Quick update

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.

Hey great job on the long run!

Rather have a dose of family spat than family spit.

You should've just burned the book. Great run on Sunday, it didn't even feel that long!
