Short workout is better than no workout.  Warmed up for five minutes and had time for 6 sprints.

Nice fun run.  Early enough that I was the only one on the trail on the way out.  On the way back, I ran into several of the walkers that I normally see on the trail.  It was a good jog.

Allergies killing me.  Something happened with the change in temperature.  Didn't move for most of the day.  Luckily, there was nothing pressing on the schedule.

Sports day.  Took my little girl with me to enjoy a morning of sports.  She didn't care much for it.  After my team lost out in all the competitions, I didn't care much for it either.

Not the best time in the world, but I'll take it for now.  I like to pretend I would run faster if the trail were flatter.  Maybe I would.  Maybe I wouldn't.  The world will never know.

5 mile ruck.  I guesstimate my ruck was about 40 lbs.  Not very heavy.  Started out to do a 4 miler but who does a 4 miler so I added one more mile.  1 hr 32:32.

Probably one of the best runs of my life or at least the most enjoyable.  I got out late but my oldest woke up early and wanted to come with me.  We alternately ran and walked when she got tired for a mile which put us at her school.  Afterwards, we walked back home which should've been a mile as well except that I wanted to take a shortcut.  My shortcut turned out to be longer than I thought and we got lost but got lucky and put back on track with directions from a mother waiting with her kids for the school bus.  We found the trail I was looking for and got home in time to get ready for school and work.  At least now I know where the trailhead is.

22:07.21 to get to school.  49:14.88 to get home.  What a shortcut that turned out to be!

Started out with a 10 minute slow jog for warm up.  Slightly increased the pace for the next 17 minutes.  Took a minute to catch my breath and did 8 reps of 60/60's which used to be 60/120's but I like the shorter rest time so one minute sprint followed with a minute for recovery instead of a two minute recovery.

I guesstimate that I covered at least 2.5 miles.

Was gonna just do a 4 miler than opted for just a little more.  Weather was warmer than I expected this morning.  Walked up a couple of the hills.  Just happy to finish.

Maybe closer to 4 but 3.5 for sure.  Went down memory lane, but there is now a huge housing complex in an area that used to be empty.  As a result of that, lost a little time negotiating the new neighborhood.  Everything else was pretty much the same.  Sort of.  Slower than I want to be as a result of eating too much pasta the night before, but boy did it taste good.
