AM: 8.1 miles. Fresh legs made for a very enjoyable run. 

Lunch: 5 miles. Nothing to report. Heart rate was fine other than typical vagus nerve burping issue that happens every 10-15 minutes.

Great weather for 12 miles on country roads. Thought about blowing this run off again so another mental victory. Too many this week.

10 miles, nothing fancy. Looking forward to the local parade later today. We cut the cable TV cord several months ago and now I need to figure out how I can watch the Tour de France.

Lunch hour run 7.4 miles. I marked these as "easy", but with the heat index at 94.....well you get the point. I held up a lot better than I thought. Need to start running more in the morning though.

Hit the road after work for 12.8 miles. Much better weather and more late day shade made for an enjoyable trip. Actually felt a bit like my old self again. Just enough inspiration to keep me going.

AM: 6.5 miles before work. Tired feeling. Systems weren't ready to go until 40 minutes into the trip. 

Lunch: 5.4 miles. Not really feeling it until the end. New shoes at a smaller size worked well.

Steady 10 miles later in the day. Feeling my stamina coming back. The first 30 minutes of every run is the most awkward. Not sure what kind of run I'm going to have until then.

Easy 6.6 miles before hitting the road. Felt crummy most of the way due to the humidity and gut bomb for supper last night. The horseshoe dish is highly overrated.

Easy 9.2 miles in Parker, CO before dinner with friends. I was surprised since the altitude did not effect my pace even with the additional hills. I was expecting a big slow down, but felt really good thanks to the low humidity. I'm very dry though and drinking water like crazy.

Well, back at it after taking last week mostly off on a family vacation in Colorado. Had a great time staying in Denver with friends who moved there. Hiking around Rocky Mountain National Park and white water rafting were some other highlights. Family really liked it there. So much to do there and trails galore. We already miss it.

All done very slowly. Legs and glutes were shot due to weight workout yesterday. A small victory getting even this done.

Hams were still sore, but oh buddy, terrific weather was calling today. Just had to make the most of it regardless of the discomfort. Plus I watched "Rudy" last night. One of mine and our daughter's fav movies.

Have to be careful as some areas are still sore from white water rafting last week and weights earlier in the week. Recovery seems to take forever after you turn 40. Can't wait for 50!

Same as yesterday sans the weight workout. Don't feel as beat up from weights as I did last week. Another great weather day. Days are getting shorter though. Would like to run more in the morning, but getting before 5am consistently seems impossible.
