4 miles done. The warm-up today, and I rarely do a warmup, was some shovel work at the pool. So dad and I scooped out old rocks and dirt and dropped some new stone down. All told, a couple of hours of work.

The run was pretty decent. Felt nice and easy, but hard, and more ..... glide-ey ..... than normal. I hope that's a work. Just felt like I was moving along smoothly. More so than normal. Anyway, after the sun came out and the weather warmed up, I went out for my run. Did a loop, then another loop, then a circle. Along the way, one neighbor was digging a trench, my dad was smoking a cigar, another neighbor was smoking, my wife was talking on the phone, and plenty of squirrels were seen cavorting in the grass.

And that was it. Another run done.


Temps were about 85F. Humidity was moderate. Wind was light to medium. Sky was clear with a few clouds.

Fluids and Fuel:
Breakfast was two egg whites and two slices of toast. And coffee. Hammer Fizz (grape) during the run. Recovery was a light lunch of crackers and hummus.

Aches and Pains:
None really.

Wore shorts and a t-shirt.

Today's Motivation:
Didn't really have any this morning. Felt like I needed to work on the stone at the pool instead. So when I finished and things presented themselves in the right way, I took a shot and came out on top with a run.

Naughty Neil:
Had a giant serving of seafood tonight. After having waffle fries. Not a great choice but tasty.

Loop 1 - 17:35
Loop 2 - 18:15
Circle - 11:57
Finish - 47:47
