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.
