PM - had planned to take the day off.  Been feeling really fatigued and sore and low on energy - so no run in the morning or at lunchtime.  Had a very unexpectedly stressful day at work - so this evening instead of not running I went out for an easy run on the golf course with Finn.  More of a therapeutic than anything else.  Body did not feel too bad during or after.

AM - had a really nice run with Finn on the golf course this morning around 4.5 miles.  Because it is early morning and the course is empty of any patrons - I allowed Finn to run off lead - which I had been gradually introducing for the last few weeks.  He ran the majority of the run this morning that way which allowed him to explore more and get in some nice sprints when he needed to rejoin me at times.  

His blog would probably read:  "Nice fartlek workout this morning with multiple folics and detours - one of which was to introduce myself to a fawn, which I has mistakenly thought was a dog due to his size.  He was shy and ventured off into the woods and I was unable to connect.  Resumed my training forthwith."
