AM: 3 mile walk with Andy. Lawn mowing, strenuous yard work.

PM: 5 miles around Liberty Park.

I'm not quite right running-wise. Haven't felt any real energy for a couple weeks. Probably running Jupiter Peak and the trail race at Alta in back to back weekends, while hardcore and manly, was also dumb.

That's 2.5 hours of hard racing one weekend and 1.5 the next on consecutive weekends - and not the type of racing I'm necessarily used to. It's just been a GRIND this week to get in some minescule runs.

I'm not too alarmed. I'll try to take it easy, get some rest, and eat better.

Actually. I'm not alarmed at all. Just the way it is.

Truly a great show but I was out way past my bedtime.

Feelings could be associated with the upcoming change in your schedule with school starting up. I always feel that way during transitions. Think about those cooler fall runs!

You're right about that Bob.

Still 95 here today! Bring on fall I say.
