Finally got up early enough for a run. 4 miles. So glad to have my garmin back. It's like a security blanket.

Got to bed late so I absorbed the punishing heat and ran at Noon. 84F and 33% humidity. It was a dry heat. Took a water bottle with and dumped it on me on the way back. The legs were definitely not happy and I wanted to walk a few times but continued on. I sure like cool runs better than hot ones. I need a long race to train for. Not having one is killing me. But I sure do like having my Garmin again.

Evening: Played Ultimate frisbee with a big group of church friends and I wore my GPS watch to see how much we ran. 4 miles! Had a blast, soaked my bandanna and shirt with sweat. And my side won. Good times.

11 miles this morning. Very tough with sore legs from Thursday's Ultimate frisbee. I hadn't used my fast twitch muscles in a long time and they rebelled. Walked a couple times today and it felt great. Able to finish strong. Glad to hit double digits once again. Need to go longer one of these Saturdays, but would be nice to have a reason to go long.
