AM -5.25 on the Milton trail with Dan and Finn.   A bit faster since Rosie was not with us.   Dan had to end early for an appointment.   Getting my iron re-tested this morning.

AM - 5 miles on the trail with Dan and the dogs very early.  Still have a cold, and the temps this morning were in the low 40's.   Got my iron test results this morning, and the serum Ferritin was only 1 point higher than it was 6 weeks ago.   I know that test results can vary about 15%+/- day by day, but was hoping to see some more improvement than this.  Will increase supplementation and re-test in about 2 month.  2100 meters of indoor rowing.

AM - roughly 6 miles with Finn in the neigborhood.   Watch battery stopped a little over midway through the run - which was strange because it appeared to have about 35% battery before we started.  I estimated the remaining part of the run.

AM - 8.25 miles with the guys and Finn on the Forsythe greenway - we had to wait for an earlier thunderstorm to move out and we started and a light rain with some breaks.  Good solid training run at a decent pace.  Achilles and hamstring were not great but much more functional and less painful with what was mostly a flat run.
