7.1 mi during lunch, temp was 80! No morning run as legs needed a break. Man, I've got a long way to go.

Increasing my salt and water intake in hopes to lessen my vasovagal symptoms while running. My bradycardia doesn't help matters either. Seems to take forever before my heart and pressure are good to go while running. No fun feeling flush, weak, tired, and overall out of sorts for 30 to 40 minutes at the beginning of each run. I've read that more salt and water can provide promising results.

7.1 mi morning before work + 6.1 mi during lunch, all done easy. Feeling just a bit stronger today. Energy drain and fatigue feeling greatest between minutes 10 to 25. After that I'm good to go. Spoke with the doc about this today. Sounds like these feelings are common as body adjusts its oxygen levels. He emphasized electrolyte levels being maintained, which agrees with my conclusion. Heading back for full physical and blood tests (including thyroid and T levels).

Suppose to be rain tomorrow, hope to avoid the mill. Sure will be nice when I lose the extra weight.

Couple of runs on the t-mill for 12 mi total. All done real easy. I see some resemblance of my former lighter self, but still have a long ways to go weight wise.

15 mi easy before lunch, didn't feel great, the last 30 minutes was uncomfortable. Depletion run with no food. Feet were complaining the most as I stood around way too much last night. Got home and proceeded to mow the lawn, so had a good walk afterward.

11 mi at midday all easy, took about 45 minutes until I felt my systems were in balance since hamstrings and glutes were tired from squats yesterday.

7 mi before work, very slow because the hammies were still "singing". No run during lunch to give them a brief rest.

7 mi early before work + 6 mi during lunch hour

My running has been a slow jog for the most part this week. Legs are taking a long time to recover from squats I did over the weekend. I'm smarter these days as I don't push hard when my legs are still healing, but need to back down the intensity in weightlifting as I build on running. Also have to be careful over the next couple of weeks as this is when injury is more likely to pop up (weeks 3 to 5 of a build up).

Legs had just a bit more pep. Much better than early in the week. Just need to stay consistent and temper the weight training.

Thought a lot about the tornadoes and tragedy in OK. "Only by the grace of God go I". Running doesn't seem all that important considering.

9 + 6 mi, all outside and easy

Good weather, cooler and dry. Body did a complete 180 compared to early in the week. Making progress and feeling good. Now wish the bodyweight would come down more quickly! So easy to pack it on.....

14.5 mi, outside, raining last 30 minutes

Slow weather front moving through so it will be raining all day probably. Try to hop on the dreadmill later this afternoon.  I've found the more I run, the more I complain about cold or rainy weather. Interesting correlation.
