Monday: Rest day, glorious rest day. Had several friends going out to do runs, and i was surely tempted to go, but my body needed a rest. It was a beautiful day, although it got quite hot towards the end. We stayed in our pjs most of the day, did some grocery shopping while dressed, and then headed back and got back in our pjs. I don't do lazy very well and very often if at all, so it was kind of fun. I caught up on the new show that is the biggest craze, Stranger things, and Andrew and I read some books and watched some Thomas.
Tuesday: 800 meter repeats x 5 at a 9:15 mile/minute pace. Woke up to feels like 82 with a dew point of 70. Thanks Kansas. Thanks for teasing us last week with a hint of fall, and then hitting us with summer again. We decided to not make any decisions till we had warmed up. Well, by the time we did our one mile warm up, we were both drenched. We decided to just do 5 miles, and call it good, which was probably a good thing since my watch died mid run, and it keeps up with our intervals and pace.
Wednesday: 10ish miles on the bike. We got started early enough, but was greeted with an early sunset :( I am not ready for the sun to set so early. We also had our fair share of bugs. Extra protein right?
Thursday: Planned 8 miles. We woke up to feels like 84 and a humidity that put the dewpoint at 73. Plus, there were storms all around us, and I had not slept well due to a situation at work + a toddler that refused to sleep. Melly and I decided we would rather risk running post work, than get stuck out in the middle of no where with lighting.
Lucky for me, I didn't have to go to work as I was speaking at our local high school about running. I started speaking at 11:30, so I decided to take the dogs out and get their 2 miles in before getting ready. I decided to try and add an extra half mile. We walked at the beginning, took a break at 1 mile for a tenth of a mile, took another break at 2 miles for a tenth and then finished up our half for a total of 2.5. We had a short walk back to the house, and both dogs had huge smiles on their faces.

We finished up with our 8 miles later on in the day post melly's work. It was hot, humid, and just down right horrible, but we made it work, and got some pretty pictures during one of our walks.
