Ode to the Crushed Chipmunk

Your indecisiveness this morning cost you your life. Sorry 'bout that. I took no pleasure in the sound of the crunch under my tire. If it means anything to you, I closed my eyes and cringed. There was no room to swerve and you changed direction suddenly. I'll pay my respects when I run by your flattened carcass later today.

Running Update:

I have been extremely busy lately but things are starting to slow up again. Major projects are being delivered! I have some vacation time! I'm glad to see everyone has been keeping up with their training.

I have also been able to get most of my runs in. My left heel pain has dramatically reduced. I found that if I stretch better after my run, it doesn't tighten up and get real sore anymore.

Rather unwisely, I choose to go for an impromptu Saturday evening run under the blazing sun and 90 degree weather. It was a bit of a struggle. I think people in passing cars thought I was insane.

Saturday's LR:

12.0 miles
7:22 pace

Next week, I'm going to start getting back into some formal speed training at my local high school track. It's been awhile since I did any at all.

Well, if that's your run in the blazing heat, I'd be curious to know how much faster you'd be in 65 degree weather?!
