10 easy on the dreadmill.  Fu*#%^& hot again, 102 with high humidity.  It is supposed to break tonight and this week looks like it will be in the mid 80s.  Looking forward to actually running outside and not getting sick.

10 easy after work on the C & O towpath.  My legs had no pop in them.  This is due to three days on the dreadmill due to the heat.  I still feel the dreadmill is not that great and should only be used for 100+ degree days or blizzards. Oh well. I couldn't get a good sense of my pace either.  It will be back in a few days.

8.5 easy. My legs feel like shit. They are not too fatigued but there is no pop to them and I feel slow.  The culprit is three days on the dreadmill...I did some barefoot strides and drills after the run.  Hopefully the spring in my step will come back.

I didn't run today...achy joints and I'm dead tired.  The great part about it is I can take a day off whenever I want...no team or meets to be accountable for.

Easy 10. Great day for a run.  I'm going faster now on my easy days but I'm not realizing it since I'm going by perceived effort.  I still want to go no faster than 7:00 pace but today's run was slightly under.  Probably the cool temps and the fact that I took off yesterday.

I had to work today out in Alexandria so o my way home I stopped back in at my office in Foggy Bottom and changed into my running clothes. I ran the 3.5 miles out to Fletcher's Boathouse in Georgetown, ran a 4 mile race as a quick tempo with the DC Roadrunners, and ran back to my office. Not a bad day.  Tired.
