am--9 Hell's Hole Loop w/ some pick-ups and a little addition in the dog-pound direction. It was toasty this morning, but we had a pretty good group through the first 3 pick-ups. After that, we pushed to the minutes. Not everyone was feeling great today, but finishing each run, especially long runs, more aggressivley will reap rewards. RHR--51.

am--6.25 Out-and-back on the Dino Tracks road. I never know how I'm going to feel when we get going--the achilles is morning-tight, and I'm old--but once we started, I felt great. We had a nice little group, including Josie. Good climb and good finish. We also tried some guided visualization. Hope to get some feedback as we do that throughout the season. RHR--53. 

pm--Erg and weights. I did 15 minutes (3.5k) on the erg and then lifted. 

I also finished another book, Spring Snow by Yukio Mishima. It's a story of star-crossed lovers in early 20th-Century Japan. It took a little longer than expected because my reading habits are lax in the summer. Nevertheless, books like this make up about 97% of my travelling. Books are a great way to travel through time and space and get a firsthand account of a culture.

am--6 River Trail from Confluence Park towards Green Valley. Not too far into the run, we took a wrong turn and got bigmanned by a lawn mower--not Alli, she works at a different golf course. But we got back on course and had a good run. I'm proud of how the girls sing and have fun and then push the last few minutes of every run. 6x striders after (not barefoot today). RHR--54.

am--8 Moe's and Zen w/ the Cosmic Cruisers. It was a slow burner, but we got to chat about lots of things. This run was also my first run w/ sunglasses. They actually augment the trailrunning experience. We'll see how integral they become. RHR--53.
