Basically the same run as yesterday up at Jeremy Ranch except I waited until 3 PM when it was 85 degrees to do it today. Hard, hot, dusty (lots of cars up there tearing up the dirt road - I have grit in my teeth). Ran the uphills pretty hard so I could get my heart rate up without too much stress on the legs. Don't really know how hard exactly as I did the run without a watch or Garmin.

I'm really knackered and my foot hurts but it feels good to run hard so I don't care too much.

That's true Jake. Don't think I can make it today though. Too much work to do.

I think we are just going to stay close to home today too. We didn't get home until after midnight so tonight's bedtime is probably 7pm

Don't know what the hell knackered is though.
