Jefferson High School loop + Builder Dr - 11.5 miles, averaged 7:38. Pretty warm. Did most of the first 6-8 miles around 8 minutes I think. Picked it up from there.

North side - 6.5 miles, averaged 8:22. My 3-4 inch split shorts became 1 inch split shorts by the end of the run. Sticky.

Might get out later if it storms.

Vinton Woods 10-mile Loop - 10 miles, averaged 7:15. Felt like running something a bit faster, but not an official workout, so I tried to sprinkle in some razzle dazzle. Nothing to write home about. Mile 4 @ 6:21 and mile 6 @ 6:11. I hit mile 26 in a marathon at 6:21 just under a month ago. Pretty depressing, but I've been running just long enough to know how fitness works even if if can be a bummer. Did a light-to-light pickup on Elmwood (.43) @ 5:09. I felt good about that even if I couldn't quite get my feet under me they way I usually do at that pace.

Didn't get a run in today. Megan and I drove to Milwaukee for a wedding. We had a good time.
