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.

Morning run 8 miles. Same good feelings after 30 minutes. Can feel my endurance returning and body is recovering well between sessions.

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.
