Monday: 5 miles
Thursday: 4.3 miles with Fleet Feet
Friday: Weights and 3 easy miles
Saturday: 8 mile trail run + 2.5 mile hike
Sunday: 8 mile easy run
On Monday I did 5 easy, super easy miles. I was still a little congested from my cold, and let myself walk a lot. After that I went grocery shopping... by the way, does it bother anybody else when the cashiers ask "Do you want everything in a bag? I always want to answer them "no, I intend to carry each and every item individually up to my house! taking 40 trips to bring in groceries is my idea of a workout !"
On Thursday I tried out the Karhu seakers with the Fleet Feet group. I didn't like the shoes, but the company and the run were pretty good. So far, this was my hottest run this summer, 90 F ( 32C ). The sweat and the stench were strong with me !

Friday was a busy day at the office, I did not set a single thing on fire! and I got most of my work done too! After work, and weights Roger and I ran in the local park. He ran 2.5 miles non stop, I couldn't keep up and took a walking break at 1.4.
Later on Friday night, I saw that my friend Jodi was going to be doing a run with the Appalachian Running company on Saturday morning on Boiling Springs. I have always been intrigued by those runs, so I put down my beer and started drinking my Nuun, as I planned to join her the next morning.
Saturday Morning, I was up with a trail run in my mind. The run did not disappoint! Because of the trees, it was cooler and the views were spectacular!
After the run, Roger and I had plans to go to Jim Thorpe PA and hike the Glen Onoko falls, and Jodi came along with us.
The hike was quite difficult, but it had amazing views of the falls and the mountains.
After the hike, we went for burgers and beers, because after climbing a mountain, we earned them!
Sunday was supposed to be 10 miles, but my legs and calves were not happy with me. I cut it short and did 8 miles only.
Also, I saw the strangest thing on my sun on Sunday... I was running by the fancy houses in Hershey, and turned to see a couple of trucks that were parked by the curve to see this ...
I guess the Lion is moving out!!
