PM - 5.25 miles with Finn after a long day of work around the house and yard.   Quite warm out today too - in the 80's.

AM -4.5 miles with Finn on a muggy morning.  Rained overnight and we are evidently going to be in a wet pattern this week.   Legs were really leaden today - probably from the all of the squatting and standing I was doing over the weekend with some household projects.

AM - 5.5 miles with Finn on a humid morning.  Rained most of the night.   Celebrating my 30th Wedding Anniversary today.  We were supposed to be in Hawaii.   That trip has been postponed due to COVID19.

AM - 4 miles with my neighbor Dan who is still injured, but reached out last night asking for a run.   He's got a torn meniscus and needs to get the procedure scheduled.  He feels like he can not make it any worse by running on it until the surgery, so we did about 4 miles easy and had a nice chat.

 

PM - 4 more miles with Riley after my workday.

AM - just under 5.25 miles with Finn and Dan on the golf course.   Dan is have a PRP procedure on his hamstring injury this morning and then shortly thereafter he will have the knee surgery to repair the torn meniscus.  So this was his last run for a couple of weeks as he figures it.
