I had to cut the second run a little short.  Much more humid out with dew point near 70.  Here we go again.

Feeling really good after taking a couple days off from running.  Overdoing the heavy weight training last week forced me to take a break.  Need to cut back on sets.

The usual, just a whole lot more sweat.  Hamstrings are slowly feeling better.  Still experimenting to find right level of weight training.

Some very sweaty miles again. I thought about running the Route 66 10k tomorrow, which I've ran before, but not feeling like I'm ready to run hard for that long so staying home.

Some more schwetty mileage. Second run done on the treadmill. Shot some hoops with the family after dinner. Running doesn't do much for the hops.

Tired all over, not sore like last week, just tired. I'll blame the weights and plyos I did Sunday on this again. Second run completed on the mill to give my posterior chain a break!

Slept in this morning and skipped the run.  Ahh, life as a hobby jogger with compulsion disorder.  Ate well yesterday so felt good during the run.  Did my weights workout #2 for the week afterward.

One of those "black dog" days.  I didn't get up in time for a morning run.  Then blew off the lunch run.  Negative thoughts throughout the day zapped me of my motivation.  Just have to let it run it's course.  Persistent rainy weather is not helping.

Went to bed early last night.  Feeling a bit better today.  Still raining out this morning so jumped on the treadmill, but only got to 3 mi because the belt is coming apart and needs to be replaced.  Hope to get in another run later today.

Took a longer lunch break for a nice run.  Cooler and cloudy out so I clipped along very well.  A better day mentally.

My first long run of this year. Felt crummy around the 1:45 point but slowly clicked out the remainder. Drank a lot of sports drink and water throughout as it was humid and I sweat a lot. Pace was around 8:30 to 9:30.

No run, instead a workout consisting of jumping rope, boxing, and weight training.

First run of the day came right before lunch.  Very hot and humid conditions forced me to run slow.  Hope to run on the treadmill later.

No run after work as planned.  Spent the evening dismantling the treadmill for a new belt and deck.  Still not done since it needed a good cleaning as well.  Yuck!

The usual combo.  Weight training and plyos are still taking the small bit of zip I have out of my legs.

Easy paced run throughout with some walking breaks. Losing too much bodyweight through sweat, not sure why. This time lost 4%, which is too much given the dew point this morning.

Before and after work running.  Tired all day because of insomnia last Saturday night.  Might need to add a new Garmin to my Christmas list this year.  My old model is starting to shutdown mid-run for no apparent reason.
