The summer heat is here and I haven’t been getting outside enough. I could have run everyday last week but hardly ran at all. I lost some discipline from my last injury. And then when I do knock out a few miles, I find myself walking it in from the heat. I need to do a better job of running during the week. At least I’m getting out on the weekends though – acclimated or not.
I ran 10 miles on the trail today with a pack of neighbors. It was much cooler this morning but I’m still beat. I actually felt good running but I’m tired now. The air up near Lyons is pretty hazy from the High Park fire. This was the first time ever that I didn’t stumble on the trail. That’s a good sign. Stumbling hurts almost as much as falling – it rips the muscles in your back and stomach trying to regain your balance. I do like trails. I don’t have anymore formal running events planned for the summer, but if I sign up for anything – it will be a trail run. The picture here is in the 4th or 5th mile of the Bolder Boulder.
You have Summer heat, we have Summer rain and it has not stopped all day 😦

We’re sort of a desert state Jules. Here’s a nearby forest fire – I can see the smoke from my house. http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/fires/main/usa/20120611-colorado.html
