PM- 74º muggy. I wanted some warm weather to train in to toughen me up. Sometimes you should be careful what you wish for. Ran 7 tempo miles in the middle of the run, 7:19 AP. Pace was what I wanted, but I should have done more, but my legs were just tired today.

AM- 61º Recovery run, 5 miles. Very dead legs. 

PM- 78º Humid. 8 Easy. Roads to bike path where is was very very quiet tonight. Almost too quiet. Legs better than this morning, but still a bit tired. No deer, but a chipmunk on caffeine and roids wanted to race me.

AM- 55º and that cool breeze was nice. Striders 11@20s 3k+ pace. Peaceful morning, wrapping up around the time the school kids were walking. Today they were a pleasant group as almost all waved or said hello. I thought maybe I reverted back to the 1950's, because usually they do not even make eye contact.

48º light rain and some serious wind. Easily 15 MPH sustained with some big gusts. Not as many people out as I expected with the cooler temps. However 3 deer, baby rabbits, 3 rowing teams all decided to join me today. It was the first time I noticed the coach was in a motorboat. huh, just like track coaches often get to ride the bike. Why did I listen to a gym teacher 100 pounds overwight I'll never know. Anyway, today was more about steady miles than fast ones. 8:20ap for the majority and mile 22 @ 6:43 (I was surprised I had the legs for that one).
