Training Run (almost)
4 miles in Boost4

Ran after work at the battlefields. Was a bit cloudy, looked like it was gonna rain but the radar said it probably wouldn't. It also said no lightning. Started the run and heard distant thunder a couple minutes in. Kept going and then it started a light rain, then after a while it got super heavy rain. At about 3 miles there was a strike of lightning about 2-3 miles away but the lightning wasn't very often. Continued running and finished the loop. Determined whether or not to finish the run and then a really close bolt of lightning hit. Decided then that I should just wait it out. Got back to the car and waited 5 minutes and the storm wasn't clearing so I went home. When I got home it was storming at all so I thought about finishing my run there, 2 minutes later the storm hit the house. So unfortunately had to call it there.

Tuesday PWO

Primary Workout
8 miles in Boost5

Ran the workout after work at Pole Green. Ran at about 3:30 when it was in the 90's. Did 3 mile warm-up and then took a short break before starting because it was so hot. Had to do 12 minute out and back but instead of doing out and back I just did the first two miles of the college course. Ran so slow. I don't know what was wrong with me but I ran super super slow. Could have been the heat, could have been the thick grass with my shoes not getting good traction. Whatever it was I was running slow and was feeling pretty tired. So it was a bad workout basically.

Ran at LD by myself. Did the normal 8 mile route that Wingo and I normally do. Was going to do strides and stuff afterwards but stomach wasn't having fun so I didn't do any.
