So, the conservation agents are out in full force today! Three trucks...what's up I wonder? They are catching water bugs! This will give indications of stream health. If people would stop driving their 4 wheelers through the stream it might help!?
Well I was tired this morning, thinking I'd see what my body felt like doing. At about 2 miles I decided to head on home and settle for a three miler....too tired....suddenly I hit a dissociative state and wound up running my 10 miler!! I am glad!! Hope you are well!! Peace!

It may be Fall but the snakes are very active! Saw a very large Copperhead....smashed by a car! Saw a pigmy Rattler and a green snake. Man it's crazy out there! Sadly lots of meanness, too. A form of meanness is inattentiveness. When we become so preoccupied with our social life (cell phone) we can't watch the road!! AARRGGG!
7 miles today. Finished with a 30 mile week! Hope all is well with you!! Peace!

I'm supposed to take the day off after 10 or more milers but I could not resist the call of Summer! As you know and see, Summer is gasping its last breath! Oh how I will miss you Summertime!
But today I got to run in the 90ish, sunshine, humidity....oh how delightful! 4 miles. Feelin' fine! Hope you are well! Peace!

My all time favorite movie is "The outlaw Josie Wales." In the movie one of Josie's compatriots states, "we must endeavor to persevere!"
As a Runner this must be our theme! Running produces fitness and well being and this condition has to be maintained. Fitness can be lost quickly! True Runners, those eternally infected with the running "gene". Will never quit!
I had to listen to my body and take yesterday off. So I endeavored to persevere today and ran a 10 miler!!! Hope you are well! Peace!!

So my forefoot has been burning a little...I massaged and stretched last night. These ten milers might be too taxing. I have so enjoyed this program though! I've run 10 miles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with a day of complete rest in between. Then on Saturday I do a short run, say 3-5 miles. Today I did three and it seemed so short! I did some speed work with 1 minute at mile pace with one minute rest, 6 total....the foot felt grand!! Hope you are well! Peace!

So today I was stopped by a neighbor as he was driving by, he wanted to tell me a joke. He was smoking a cigarette....it really was a nasty smell...I kept dodging the smoke. The joke was funny!
Then a big truck went by belching black smoke...nasty!
10 miles in again!!! I'm goin' crazy folks!! Hope you are well! Peace!

So I am cutting down by about 25% this week. My old body is creaky and sore but still in one piece! I managed a 4.2 miler on the wonde...
I ran 10 miles today averaging 9:41's. I feel like I am peaking and my training has been going well. I just need to hold this leve...
One thing you can't stop....time! That's one reason I love running. The time spent running always has rewards. Instead of sit...
