My first long run of this year. Felt crummy around the 1:45 point but slowly clicked out the remainder. Drank a lot of sports drink and water throughout as it was humid and I sweat a lot. Pace was around 8:30 to 9:30.

Weight: 0.00

Looks like we both had good weeks. Are you pretty dedicated to weights? I think there is a gold there that I have not found yet. I am going to have my son take me through one of his "leg days", even though it will probably knock me out for the rest of the summer.

Yes, I work weights 1-2 times a week. Not a lot of sets or reps. Heavy weight with a long rest interval. Very important as we age, but it does zap the running a bit.
