AM - travelled to Indianapolis with my grandkids to experience the total solar eclipse.  Did 6 miles around the city - which became a sort of adventure run in which I stumbled upon a track which I learned later was used for the USATF championships in 2008 - and part of the IUPUI campus.

AM - did a workout today - 15 min warm up then 6 x 1 min at 6:50ish pace alternating 1 min rest - and then 6 x 30 seconds at 5:45 pace on the IUPUI track and then a 15 min cool down.   First time I have done a workout in a very long time.  Was cautious to begin, not wanting to cause any injury or hurt anything that is healing or not quite yet healed, but overally this went reasoanbly well.

AM - easy 4.25 miles in the neighborhood with Finn.   Discontinuing the statin again.   Way too much achiness and muscle soreness for a training block and I do not want to become injured again.

AM - workout - progression run.   5 min warm up - then 20 mins at 8:30 pace then 10 mins at 6:30 pace and a 5 min cool down at Milton HS in the rain.   Good solid effort.  Have not run this fast in a very long time.  Felt good.
