No workout for me (or my son) last night. Had to work on my car that threw a belt. I will not miss again tonight!!!

Way to go everyone else.

Pam,
Good to hear the weather is breaking and you will be able to run again.

I agree about the running. Unfortunately most of my running is during the hottest part of the day! I ran for an hour today and the humidity in Va Beach is still pretty bad this time of the year. I was spoiled in Vegas! It may have been hot but it was dry and so much easier to handle!

I also swam/played for an hour tonight at the beach. Water is great this time of year! Big fish and ghost crabs not so much.

Whenever I do get to run outdoors it is a cause for celebration, but I mostly and a treadmill user, just my habit. Last night turned into a late night, so I set the alarm for six instead of five, which means no Y - I got a lovely walk in but nothing to ambitious.

Woke up this morning at 1:30 and lay there worrying for an hour, so didn't get up for rowing. I need to find another way to get exercise today - hopefully after I get some work organized so it doesn't feel out of control.

I agree. I would much rather run in 85* with 20% RH than 75* with 80%RH. I wish I had an ocean closer than 60 miles. And maybe I should add and ocean warmer than 60* The Pacific is pretty darn chilly - even in summer.

We did 100, 200 & 400M (3 reps) sprint intervals today. I do love speed work (although I really wasn't feeling it this morning) but I am looking forward to a nice 6 miler this weekend.

Have an active weekend everyone. Just get out and play!

My condolences Ron-

I didn't do much today, walked around at a Gun Show this morning for a few hours lugging around some ammo. My Bro and I then rode our bikes up to the local pub (2 mile round trip) after spending a few hours shooting.

Going to bed soon- my 1/2 starts @ 7:35 tomorrow morning

SW,
How was the 1/2 marathon? Gun shows are usually fun. (I will be working our family booth at the Denver show next weekend.) What kind of guns were you shooting? We did a shoot a couple of weeks ago with some friends and customers. Had AR-15s, AK-47, Shotguns, 22s, pistols & revolvers. We set up a little 3 gun course where you started with a pistol, changed to AR or AK for a couple of long targets then finished with a shotgun.

The 1/2 went well, I started way in the back and worked my up to the 2:10 pacer at about the 10k mark. I kept my pace just ahead of him for the remainder of the race. However,my right hamstring start to cramp right at the end of run, right before I crossed the finish line. I was able to stretch out before it got all knotted up.
I was a fun run, there was about 3500 1/2 runners and the temps were in the mid 50's and I ran it in 2:02.

As for the guns, I brought my XD9 and AR and my brother had his Sig .40 and a Ruger .22. Blasted through a couple hundred rounds per gun, it was fun having a few guns to choose from. It was a challenge to go from shooting the .40 and then the .22 and then the AR and back to the 9, it was fun exercise.

Nice job on the 1/2 SW! 2:02 is a great time, especially given a leg cramp .

Yesterday was the first longish run I have done since July and I am proud to say that I conquered every hill, and there were some long, steep ones! Felt great, and I didn't feel sore at all this morning.

Today (and yesterday) has been all about getting the garden ready for fall and winter. Here in SoCal winter can be lovely in the garden. That's when we can grow lettuce, chard, and other cool season crops, and I usually have roses for Christmas if I tend to the shrubs about this time of year.
