I was really pleased with the consistency of my pacing and the improvement is coming naturally with each run. I need to really hit the running St again because I am noticing my right foot getting "floppy" with my strides.

Just like Mike (GSDMIKE) mentioned in his blog today you can really tell that the temps and humidity are starting to take a little toll on running. I noticed my heart rate was increased a trifle bit today and sweat was not evaporating as easily as it has been. Its a good feeling though to get all that crap out of my system.

It was also a great run because was able to tell a little girl dressed in white a congratualtory hello as she obviously had her First Communion today. There was aWelcoming Home party for a serviceman in the neighborhood so I was able to tell the father HAPPY HAPPY day having their loved one home from Iraq. Then there was a neighbor working on a new fence and gave him my approval of a job well done. I was busy! It was a nother great run that is now in the books.

Until Tuesday evening...

Toodles!
