No run today I had to take a rain day.  Raining very hard this morning and I'm not in any kinda mental state at this time of year to run on a treadmill.  I had a good morning lounging around alone at home doing nothing until I had to get ready for work.

Nice run this morning until the end......temps and humidity cooled down a little and made for a great run.  Last .25 2 dogs came after me, the owner was walking around her yard telling me they won't hurt me not worried at all.  I had to dodge around this dog 3 times as it was coming after me.  I don't care what she said it would have bit me if I would have let it.

Didn't get much sleep last night my brain was going 90 mph, I hate nights like that.  Didn't know what to expect this morning, almost got lazy and didn't go because I was tired.  Ended up going and the plan was to go at least 8.5.  Ended up feeling ok so I pushed it to 11 since I missed Monday.

Yesterday's no sleep caught up this morning.  Had a hard time getting up but once I got out the door I felt good.  Just a nice easy one this morning.

Plan was for 8.5 today but I felt good and decided to add a little to make up some for the rain day on Monday.  Good uneventful run today.  The new Brooks Launch shoes are great, they feel really good.

Good run this morning even though I was super tired trying to get up.  Plan was for 12 but I decided to add an extra mile to make it 13.  Ended up having a little Beagle follow me for the last 2.5, not sure who it belongs to but it followed me so I think I'm now calling this the month of the dog.  Hopefully I don't have any more dog stuff for the rest of the month but I'm not counting on it.

Almost didn't get out this morning, my son and his friends woke me up and I couldn't get back to sleep until 2-2:30 so 5:30 came really fast.  Managed to get out for a nice run on a nice morning.  Slightly breezy today which made it a little nicer.  Uneventful run otherwise, I prefer it that way.

Tired again, slept better last night but it's Monday night catching up.  Felt ok out running I was ready to be done with about 1.5 to go.  A little milestone this morning, I surpassed my mileage for last year today and I still have 4+ months to go this year.

Good run this morning because I felt pretty good today.  I even felt good enough to run a 5K tempo to finish it off.  Now off to work for a good nap;)

Another good run on a coolish, for August, morning.  Pretty uneventful other than some dog tried to come after me, good thing it was leashed and the old lady held on tight enough.  I was worried she wouldn't be able to hold on.

Warm and humid this morning didn't help.  Felt like I was running in slow motion today so it was a real grinder today.  I like to use these days as motivation, if I could do 12 today I can do it anyday.

Felt much better today.  Pushed the first half and then ran a 4.25 mile tempo for the 2nd half.  Started to get a little tired with .5 to go but I pushed through.  Great run this morning.

Tired from the hard workout yesterday but it was a nice morning.  Legs felt heavy for the entire run but it wasn't quite as bad as Monday.  Uneventful run other that there seemed to be a lot of people out today.

Warm out this morning with temps at 72.  Good run felt good for a Friday.  Finished just in time, the clouds started rolling in and a lot of spectacular lighting very close.

Seen something this morning that I wasn't quite ready for, 3 Canadian Geese flew over honking.  Yes, they were headed in a southerly direction.  Hopefully they're just confused and we're not in for an early winter.

Good hard workout today.  It was warm this morning and it looks like this will probably be the hottest week of the year with the heat wave rolling in.  I was doing ok today until about 3 miles left then it started to get hot.  I can tell when it gets around 70 degrees, that seems to be the point when I start to get hot running.

PM -  3 easy after my wife went to school, I was bored.

Warm this morning I was doing ok until the sun came up about 7 miles down.  With about 2 miles to go I was pretty much done.  I was able to finish out but I'm pretty dead now.  Went out and ran the hose on my legs for 5 minutes or so, it was super cold but felt really good.

Hot out this morning, it was pushing 80.  Decided not to push it and run medium pace.  Good run for the temps.  Got sprinkled on for 1 mile and seen a double rainbow, I don't remember ever seeing a rainbow at 7AM.

Didn't really feel 100% this morning but I got out the door anyway.  Fairly good run, I took it easy today.  Toward the end 5 F-15's flew over in formation coming into Hill AFB, don't see them flying in formation much.

Plan was for 8.5 today but I felt like going a little further so I pushed it to 10.  Legs a little tired at the end so I ran the hose over them for 5 minutes.  That's as close to an ice bath that I can get.  Pretty uneventful run today.

Very windy and very warm this morning.  I feel pretty zapped now even though I only went 8.5, what's up with that?
