Yesterday 7 with hills. Today rest. I don't want to push myself and tomorrow I'll be in NJ on a small mountain running trails. I don't intend to get tripped up and slam into a stone wall again. My rib is healing nicely.

6 miles on the rail-trail early this morning. It is shaping up to be a hot and humid week, I will cower in the air conditioning as much as possible.

6 miles on the rail-trail early this morning, I felt pretty good. On the way back I stopped by a gas station for a can of diesel - my tractor ran dry in the middle of the annual meadow mowing yesterday evening.

"Annual meadow mowing."  Do you scare up a lot of kritters?  I remember the baby bunnies when my brothers baled hay.  
8 miler this morning.  It was torture this week.  I was tired.

I don't see many mammals, maybe because the grass is so tall. My main concern is the red-winged blackbirds that nest in the grass - I hope most of the young are up and out by the time I mow.

A strong line of thunderstorms came through yesterday evening, leaving 1.1 inches of much-needed rain and a cool, clear, low-humidity morning. I took advantage with 6 miles on the local roads.

Did anyone see the Men's 5,000 meter final at the Olympic Trials last night? What a strange race!

4.6 miles, and a little recovery yoga.  My lower legs have been bothering me during the night.  I may get out the foam roller tonight as well.  Turkey burgers fresh dug potatoes and green beans for dinner.

I finally hit my first double digit in a long time. On my running retreat weekend I went mountain running. I did have a break at 8 miles waiting for a possible thunderstorm to pass.

I've realized the intense stretching is helping a lot.

6 miles on the rail-trail this morning in cool, cloudy, very humid conditions.

I've never run more than 9 miles at one time, can't imagine double digits on mountain trails.

It's been hard to work up the enthusiasm to run in this heat/humidity, but so far I am managing to stay ahead of my 2016 in 2016 goal. Tue - 9.2, We'd - 10.2, Thursday - 6.3, this morning - 7.75.

Taking the weekend off. Pulling invasive plants with the local watershed association this morning, treating my grandson and his parents to a Thomas the Tank Engine outing Sunday morning.

Has anyone else had trouble with malware on this board recently? I couldn't get past it yesterday.

8.4 miles this morning.

I haven't had any malware problems. I mostly check via an iPad, if that makes any difference.

6 sweaty miles on the rail-trail this morning. Got home and couldn't find my visor, must have driven off with it sitting on top of the car. Again.

Poppy - That's a big week, are you on track for your 2016 in 2016 goal?

Great weather - upper 60s, sunny, low humidity. Did my usual 6 miles on the rail-trail.
Can't resist posting this pic of my grandson and me getting off the train Sunday.

6 early miles on the rail-trail this morning, brings the week's total to 24. Now back in the air conditioning.

Anotherrun - Are you prepping for your first-ever half?

Nazaretti, It will be my 6th half. The last one was 2 years ago, m/l. I have run the Borgess half marathon Kalamazoo, mi 3 times, all at about 2:23:xx. My HM PB is 2:17:xx at the park2park half in Holland. The Sept race is near Appleton, WI.. I haven't seen an elevation chart yet. Fingers crossed. I struggle to get in enough mid week mileage. Doing better at it this go round, but still pretty low mileage overall. My "future plan". Typed with a smirk, is to maintain at the 20-30 weekly mileage range most of the next 10 months and then when I retire, I hope to be able to run more consistent miles and make a run at a new personal best. And, shhh, it's a secret, I really want to train for a marathon in fall 2017. Today, I Ran 10.15 miles Slow, Also, I just had to reset my password on this site. I am going to start a new thread. I have questions....

Anotherrun - I am filled with admiration for you! I cannot imagine running for 2 hours.

6 miles on the rail-trail this morning. My legs actually felt peppy for the first time in ages. I think it's because I finally resolved some difficult issues on my wife's and father's estates, that have been preying on my mind. If any of you have IRA's, I'd advise you to make sure they all have named beneficiaries.

Nazaretti, THANK YOU! After my 10 miler on Sunday, I have been feeling really down this week. I have been so tired and worn out from that run and probably the heat and life. Your words made me smile. Anyway, this week was supposed to be 5 , 3, 5 miles. I have done 2.5, 3. Will do the 5 tomorrow morning. (Positive speak hoping I will actually complete 5).

Not really sure why I decided to run that first HM. But oh well, we had an empty nest, what else to do with 2-2.5 hrs? Very Happy

Naz, glad to see you finished up some business regarding the estates. Sorry, I missed telling you that last week. And thank you for the IRA beneficiary advice. I am going to a retirement seminar at my place of work, US Government retirement system, in September. My gal in HR, just basically told me the same thing, to put down some names so they know who will be collecting. Of course, that will be in 46 years or so. I plan to reach 100! Hahaha....

I did another 10 mile run today. 10.05 at 11m/m pace. Started really feeling tired at about mile 8. An some good rolling hills. I also started a strength routine this week. You do 20 exercises for 30 sec each. It was in this months RW magazine. Feeling it in my glutes. No golf this weekend, it was rainy. Coming week has 5, 3, 5, 8 mile runs scheduled, Sounds great!

Nice run, AR! Comparing your list of the 28th and today's, it seems you got your running mojo back.

I ran 10.3 miles this morning. 187 miles, or some such, for the month. I honestly don't remember right now, the log book is downstairs. and DW and I are watching A Walk In the Woods. And occasionally texting. TTFN!
