PM - hilly route with nearly 1000 ft of vert. on a very warm and humid afternoon.   Grinder of a run - with more effort than I had expected.   Also, I thought the route would give me about 13 miles but was actually pleased that it was only 11.25 as I really did not feel like running much further.

AM - 3.3 miles with Finn before work.  Very warm even before sunrise.  Legs still a bit fatigued in the quads.

PM - lunchtime treadmill workout -  8 x 800 @ 3 mins with a 400 rest.  Warm up and short cool down.  Tough but solid.

AM - 5 miles with Finn this morning - first part very slow.  Had some rain overnight, so it was not quite as warm as yesterday.

AM - short easy 2 miles with Finn and Dan very early, with little time before heading to an offsite presentation for work.  Good to see Dan who is recovering from an injury.  First day back running for him.

PM - following the offsite, I went to the gym and did 4 miles of tempo at HM pace on the treadmill, 1.5 miles warm up and 1 mile cool down.  Solid, but I feel a little more fatigued this week.
