Staycation Day 1

Masters swim was a good way to start the day.  I came back home and had breakfast and coffee.  I was supposed to go and get my run in before it got too hot.  I planned to leave at 9:30.  It's 9:32.  I'd better get cracking!

The rest of the day will probably involve reading my book, maybe a little bit of playing on the computer too.  I also need to do a few errands (return item to Kiefer Swim Shop, etc.). I'll hold off on visiting the chaise lounge at the pool until tomorrow.  It's super sticky out today and I think that the weather is supposed to be better tomorrow.

Bond Park-Davis-Apex Park

This morning's run went well. The air was thick and heavy with humidity and I was soaked but all things considered, it was fine. Right now I have a lot of fatigue in my legs and they are simply not fully recovering from workout-to-workout. Another 16 miles in the books at any rate. I got a bit dehydrated but I'm feeling better now.

Note: Ran before breakfast. Two Hammer gels en route. I had the smaller amphipod with me and I should have brought the larger one. I got spoiled with last weekend's weather!

I had a nice ride and a cookout with my parents today. Long run in tap for tomorrow.

Note: Two fig newtons, two Clif bars, one Honey Stinger waffle, two laffy taffies that I grabbed at the Sky Mart convenience store.

Loganberry shoe break in, day 5.  Five hours.  I plan to start running in them next week. 

For those of you with inquiring minds, "loganberry" is purple in Brooks-speak.  They came with purple laces and they were waaayyyy purple.  The lock laces are gray and tone the shoes down nicely.

I went to the arboretum (next door) at lunch today and took some pictures.  Butterflies and bees and spiders -- oh my!

Beaver Creek-Martha's Chapel-Carpenter Firestation

Nice ride. It was a lot less humid tonight than it was last night but a bit breezier. The lake was pretty choppy (for Jordan) when I was in that area.

I hate that the days are noticeably shorter.

√ Ride tonight!

Loganberry break in day 4 - four hours.  Yup, rockin' the running shoes with a skirt look for half a day!

I gave Kevin one last chance to have me not sign up for another 140.6.  I figured that since I am to the really tired phase of training for B2B, I would get an honest answer.  He said to go for it.  What a guy! 

Don't say anything to yourself that you wouldn't say to a friend.
