Back from leading my youth group on a Christian History Trip the past week. I did not log many running miles, but we easily walked 30+ and I ran up all 294 steps of Bunker Hill monument, starting last and beating all the teens up (passing each on in the narrow spirial stairs). Leg burning. As far as history.... let me talk your ear off about George Whitefield some day.

Back at it here, 6 easy -86º hot and humid.

Up at 4 getting the run in before church. Not to bad at 66º - 3 miles at HMP and the rest just steady. It's very quiet out when you run this early on a Sunday. Good day overall.

AM- 6 miles. Run got cut short as I got trapped in a thunderstorm. Came on extremely fast and flashes were very bright. I'll admit I was spooked and high tailed it to shelter. 

PM- 4+ easy.

4:30 AM run, the classic before church. 10 mile warm up then 6x3min intervals w/2 min active recoveries. I have not done this in awhile and I needed the intervak workout. My legs felt it for awhile. Mowed later on in the afternoon and the helped loosen them up (as well as compression sleeves). Good day.

Hotel TM. Had a cool feature that would put trails on the screen. Nice visual distraction.

74/75% and hotter along the way. 7 MP miles or faster. Heat did get to me and my legs felt like jello after. Kinda surprised me, but you will have those days. Lots of people out getting ready for the AF marathon 3 weeks from now. Wooly worms everywhere!
