4 miles from home with Hazel. She needs a new harness that is actually no pull as she pulls so hard the first mile, it's annoying. Low average pace as I stopped in mile 1 to fix Hazel's harness. Not a bad run, good temps, high humidity at 62F and 90% humidity. I live in the desert! This is weird to have such high humidity.

Noon: Boot Camp, with guest teacher Lindsay. She is a beast, and a legend at the Y. I haven't been to her classes in years as they aren't the right times or the right exercises for my taste, but she kicked our tails. Did double pyramids at each station, followed by 4 down & backs on the basketball floor pushing sliders with our hands, then followed by 1 lap around the block, which is probably 1/3 mile. I had super shiny shins, and I'm still sweating 35 minutes later. Doubles on light running days should help me prevent injury and get me back into shape quicker than just running.

6 miles from home this morning. Crazy humidity for us; 68F, 84% humidity. I was drenched, but a good prep for Florida next week. Realized shirtless running in humidity is the only way to go, as scary as that is for bystanders. I hope the humane society isn’t called to help a beached whale...

6 more miles this morning in warm temps & humidity (67F, between 78 to 61% humidity). Went shirtless again, and while a scary sight for others, a good choice as I was dripping in sweat at the end. Legs still tired from Monday's double, and from yesterday's 6, so not great times, but I'm thrilled I can do back-to-back 6 mile runs after a 30 mile week last week. Big improvements for me and I'm stoked that my overall health continues to improve. Seizures impact every muscle tissue in the body, and each neuron in the brain. It took me a while to realize this, but it appears to be true. After 6 months of no seizures, and some hard work on my part, I am close to feeling like a runner again.

4 am miles from home. Took the dog/puppy and she pulled me up the hill and I basically dragged her down the hill, silly animal. Next time I guess I'll take water for her, but maybe she'll learn to chill so she has some on the return trip. Headed on vacation tomorrow for 12 days, and we are giddy to go. First 3 days in Bear Lake, then Salt Lake for 1 day, then fly to Orlando & New Smyrna Beach for 7 days then 1 day to drive back to Billings. Can't wait for Orlando - I'm on the only one who's been there. We're doing an Everglades airboat tour and I'm stoked, and can't wait for surfing lessons. should be a blast! And hot, humid, and sticky. Shower X 3/daily should work well.
