Still tired from the weekend and the long drive home yesterday, but I had to get up and run. Did 4 miles near my house in muggy 72 degrees. Took off the shirt after a mile and it was the right choice.

Didn't get to bed until after 12:30 and thought about skipping running this morning but we're going on Trek Thursday-Saturday and I'll miss 25 miles of running so I set the alarm and finally rolled out of bed 10 minutes after it went off and headed out. Nice morning, in the low 60s but was still warm so took off the shirt after a few miles. Went uphill and hit my favorite hard hill although I normally only hit it on Saturdays. Had a nice fast run back down to the house.

Because of Trek changed things up and did my 10 mile loop. Can't say that I've ever done this before work before, but it was actually pretty nice. Might be a wee bit tired today but it's worth it. Nice weather - mid 60s with a breeze. Not sure of my average pace but it was healthy.
