Well, so far I've had more days running in July than I've had days off. But that's not saying much. Things are starting to settle down a little after opening Magpie, and there is beginning to be a little light at the end of the tunnel. I don't think I will be logging my miles or times for a while, it will be too depressing. If I can get into a routine of 3+ days a week I know my mind and body will feel a whole lot better. I made it out on Sunday morning, although not with the usual crew, just by myself in Greenfield. I was sore and stiff from a long night in front of the oven, but by the end of about 5 miles or so I felt much more loosened up. This morning I made it out to the trails in Highland Park. The weather was perfect, and the trails were great. I actually felt like I was running, not just plodding along. I worked a bit on form, because I know when things are tight, better form helps to loosen them up. I am hoping to make it out again this afternoon, then to the Wednesday run with the Keenyans. But this time, only 1 warmup run. That would be 4 runs in 4 days. Way to finish up July with a flourish.
