7 miles before work in a muggy mess of weather (9:07/mi).  Side note, I'm working on stopping my anti-d medication, Lexapro.  I've been on and off the stuff since my mother's passing a very long time ago.  Time feels right and it's not good to be on it long-term.  Over time it makes me tired, gain weight, and loses effectiveness. 

Strength training day.
