|Speaking of heat and humidity -- a memorial day pig roast in Texas is HOT!|
Last Year's Peachtree is probably my favorite to date of the four I've done (2011, 2014, 2017 & 2018), mainly because it was also the US 10K nationals, and I was able to watch Steph Bruce win on the big screen just before crossing into the starting corral. So emotional!
|The cinderblock oven with aluminum foil plywood lid and vents works very well!|
This has been the longest, biggest, running break I've taken since I started running regularly in the mid 2000s. I intentionally took some time off before Morocco so that my pesky left leg hamstring insertion/deep glute inflammation could heal. And then, the dog bite really reined in any aggressive running efforts while it was healing.
|Fritos on chili -- very Texas.|
Feta, swiss cheese, chicken sausage frittata --
The latest effort to sneak garden greens (chard) into dinner
Here's to hoping I can get the mileage for the week above 15 by Sunday and move forward from there. I've been doing yoga, calisthenics, jump rope, and biking, but other than a few very easy aerobic low-heart rate jogs, I have no real idea where my running fitness is, so fingers crossed...
