Experienced difficulty since I haven't gone this long in several years. Started early in the morning, but the humidity climbed quickly making hydration very important. I sweat so much that dehydration comes quickly. Carried a hydration pack and thankfully someone left coolers filled with cold water along the trail.

Could only work up to an easy jog for most of these miles.  Tired all over, especially legs.  I know weight training is a good thing for me, but it really sucks running with sore hamstrings and calves. And it's only Tuesday!

Great weather and cooler temps.  Legs feel almost 100% again.  Squats really took a toll this week.

No run.  Strength and power training. I hope the DOMS isn't as bad this time around.

Actually kind of chilly this morning.  Busy day so plan to run again after work.  Have I mentioned that I hate running after work. Got it done, but didn't like it.

Scattered showers around so I started the run on the treadmill at the gym trying to wait it out. While looking out the window I watched other runners trudging through the rain so I soon ditched the mill and went outside. With a higher dew point I knew I was going to get wet anyway. Still building endurance so made the best of the situation while on the trek. Most miles done easy at around 9:00-10:00 minute pace.

Couldn't drag myself out of bed this morning and only had time for one quick run during lunch.  Tis life.
