Time at a premium today.
Friday I took off to recover from Thursday’s episode.
Saturday was a very short 20 minute run to get some blood flow into the legs but that’s all I had time for.
Sunday saw an honest-to-goodness long run (finally). 21 miles with Mike, Jon, & Ozzie. I had the freshest legs as each of my running buddies had run a 5 mile race the day before. Hamstrings a little tight through Mile 16 when I started to feel better. Last miles were the best. Go figure.
Monday: Easy 10 miler. First 5 @ 9:00 pace and second 5 @ 7:12 pace. Took a long time to warmup but I felt ok. However, sleep wasn’t that good last night due to some neighbors resolving housing issues for their college age daughter on their porch last night. I had my window open for fresh air but all I got was a large dose of a family spat. I had to shut my window to get any sleep. So I’m tired today.
And the July reading update:
Old Mortality by Sir Walter Scott – good Scottish yarn
Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks – good WW1 story with some odd jumps to 1978 here and there.
Falconer by John Cheever. Finally finished this vulgar novel after two years of reading one page at a time and putting it down again in disgust each time.
That’s all. Have a good day.
