I would have rather not ...

...but I did log a 5K lunch run.

Two Run Wed

 Sun was out and the temperature was comfortable so I grabbed my gear after work and headed to the backyard trail logging 6.2Ks.

5K the usual way on my meal break today.  MAX HR was 138 today.  Don' mind the treadmill nearly as much when the weather is cooler and the days are overcast and darkish!

Good Grief

Sure can't "Rest" on your "Running Laurels".    After taking 2 days off I hot the trails for a couple of hours+ on Sunday and today I am suffering the 24+ hour DOMS ... go figure.  Just a little hammy pin that says run every day buddy!    Logged another 5Ker at lunch today.  Hope to take it outside after work tomorrow.... TWO RUN WED ,  maybe!

Monday Lunch

5K done on my meal break today.   The first "lunch runs" of the week are always yield a higher HR the latter in the week.   I topped out at 146 BPM after my 4:45 fartlek prior to the cool down.

Nineteen Point Five

 19.5 laps on the backyard trail yesterday logging 16.8 Ks.    I was feeling a little guilty after taking Friday off building antennas ( lots of hill repeats fine tuning )  and on Saturday it started to rain and I decided to cook instead of Run.   I really have a tough time when the climate is transitioning to COLDer weather.   Its a combo of all of the Ultra season behind me ,  not a whole lot on the race calendar and I really do not ,  i repeat DO NOT like running and freezing.    Si I am always coming up with ways to entertain myself  a little reward for getting out the door.  Sundays treat was setting up my Blue Tooth Speaker in the Tree Stand and blasting the Forest away.  I can clearly hear  the music for a 1/3 of the loop  another 1/3 I hear it but not 100% and for about a 1/3 I hear little bits and pieces.   There are 4 sounds  that carry very well ,  Burton Cummings ,  Bono ,   Snare Drums and the Saxophone.   Apres run was a few beers in the hammock ... dressing in thermal layers with a down filled jacket!   Sadly I started the process of breaking down the man cave carrying the Sub Woofer / Speakers and Battery back the house.    Garmin data was really messed up ....   see below   yup its the same 6 laps!
