Run & walk style again, but jogged the last 5 miles without any issue.  Strange as the right knee aches off and on during the first 4 miles, but then disappears thereafter.  Must be some tendonitis with the IT band problem.  I count my blessings just being able to keep moving with the injury.

Jogged the first 5 miles very slowly and walked about 2 min at 5 mile point.  Then ran the rest of the way.  Last mile done barefoot.  Knee still acts up during miles 1 thru 4, but becoming more tolerable.

Ran the whole way without major issue, but right knee hurt afterwards, which is strange since it wasn't hurting this bad after running earlier in the week.  Still an IT band issue.  Very warm and humid out there today.

Easy run with all systems go before, during, and after the run.  After last Friday I thought I would be set back another week with the knee issue.

Easy run with no injury issues.  Just going to run easy over the next 2-3 months while increasing the running time.  Then start incorporating some faster paces.

Felt sluggish the first couple of miles and the very last mile.  Feels great to run without pain again.  Took the kids to see the new Shrek movie last night.  Lots of laughs and popcorn!!

Easy pace and then picked it up just a little the last mile.  Cloudy and cooler day with hardly any wind.  Perfect running weather, but didn't see one person running on the trail.  Nothing but pedal pushers.  Am I the only person that likes to run bike trails?   I can tell that some of the cyclists don't appreciate my company on the trail though.  Just a feeling I get when I make eye contact with them.

Covered 10 miles in butt kicking humidity.  Completely whipped by the end.  Then came home to a rejection notice in the mail for a job.  I thought I did really well in the interview.  Just don't get it.

Simply ran and let my mind go adrift.  One of those days where I'd rather run all day.  Don't feel like doing much else.

A combo of jogging, running, and short sprints with several walking breaks between.  Just a fun run while the kids rode their bikes.

Easy run over a hilly course near my house.  It was misty and very moist outside.  I was soaked afterward.  Hamstrings were a little tight on the uphills.

Easy run with last 1.5 mi in five fingers.  Body continues to recover and responds well to the slower pace of training.

Legs were a little heavy today and the high humidity didn't help.  Finally, passed another runner just before getting started and she definitely appeared to be the long distance type.  Rare to see any runners these days.  I had a funny conversation with one of my daughters while eating lunch.  We were debating if Tweety bird from Looney Tunes is a boy or a girl.  Definitely a boy!

Another day of high humidity.  Enjoyed the run, but became a death march by the end because of dehydration again.  Need to carry a bottle next time.  It's all about the humidity with me.  At least that has been my excuse for several years now.  Did see a couple of runners again.  My thoughts revolved mostly around the high probability of relocating for a job.  Somewhere with four seasons, but less snow would be nice.

Ran as my daughter rode her bike.  We had to make a few stops.  Had a good time connecting with one another.  I thought about my jobless situation.  It can be depressing some days.  I'll probably just need to go the physical labor route if things don't pan out.

Explored a new bike trail today.  Body was out of sorts first 4 miles, but felt great the rest of the way.  Last 3 miles barefoot.  On a side note, I was cat called by a "lady" for the first time while passing through a neighborhood.  Her comments gave me a chuckle, but it was also a bit strange.

Felt like a slug again during the first 4 miles, but was fine for the remainder.  It was heating up fast, which reminded me of a funny article.

PM: Very easy 4 mi before supper.  Lots more heat.

AM:  Easy 12 mi run down a bike trail.  There was some flooding so I got my feet wet within the first mile, which led to a huge blister on my arch by the end of the run.  Other than that I felt really good and strong at the end.

PM:  5 mi in beautiful weather
