AM - 4 miles easy before church.  Very tight in lower back and groin for the last couple of weeks - takes about a 20 mins to warm up to where it feels comfortable.  Bit of a nuisance more than anything else.

AM - 4 miles very early before my flight.  Felt much better today.  I had planned to do a second run yesterday afternoon but was really feeling increasing soreness and tightness in my lower back and groin and so I did some self massage, stretching and decided to take the afternoon/evening off with no second run.  Seemed to have done the trick.

 

PM - got in 6 after work - bit sluggish after a long day of work and travel.

AM - about 5.5 miles this morning- felt ok, but not great.  Seem to be in a bit of a running funk lately.

PM - a little more than 8.5 miles after work on a hilly route. Very slow aerobic effort.

AM - easy 4 miles before work.  Almost felt as humid/muggy here in Atlanta as a summer morning in Florida.

PM - about 9.5 very hilly miles in some parts of Alpharetta that I had not yet run in - slow going but slightly better run this evening perhaps due to a light rain cooling things just a bit.

AM - just about 4 miles easy this morning before heading to the office.  Flight home this afternoon and a meeting this evening may make it a challenge for a second run today.

AM - 8 miles early this morning before work.  Took about 3 miles for me to feel "normal" - little bit creaky and sluggish start.

 

PM - 7.5 miles with Richie in and out of rain showers and storms around Feathersound.  The cool rain was refreshing.
