8 easy + standard core routine. Felt much better today. Perhaps I needed a few rest days. Tomorrow's workout will tell the tale.

just terrible. Legs won't move. feel good through the first lap then fall completel apart. I have no idea what's wrong with me...I think I am going to schedule a doctor's appointment and get a full physical to make sure I don't have mono or cancer or something more serious that could be affecting my health.  I'll also increase my water intake. Needless to say I won't be racing Saturday but I'm just going to keep running and see where I end up. Summer racing is pretty much a joke at this point.

AM: 7 easy + standard core routine, foam rolling, stretching. felt pretty decent despite humidity

PM: 5 easy. extremely hot. 91 but really the dewpoint of 73 was why it was uncomfortable. Your sweat just doesn't evaporate worth shit once that dew point gets up there.


I just got a Garmin. If you want to know my routes and where I run, check out my Garmin connect profile. There is a link on the left by my race schedule.

EXTREMELY humid 72 degree dew point. The sweat just doesn't want to evaporate near the skin and you can cook alive unless you are careful. I woke up early and super hydrated. The good news is that I felt much better today despite the heat and humidity. 5:36, 5:30, 5:25, xx

10 easy before watching the 10K this morning. brutally hyumid and hot as well once the sun came up. ran around on the course to spectate. Times for those who ran were pretty slow. I'm glad I skipped this race.
