AM - 5 miles with Finn before church - hamstring was a bit tighter and achier than yesterday - pace was slower too as a result.

AM - 5.25 miles with Dan and the dogs on the horseroad trails - very warm today even early in the morning.   Hamstring was marginally better than yesterday but still annoying. 

PM - 30 minutes of easy deep water running in the pool.   Giving the equivalent of 3 miles of running on land.

AM - 6 miles with Dan and Greg and with my dog (Greg's dog is no longer enthusiastic for a run each time he goes, and Dan's dog is really not built for running very quickly or very long).  Super warm and humid for a 6 am start - I think it was 75 degrees with humidity in the 90% range but more signficantly the dew point was in the 70's.   My weather app said it was "dangerously humid".   Anyway we ran at a decent effort of near 8:30 pace for most of the miles with the last couple of uphill miles seeing my HR crest over the LT and perhaps Finn's as well (he was not in favor of adding any more distance to the end of the run when it was proposed).  Hamstring was incrementally better at the beginning of the run today versus yesterday - and I am thinking it may have something to do with the deep water / aqua jogging I did yesterday afternoon.   Hoping it is allowing for better blood flow to the muscles without no impact.   BTW pool running is only marginally more saturating/wet than running outdoors in the current hot and humid conditions.

PM - 30 mins of deep water running after my workday.

AM - 3.25 miles with Dan and the dogs on the new Milton Preserve trail behind my house - super warm and humid - dew point was 75.  Feels like temp at 6 am was 86 degrees.  Busy schedule today - in the office and then a flight to London overnight for work.

AM - over night flight to London - meetings beginning at noon - so I quickly did a 1 mile run provisionally cover my streak in case my schedule kept me from getting a run in the evening.  
 

PM - squeezed in a 3 mile run before 8 pm local time - running on fumes with minimal sleep.  Perhaps pushed the hamstring a bit too much on this one.

AM - after a full nights sleep, I was able to enjoy a leisurely sightseeing run of nearly 13 miles this morning. The hamstring was quite sore and so I kept the pace easy though it was quite fatigued toward the end. Ran from my hotel through Hyde Park, through Westminster and along the river Thames to Tower Bridge and return. Beautiful weather quiet a good start to the weekend
