It's the Dog days when....

     they've pulled the swimming pool under the shade, they are in said pool by 10am, the dogs have no bark or bite just pant! The Folks w/o air conditioning (yes still a reality here in the Ozarks) are under the shade tree in the front yard in a semi-comatose state, the road tar crackles and pops under foot, you run out of water too soon, fat melts off like butter on corn on the cob, and many others...
   Megster....don't take off too long!!
 Oddity: Yesterday I ran for exactly 48:48, today 56:56!?? Isn't that interesting? I really felt good today even though I did toast out a little towards the end of the run. I've had a good week as I only need 2.72 miles to reach 20 for the week. With the 5k coming up Sat. I will surpass the base camp2 mileage need.
  Heel, legs, everything else seems to be feeling good. I hope to find a comfortably hard pace Saturday so I won't be too embarrassed or discouraged by my lack of miles and training.
  Hope you all are doing well and staying cool! Tomorrow I will go golfing!!!! Even if it is 100 degrees, I need my escape time as I get very little down time in my life. No complaints mind you, I love what I do but it's essential to stay refreshed! Golfing has a way of doing that for me not mention I am not half bad at the sport. Peace!

I feel for those without a/c these days... I don't think I could handle it.

Nice job on another run and have a great golf day tomorrow!

It has to feel good exceeding the mileage like that! You don't make it tempting to come run with you though... :) I definitely would not survive without ac! Well, not here anyway. I could make do on a tropical island I'm sure... Lol

And on my side of the planet I had a very cold week of running with temps between -2°C and 0°C. (28F and 32F). Seems like your running is going well even with the heat.

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
