pm--5 Anasazi to the chipmunk junction. Track has filled my weekends, so this is the first run out here for at least a few weeks. Good to hit the dirt again.

pm--6.5 Anasazi w/ Decker. Nice chat even if the heat was bordering on triple digits.

I also knocked out Consistency Is Key by Jay Johnson. I love that he seeks to inform high school runners and coaches and provides resources for improvement.

am--6 Did some loops on grass w/ 8x form striders tacked on the end. 
 

I finished a short book about a lesser-known American runner named Buddy Edelen, A Cold Clear Day by Frank Murphy. Buddy's training is unbelievable. That some of these guys could keep up that intensity for months, let alone years, blows my mind. It is also a testament to human capabilities.
