PM - 11.25 miles on the Forsyth Greenway in the middle of the afternoon.  Low to mid 80's - bit of a grinder of a run.

AM - 5.25 miles with Finn this morning - still cool outside.  Bumped into Dan in his neighborhood as he was driving into his office (my office still is not open but his company has returned to work now for nearly 3 weeks).   His meniscus surgery on his knee went well - he's got a few weeks before he will resume running.

AM - 6 miles with Finn - cloudy and a bit warmer and more seasonably humid this morning.  Took me until the 3rd mile today to start running my normal training pace.

AM - 3 miles with Finn on the Milton Trail - very easy effort.  Wore the Vibrams for the first time in quite a while as a possible solution for an increasingly noticeable plantar fasciitis issue.   When I have had it in the past, sometimes running in those and alternating with different drops on shoes helped to alleviate the problem.  I did another mile on the treadmill after work.

AM - 12.5 miles on the bike - first time in quite a while that I ventured out on the road bike for a ride.   Enjoyed it.   So, now of course I have found lots of things I want to change/add to my set up.  
 

PM - 5.5 miles with Riley and Finn on the Alpharetta Greenway late afternoon.
