PM - 5 muddy wet miles on the golf course with Finn and Riley.  Quick dog bath for Finn and then 2000 meters of rowing and 3 more miles on the treadmill.

AM - 3.25 miles in something like a drizzle or mist/fog - maybe mizzle with Finn before work this morning.  Have not seen the sun since Friday.   But, it has been much warmer and humid.

PM - 8.0 miles on the treadmill at lunchtime today.  HR was in a good range - but I felt a little like I was "pushing" more than I should have felt over the last 3 miles or so.

AM - just a shade under 4 miles this morning with Finn before work. 

PM - 7 miles at lunchtime.  Faster pace than planned - probably more effort than called for.  Sun almost made its first appearance since last Friday, but then changed its mind.

PM - lunchtime treadmill 10 miles.  Felt refreshingly easy.  I skipped the morning run today as my legs felt the volume of miles of the last few days.

AM - a little over 4 miles this morning with Finn before work.  First mile was slow and creaky - but picked up by the last 2.  First time seeing the sun come out in a week.  Supposed to rain later today and through the weekend though.  

PM - treadmill tempo.  2 mile warm up then 6 miles at high aerobic pace HRR 75%-80% - which worked out to about 6:47 pace.  Good effort.
