Drenching rain. It was dark and there was a bit of thunder/lightning happening, so I kept it in the apartment complex just in case it got really bad. I was feeling quite good, except some fatigue/pain in my lower legs. I've realized that pain is because of all the work meetings I've had this week, which means after months in sneakers I subjected myself to 3+ days in heels. Whoops!

Because I was completely drenched when I got home, I opted to throw my soaking wet clothes in the laundry and jump right into the shower, rather than drip rainwater all over the floor. That means I'll be doing my core/hip routine later tonight.

Not quite 70 and the barest bit of drizzle. I love this weather!

Oof. My lower legs did want want to play today. It rained pretty heavily last night, but there weren't any super slick spots since there still aren't many leaves on the ground. Still shorts/tshirt weather, but not hot, which is my favorite!

So much cooler! It truly feels like fall. My HR felt it, too, with me having to push harder to get my HR up.

I was excited for the pool opening today, but when I got there, it doesn't open until 1pm. Boo! Even the locker rooms were closed, so I had to drive back home for my shower. Oh well. Recovery run tonight.

When I headed out it wasn't even 60 degrees. The sun was shining, I was sweating buckets in the best way, and it was generally a fun day out. It is so odd to have my "long" run be 36 minutes. But again, I am enjoying the BarryP plan. Nothing hurts! No fatigue!

So, a few hours later into the day, and I can say that my hamstrings are feeling sore. Is it from today's run, or getting on the bike for the first time in two weeks yesterday? Who knows. Nothing bad, just feeling a bit tight when I stand up after sitting for awhile. I cannot wait until tomorrow when I can get back in the pool. I'm really excited to see if there's any visible changes at the pool. I heard they were going to be putting in some stairs on the deep end to accommodate those who have trouble with the ladders.

To the Farmer's Market. Now that tri season is over, Peggy gets to come out to play more often! Gorgeous early fall day, and not too hot. It was tough going getting up the hills, though. Man, this bike is so much heavier than I remember. :)

Farmer's Market return trip. Did you know that it is impossible to ride on a beautiful day, with donuts and apple cider in your saddlebags, and NOT smile?

Nice and easy does it. Wore the sunglasses I got as swag from Reston. They're so lightweight it's like they aren't even there. So far I like them.

Recovery run tonight. This whole "run less but more often" thing is really odd. Yet, I don't feel tired or hurt or anything, and in a matter of months my volume will be doubled (perhaps) so I guess all is well.
I'm enjoying my last day with long hair today, so of course am having doubts about the appointment for tomorrow's big chop. After months of bad hair days, it is looking fairly fantastic today. Ha!
