat and a meal. So yes, I took off the other way pretty quickly.... short run. 

Today was much better. Hot yes, 85, humid, but the mountain run was great. Good hill run. Look forward to tomorrow.

Back home, new shoes, got a great deal on some Newtons. 6 on the bike path....

Spent the weekend in Birmingham, marched with 20,000-30,000 people. All Lives Matter. We marched the same roads as Martin Luther King Jr did. It was time, I mean enough is enough with our country and its decaying morality.
