Quick run just to get the cobwebs out from the champagne and wine with dinner last night.

Back from the beach a little early.  Had a good time and some awesome food, but it was just too stinkin' hot.  It wouldn't have been so bad, but the wind was very light and out of the west so the beach was just sweltering hot.  The Thrasher's Fries thermometer sign said it was 103 at 4:00 yesterday afternoon.  It felt like 120.

80 deg and 93% humidity. The only way to describe this weather pattern is "cruel". Glad I got up late and only got a short run in. I would have surely died on anything north of 5 miles. I ditched the HRM and the watch this morning so the time is an estimate. Just felt like running without all the gizmos. Kinda felt naked to be honest.

Headed to the beach for a couple days.  Hopefully there will be a decent onshore breeze because it's most definitely going to be hot.  If all goes well, hopefully I'll be about 3 lbs heavier when I get home from all the ice cream I'm going to eat.  :)

Everybody be safe training in this heat!!

Rode down to Glenn's house to drop off his jerseys then took a quick spin down to the landing. (lots of good childhood memories down there) Saw that crazed lunatic in the Ford with the crooked front license plate. Thankfully, he didn't try to run me off the road again. Rode back to C'ville then met up with Marianne for an easy 21 miles at a conversational pace. First 27 miles were at 20.1 mph. Last 21 were somewhere around 16-17 mph.

Had hoped for a swim this morning because my hamstrings and back are really tight and sore from laying hardwood floors all day Saturday.  The pool was closed due to some kind of problems with the pumps or filtration so I put a couple extra miles on the bike.

Good run this morning. Probally the most consistent mood and energy level for a 90 minute run I've ever had.

I don't think there are grey foxes on the eastern shore, but I saw a really dark one early this mornig cross the road ahead of me. I'll have to research that.

Worked at Bobby's all day.  Turns out that the flooring was dry enough to install (I didn't know such things as a moisture meter for wood existed...pretty cool).  Layed hardwood floors all day.  My back and hamstrings were screaming by lunchtime.

I had an awesome pace (about 20.5 mph) going at about the 20 mile mark. The wind was blowing big time but I had a route that was crosswind for 95% of the ride. I got to mile 20 and turned west to come home and noticed a thunderstorm brewing ahead. Just about that time the wind shifted from south to dead out of the west and I was pushing hard to maintain 15 mph for the rest of the ride. I got really lucky - as soon as I turned onto my street the bottom fell out of the sky. I was pulling into the garage as a major gully washer came through.

Washed and lubed the bikes last night.  Planning on riding this afternoon, working with Bobby tomorrow and a long run Sunday morning.

 91% humidity this morning.  That's ridiculous!
