It was a warm day with a nice breeze. Legs felt fine, but I think I was a bit dehydrated by the end. I ran my elementary school loop+ a little more to make it 5. I then did 0.3 with my youngest.

I am definitely not used to the hot weather yet. It was sunny, breezy, and humid today. I decided to run the Lincoln Prairie Grass trail for a little bit, and it was nice. That part was 4.3 miles, and then 0.5 with Izzie.

I ran my housing-school loop+ after a 0.5 warmup with Izzie. It was hot again today after a cool, rainy day yesterday.

It was another nice day with a little cooler temps than last week. We had a cold front and rain over the weekend, so I didn't get my garden started. I felt great today during the run. I even decided to do a couple faster surges. The first one was for 0.4 miles and the second was 0.5 miles. I'm guessing they were around 6:00/mile pace. They felt good. I think I could sustain them for longer, but I'm not used to that pace. I seemed to lose focus and slow down some near the end. I need to find my watch, so I can see my pace.

It felt great to get out for a run today. I decided to run on the Prairie Grass Trail out to the power relay station. I missed my turn in town and went an extra half mile, but it was fine. Legs felt fine and pretty smooth today.

I did a quick elementary school loop in the afternoon. My legs started out tight and a little sore, but they loosened up.

It was a calm day, but nice. I did my housing school loop plus. My left knee was a little sore, but it wasn't affecting my stride.
