Virginia Running - Blog Catch Up

I have been so busy with work that I haven't had time to blog, but I did get some runs in.
First off it is really hot here and humid. The combination is zapping me and drenching me on every run. Good endurance training? Maybe, but wow, my pace is slower and I'm not getting any advantage from dropping 5000 feet in elevation.


I ran after work with Greg H. Who I had worked with for years with at TRW and then NG. He's also from Oklahoma. We ran the W & OD trail after work. He picked me up at the hotel and we ran an out and back that was about 7.5 Miles (I messed up my Garmin). We ran about 6:30 at night and it was cooling off a bit but still humid.

Good to run with you and catch up on suff again Greg.

I got up early Thursday and ran 10 Miles from the hotel to the W &OD trail. I went left at Herndon station for 1 1/2 Miles then back and then right for 1 1/2 miles and then back to the hotel. I left That was 17 Miles with 2 runs within 12 hours, so good relay training. I was wiped out and drenched by the time I got back.

My Garmin Freaked out at Mile 1 with a lap error, never seen that before. In general I've had problems with it here, maybe my sweat and the humidity are causing it problems, cause I've messed it up every run so far, it beeps but does not start/stop right.

I stayed out a bit late with Greg and Todd at an Irish Pub thursday after work, so did not get up early for the Friday run, so I took that day off.

Got up at 8 and ran an easy run around the hotel area. Over to a Farm Park called Frying Pan Farm. Kind of a neat area with farm stuff and horse training and dog training areas. Did a loop in there and back to the hotel for 5 easy. Messed up my Garmin of course...

So I'm caught up now and now I'm off to bed for a good night's sleep so I can get up early and run 17 before it gets too hot
