Kitchen faucet sprung a bad leak yesterday and the orginal home owners did not install a hot water shut off under the sink. Plus I am not sure it could have been more cramped. Well new faucet, new shut offs, and some new lines. So I spent Saturday under the counter instead of running so I did my longer run today.

PM- 70º warm. 2 mile WU and then every other mile @ HMP. Splits 7:13, 7:08, 7:08, 7:13, 7:19, 7:19, 7:20. Rolling hills, not very steep, but enough to be noitced.

AM- 51º at the start and 55º at the finish. Sunny. Ideal temps for sure. The end of the run was tougher as a front rolled in and the last 10 were windy, very windy at times. Went with a staggered run. 5 W/U then 5 at MP to HMP range (7:35-7:20) then 5 Easy then 5 more MP to HMP (7:46-7:25) - The slowest mile was up a gradual hill with a brisk head wind, so just off the MP. I was fine with that. 4 Deer out early and quite a bit of wildlife. Quiet bike path until about half way through others started to come out and use the path. Around mile 9 there were several one man rowing boats in the river. These guys were training hard, I was on and off having run keeping pace with them. I was tempted to yell "ROW", but that is akin to people yelling "RUN FOREST RUN" to me. I hate that. :)
