I ran in the evening in the heat (and rain). Feels good to get out. I can definitely tell that I've lost some fitness.

Olenganty trail.  About 4 miles on woodchips, dirt, or grass...much preferred to asphalt/concrete.  I also did some upper body weights and hip exercises.  Felt better today.

2 miles is definitely better than nothing.  I was exhausted after a full day of yard work.

Ran with my dad in San Diego.  We didn't anticipate going 14, but the route we took ended up being much longer than anticipated (aka we got lost for a portion of the run).  My left ankle has been doing the "lock-up" thing and giving me a bit of grief.  I can run with a normal gait, but when I stop to walk I have a slight limp.  It has come and gone for the last few years but I don't remember ever having equal flexibility in my left and right ankles.  Both dorsiflexion and plantarflexion is limited (vs. my right) in my left ankle.  Also, it looks a bit swollen along the top side of the joint (the skin in between the leg and the foot that is compressed during dorsiflexion).

12 mile run with Denton in Westerville. We averaged 7:00 to 7:30 for the first 6 miles and then did a 5 mile progression run with splits of 6:51, 6:48, 6:28, 6:14, 5:51. 1 mile cool down. Felt great and had terrific company. Denton was kind to go early to accomodate my schedule.

I slept in a bit before work today and only had time for a quick little run.  The new Pegs feel great.  I like my Altras as well, but I think my legs prefer when I can rotate Altras and "normal" running shoes (e.g., ~10ish cm of heel-toe drop) every other day.  

PM - 3.5 more...the morning loop backwards.
