I went for a jog at around 3:20pm. I was planning on a 5 to 6 mile run, but with the high heat and humidity I just couldn't cut it. I kept getting light headed so i cut it short.

I ran an easy 6 miles on the treadmill at the local ymca. I did it in 45mins, no rush just tring to build my mileage back up.

 

Also my father and I work for the same company, and the wellness committee at work has made a 1 mile walking trail. I have started walking it with my father on our lunch breaks. I'm trying to get him back into shape, he just turned 60 a month ago.

Today I got signed up for the Augusta half Ironman (sept 25). My brother in-law and a friend suckered me into being on there relay team (Team One Leg). They both did it individually last year, but they didn't want to do all the extra cross training involved with it I guess. One of them is decent swimmer and the other is a decent cyclist. So I guess thats where I come in. I'll be running the 13.1, too bad I just started back running. I wish I was in great shape to really show out, but we are all in it for fun.

walked a mile at work on my lunch break.

Ran a easy mile outside when i got home. it was late and getting dark, so i cut it short. I dont want to run into bigfoot! Yikes!!

PM, ran only 2 miles today. My blisters are killing me. Bandaids do not help, ive even tried putting tissue over them and holding that down with tape. but there is still tons of firey pain. I think i my just put on my flip flops and ride my bike around for the rest of the week. A little cross training never hurt anyone!
