Hotter than I Thought – RunLog 7-8-14

Another morning at ACAR, but this was just to drop off the Toyo, to finish up some stuff. Still I have seen more of Al and Todd than I have anyone outside of the house his week, which is not a good thing. Sure they are great guys, but every time I see them, it tends to cost me money. Oh well the vehicles are in top-notch shape.

When I got delivered back to the house (courtesy drop-off), I talked with the wife for a couple of minutes to update her on what was going on with the Toyota and went for a run.

It was after 10:00 when I got going and by the time I finished, the thermometer at the house said 92F. So it was a bit hotter than I expected to be and did affect my run.

When started out, I was feeling pretty tight from all the sitting, so the first couple of miles were to shake things out a bit and work on my form some more. Yeah I even pushed it a little, one I loosened up.

Then the heat started to bother me and I purposely started slowing down and wasn’t going to push the pace in this crap.

Another ACAR Run – RunLog 7-7-14

Time to get caught up on my running log, it has been a few days and I am falling behind again.

It seems that I have spent more than a few too many mornings at Al’s Certified Auto & Repair shop lately, but the Jeep’s left front tire developed another leak (what is it with me an tires lately), but anyways as usual I wasn’t going to sit around and just wait – I went for a run.

I snuck down through Hallowell (which is mostly downhill from ACAR) and got on the Rail Trail at MM 2.75 and ran down to 4.50 and returned. This section of the R/T is probably my favorite, it is rolling, not flat and there is even shade most of the way.
