|Part of today's run was along a|
The right knee muttered just a little bit, but not enough to matter.
Wow I just added up the mileage for the last 7 days and it comes to 49.8 miles. That's a lot in a week for an old man - probably too much. Seems like I got away with it today, but I'll cool it now for a couple of days.
Sunday, August 14:
We three explored a nearby short trail that we hadn't used before. Not the most attractive trail, but something new. 1.5 miles at a modest pace.
Saturday, August 13:
With My Sweeties. Walked 3 miles to the park, then 4 miles on the trail, and walked home with the girls again. I did the middle 4 miles at a sub-15 pace, but the other miles were slower. They still count, though!

Six Useful Miles As contrasted with miles with no destination - all training miles are useful of course. Today, though, I strode and ran from home to the park where we run on Saturday mornings, and then back by a different route.
I hustled, so the pace was pretty good. I felt great - no whining.
Splits: 43:11, 39:16, total 1:22:26, pace 13:58.

Five Inches of Rain Last night. In fact I was planning to do some speed training with friends on a nearby track this morning, but when I got up it was still raining so I went back to bed and slept another 2 ½ hours. Must have needed it.
Then I went exploring again, finding five trails (still soggy) and two parks that I never knew about within a half mile of home! Nice run, probably a bit over 6 miles in 1:38:00. The right knee complained just a bit, but only briefly. I try not to run downhill, as that probably isn't good for the knee, but I did a little running on the flat.

Hot & Sticky This was an exploratory run, trying to find trails between neighborhoods. I didn't find much, but went about six miles in about 90 minutes and enjoyed myself. VERY warm and humid, but no other problems
