Orlando running. About 4 miles in from the sidewalk crossing a drive... Well I got hit by a car. How does this happen? She had to cross 3 lanes and then she kept coming. I realized she was going to hit me, I tried to speed up and she clipped the back on my leg and was lifted in the air and braced my fall with my left arm. Legs are fine, but they are x-raying my arm. Ugh. We'll see

Back home. The x-rays were all negative and by the grace of God I did not break any bones. I have multiple bone bruises, a bone chip and sprains (the left wrist being the worst). Doc said 4-6 weeks until I feel normal. I was able to tie  my own shoes today and guess what? My legs are fine so I went for a run. A little Vitiamin I and 8.25 easy. I have some ground to make up. 

Oh otherwise vaca was great and had a good time! 

PM- about 4 miles easy.

AM- Crisp 50º and loving it. Still very sore in the arms and it does affect some running when I try to push it. Legs are fine though and very pleased about that.

Splits 7:26 (uphill) at the start) 7:22, 7:15, 7:10, 7:11, 6:57, 7:09, 7:19 (slight incline) Lots of runners out tuning up for next weeks AF marathon.

AM- 4.5 Before heading to the Chiropractor. My wrist is still sore and need another opinion. Turns out the urgent care in Orlando was wrong. It is fractured. Swell. It is in an odd spot and might need a pin. We will see. 

PM- 6.1 Miles. Easy.

AM- 64º Big block. Tired today. Did 13x20s striders to stay loose. Humid. AF marathon is tomorrow. Have some local friends running it. Conditions are not the best,  but better than last year.

66º  very humid and sunny. I have been spoiled over the past week with low or sub 60º temps. The AF marathon is today so elsewhere around here was very quiet. A few runners and strollers out, but most of the people are down at the base. My wrist is sore and I am glad I get it looked at again soon. Overall OK run for tired legs. I did not have much spark today and I did not feel like running to be honest, which is why I made sure I did. 3 Miles warm up and 10 miles at MP and the rest cool down. Paces were average, but it was an effort run so I will take it.

AM-70º /100% humid and sunny skies. Yes 100% and clear. Wet. Did some striders to try and wake up. Somewhat quiet and lots of BIG grasshoppers out today. I mean these aren't your granddaddy grasshoppers - they were monsters. 

Good news, after a follow up visit I won't need a pin or surgery on my wrist. I will deal with pain another 6 weeks, but should be OK. Very thankful.

Hot and humid day to run. All state marathons were run under caution. I did my run well before sunrise. 68º/95%. I was done by daybreak, but at that point the temps were rising fast. 

I just took it slow after my busy work week. Saw several deer and a few early morning bikers.

AM- Solid 50º and sunny. Great running weather today. At first very quiet and not much going on but about 7 miles in the people came out. Lots of bikers and some runners. Got some encouragement by some walkers and that was nice. Ran from Rip Rap to Triangle to Island to Riverscape in down town Dayton along the river. Under the one bike bath bridge was a guy with a guitar, amp and a groupie. The acoustics were cool, but I would have like something a bit more peppy. 20 miles, 13 at MP. Felt good at the end.
