AM - 7 miles on the treadmill- late afternoon.   Too hot for a run outside.

AM - 5.5 sluggish miles with Finn - to be fair it was a little hilly - but also my legs felt leaden and it was very humid.

AM - just under 6.25 miles with Finn - hilly but I felt stronger today.  Passed a high school aged runner going uphill on the Milton trail - small victory for an old guy.

AM - 5.25 miles with Finn before my workday.  Much cooler out today - though that did not help today with my pace.

AM - 3.5 miles with Finn on Summit/Brittle trails - when I got a text alert on my watch that there was a water leak in my basement - so I had to cut it short and get back home.   Having an issue with a bad check valve in my basement sink pump - with the water coming back up the sink instead of out to the septic tank...yuck.  Helpful to have leak detector devices set up to mitigate water damage - but also, it ruined an otherwise enjoyable run.
