Stayed up late, then had a noon meeting, so I hit the Y after work and ran to the rims. I needed to be at the soccer field at 6:30 so that sped up my run as I wanted to do 6. I didn't take water with which was a good and bad thing. Bad because my mouth was parched midway, but good because it's good training. It was only 79F with 17% humidity so I knew I wouldn't die. Legs felt much better than Saturday, looking forward to keeping the momentum going.

So my run yesterday was more like a workout, and I knew that, but I didn't realize it until I tried to run today. It didn't go well. Plodded along, walked a few times, then walked a lot. Then ran slowly back to the Y. Legs were tired.

7 pace miles were called for but I only had time for 6. The 3 out were pretty slow as it's uphill but I pushed the downhill return miles and got close to pace.

AP: 7:53, last mile 6:57 (downhill)

10 miles from home to the church as our family signed up to clean it  this morning. Lots of people showed up, it was great. The run went well but my wife called me twice during and my headphones don't have a Mic so I had to stop, take out the headphones, and  walk and talk. 

After cleaning we headed straight into the mountains for a hike, joined by friends. Added 6 miles of decent hiking, lots of vertical gain to a gorgeous lake. I'd been there once a while back but it was virgin territory for everyone else. Beautiful land we live in.
