AM - 5 miles with Dan and Finn on the new trail.  The off-trail areas were very muddy and the weeds/underbrush quite high - but it was still a nice run.

AM - 4.5 miles with Dan and the dogs on the Milton trail.   He had to head into the office early so we cut it short just a bit.  

PM - late afternoon 2.5 miles on the treadmill.   HR seems to be settling back down in the normal range - will continue to work aerobic miles with increased volume for a while longer.

AM - 4.75 miles with Dan and Finn in his old neighborhood and some on the golf course.  Kept the pace slow to maintain an aerobic HR - he was ok with the slower effort. 

PM - 3.25 miles at lunchtime on the treadmill - avg'd between 8:15 and 8:30 pace at mid 120's HR which is much better than it is outside currently with humidity and heat.

AM - 5 miles with Dan and Finn from Dan's new house which is close to the horsetrail roads - and so that where we ran.

PM - 2 miles on the treadmill - testing out some ideas around HR.   Seems like it is more managable on the 'mill rather than outdoors this time of year.
