Arggg!!


      Tired of foot probs! I've been dealing with plantar fasciitis and it's getting old! My running has not suffered because my prevention techniques are working but it is wearisome! Oh to be in my 30's again!! I used to run with reckless abandon. Not, not so much...but at least I am still running. Today was one of those good days. It's when you seem to slip into a zone of ease and stealth. Your running is effortless and supple. I loved it! 4.9 today. Rest day tomorrow! Hope all is well with you! peace!

ZZZZIT


    The sound a bug zapper makes when an insect gets zapped....ZZZZIT! That's how I feel! It is terribly hot, humid and dry!! It is only June! What will August be like? Kinda worrisome! Needless to say I am praying for rain! I slogged a 6.5 miler in the sun and heat....loved it! Hope you are well! Peace!

Warming up


    I am running just a bit faster as we have cooled off a tad. However; it is starting to warm up again!
  I fear a drought is on the horizon. I am already having to haul water to my 1st and second year plants. The garden is drying out rapidly, too. Pray for rain!
    5.7 miles in today! Hope you are well! Peace!

Amazing

     
     It is about 15 degrees cooler than recent run days. It's really amazing how much of a difference temps make...just a few degrees. So, I actually ran at a better tempo! Still terribly slow...I have been doing speed work, though. I expect to get back some of my speed. A pleasent 6 miler today! Hope you are well! Peace!

Nap attack


     I managed a 5 miler today. The temps are dead of Summer so I'm still acclimating to this swelter! I find that I have to take a nap in order to recover! I still love Summer time running!
    On another note a friend of mine suffered a heart attack yesterday! He's only in his mid forties! Thankfully he is ok! Just goes to show, you never know! Hope you are well! Peace!

Forced Acclimation


    So Spring is designed to usher us into Summer but we had no Spring! We are experiencing the warmest May on record! It's been a challenge to adapt to the onslaught of heat!
    My pace speed dropped but I'm still logging the necessary "D". I hope to participate in a 5K June 30. Hope you are well...5 miles today! Peace!

Summer already!


              We have gone from Winter to Summer in the blink of an eye!! I am not complaining because I am a Summer baby! We have been getting a fair amount of rain so right now we have no drought issues but I fear the potential. Without a period of Spring we will dry out quickly!
    I have been running faithfully and have built a nice base of 20+ mile a week average. I am going to run a race June 30, a 5K, see what happens!
    Today 5 miles-this week already 16 miles. Need to be careful and not overdo!! Hope you are well....are you a Summer baby! Peace!
