In favor of National Laziness Day - (its a thing) - I took a day off.  Had a lot going on with family and had to travel for work late in the day.

AM -- 7 miles early morning in Davenport Iowa.  Ran along the Mississippi River - under the super moon.  Here on business.  Ran past a river boat called the "Queen of the Mississippi" which caused me to think of the song "Mississippi Queen" (dreadful) and then I past a freight train with the tracks that paralleled the river trail - which came to a stop.  It was literally over a mile long.

I decided that I like runs along a river.  I have run along some notable ones over the years. Hudson, Ohio, Mississippi, Missouri, Thames, Tiber, Seine come to mind.

AM - up really early to get in 4 miles before work.  Long day. No time for a second run.

PM - lunchtime.  5 miles on the treadmill.  Finally broke down and joined the gym next to my office.  It is way more expensive than I would want to pay - but it is so convenient and there is just no reasonable alternative close by.

AM - 4 miles easy

 

PM - tempo workout on the treadmill - 2 mile warm up and then 6 miles at mid to high tempo with a short cool down.  Felt really solid.
