The heatfest/sweatfest continues.  Got out early today and still hot.  The sun didn't catch me until 7.2 miles so that helped a little.  Good to get out but good to get done.

Great temps this morning up in Island Park.  The run however...was great until mile 6 when my calf went barf...I ended up not running again until Saturday it got sore.

Great run with Oreo on the shore Wheeler/Ice Box loop.  That run just never gets old, great place to be.  My calf made it about a mile before it started acting up, I was able to baby it through the rest without pushing things.

Good run this morning my calf made it through it ok.  Took Oreo's advice and wore a calf sleeve and that helped.  Don't know why I didn't think of that...duh...

My watch kinda weirded out this morning, I didn't look at it until the 2 mile mark and it had my distance at 20ft.  From then on it was correct..whats up with that?

Good run this morning...the calf sleeve is working wonders it feels great.  Kinda warm with the cloud cover but that helped later block the sun so it was good and bad.  Good to get out.

Got out a little early today and that was nice, the sun didn't get me until about 7 miles.  Anyway plan was to run the same as yesterday but for some reason I decided to add the .2 to make it an even 9.

Nice run this morning.  Got out about 5:50 and went for an easy cruiser.  Got back at 13.85 and so I just HAD to add that extra .15....

Ok run because my stomach was blah the whole time.  No stops or problems but still was not good.
