A slog for sure.... at least it was kind of cool and overcast. Tried to keep HR down, didn't work so much. Less walking today. Workout #1 done!

I do sooo much better early in the morning... legs wanted to cramp up, then feet, but I held them off... this was supposed to be 2800, but no way was that gonna happen... the 200's got slower and slower, so opted to switch to 50's and cut it short. Workout #2 DONE!

Well, it appears the weather may have something to do with my training day today... woke up 10 minutes before the alarm to hear thunder and lightning, so went ahead and turned it off and slept another hour or so.  Looking at the radar, there is a BIG band of thunderstorms passing by, so I don't think I'll chance the pool until that is over for sure, so my training day which should have been done by noon, will now probably take most of the day!  At least the temps are supposed to be a little cooler, only 89 as a high.

Strange ride.... started out sunny and pretty warm, and about 10 miles in it got real cloudy and dark and I felt the temperature drop. I could see rain way off in the distance, but checked the radar and it looked like I would be okay to finish my ride. I did run into some rain for about 2 miles and then I was out of it again. Wind started from the south and ended up from the North which was to my benefit for once! I'm feeling more secure on the Heds the more I ride them.

So I was a good girl and went to bed early and set my alarm to get up to swim... and I DID get up and was all ready to go.  Today was the day the roofers were supposed to show up and I didn't want to leave until they got to the house and they no showed.  Hubby called and now they are coming the end of the week... whatever!  So looks like I will have to try and make it up tomorrow, but I also have a bike and run scheduled too, gonna be a full morning!

Hot, humid, sweaty... this was an effort in trying to keep the HR under control... first 2 miles were pretty good, but the second half I had to start run/walk, trying to keep the HR down. Walking it would go down, and then once I started running it would go even higher than before until even walking it wasn't coming down much... ugh... I'm really going to have to make the effort to get up early and run in the dark, at least psychologically it should feel better....

Warm, humid, didn't feel any wind. This was a trail run and I hadn't been to the trail since the spring, before all the melanoma crap. The leaves were just coming out then, so there was a LOT more vegetation, sometimes making it hard to see the path, lots of stuff brushing up against my legs. I was REALLY paranoid about snakes, but didn't see any, thank god, but about 3/4 way into the run there was a deer carcass splayed across the path, and leading up to it were some guts and fresh blood. The abdomen was gone and you could see the ribs, so I pretty much got the heebie jeebies at that point, wondering what kind of creature had done that (man, coyote?) and was it still out there in the woods somewhere. It seemed pretty fresh, the blood was still wet on the trail and there wasn't a smell of death yet... Walked a lot after the first mile, and was glad to get back to the car. Thinking I won't be doing this one solo till the leaves are down again and it's cold out...

A pretty good solo ride, felt strong. Had a tailwind for awhile so my speed felt pretty good, but sweat was dripping off my face, so it actually felt good to turn into it to feel the breeze! Beautiful sunny day, low traffic, just nice. Heard a sound on my right at one point and looked over and saw a pit bull chasing me, thankfully BEFORE the hill, so he gave up, he wasn't barking or anything, just chasing, kind of took me by surprise!

AVG HR: 155
Goal was to keep HR in Zone 2 (>154), almost success, but it called for very slow running and lots of walking. It is SO hard for me to keep the HR down when it's hot and humid, once it gets up there it's all over. I'd walk and bring it down and within a minute it was back up over 160. Just gotta keep at it.... and maybe run earlier!! The air felt saturated and I don't know if it was that or me catching a cold, it just felt hard to breathe out there.

Caught a cold and feeling just a little lousy.  Daughter has my car for at least another day, so swimming is on hold for now.  Roofers are coming tomorrow.... this is not my vision of the first week of summer vacation!
