Too Soon To Tell

I'd really like to say that I'm back in the saddle but it's too soon to tell. But I did go for a run this morning. A very slow run. That wasn't as long as I wanted it to be. And did more walking than I wanted to do. But I did it damn it and it felt good.

Let's see, one neighbor has a new car. I saw three rabbits (thinking of you Coach). And there was steam/fog coming up from the ground. The sun wasn't quite up yet but I could see it through the trees. And despite the flies being angry, I was able to avoid most of them.

And that was about it. The rest of the run was pretty boring.

Temps were about 85F. Humidity was high. No wind. Sky was slightly overcast.

Fluids and Fuel:
Nothing before the run. Plain water during the run. Recovery was two eggs, two sausage patties, coffee, and a bagel.

Aches and Pains:
Some mild chafing thanks to some new underwear in the rotation.

Wore shorts and a t-shirt.

Today's Motivation:
I'm still aiming to lose weight even though I haven't lost as much as I want so far this summer. But I guess slow and steady wins the race. I also wanted to get back to running. I've taken time off to redo a porch on the house we're selling so it was hard to get a run in but now I want to get back at it. I miss it.

Naughty Neil:
Been doing fairly well with food. Although yesterday I seriously came close to caving and drinking a can of Coke. I was just so damn hot and thirsty. Instead I drank a ton of water and iced tea.
