Off.

Skipped my long run, skipped any sort of run. Ate like crap and drank. I thought a different setting would improved things, but only marginally so.

Noon: 60' easy progression, ending with 10-minute high aerobic finish from moderate pace down to 5k

PM: 48' easy steady pace. Warm and dry.

Felt pretty decent today on both runs. I didn't expect that. If anyone is in the market for a dad I'm trying to sell mine. Heck, I'll give him away.

AM/Lunch: 63' easy. 

40 push-ups and 4 pull-ups before, 5 after and 45 more push-ups

A terrible month. I'm never under 300 unless it's marathon month. I put up some big summer months last year. Not sure I'll get there this year.

PM: 25'

Wasn't feeling it. Had to cross the road because a dog was chasing me. I sat on the other side of the road yelling at it to go home and trying to keep cars from hitting it. That zapped the rest of my motivation and I had next to zero before I left.

Off.

After feeling so bad yesterday I didn't go out today because I thought I might quit running if I felt bad.
