Finally feeling enough better to do a real run. Most of EL, leg tightened at end so warmed down by walking it in.

1 mile warmup, 2.18 miles in 16:25 for JAXfit 30-min competition. Also did a whole bunch of situps, pushups, bench presses, a few squats and a couple minutes of planking.

Schooner Head trail. Not a great run--ran slow (8:40s) but felt weird and shaky, started sweating profusely on a chilly day. Hopefully sweated out whatever evil humors I had.

Not really fast, but hard. JAX triathlon, did 15 minute row (2.2 mi), 15 minute bike (7.7k) and 15 minute run (1.95 mi). Calf cramp made me start run slow, went from 9:40->6:40 by the end. Pleased to almost make it to 9 miles total (8.93).

Around WHP from the visitor's center. Was going to run slow, but after a 9:47 uphill 1st mile ran the last 2.6 at 8:11s or better. Felt OK, glad to get the run on a rainy/misty day.

Got wicked dizzy--not good. Walked the last 1/2 mile even. Dehydrated? Not sure. Hopefully will not happen again soon.
