It was 93 degrees at 7:00 for my you this morning but it was good to be back home on my  desert trails. There was just something wrong about being cold all the time in the middle of the summer that I really didn't like about the Seattle/Vancouver area.

96 degrees at 5:45 this morning! It actually didn't feel that bad though and I ran really slow which helped a lot.

6 miles on the trails

I decided to take my talents to the TM this morning.  :)

6 miles keeping HR under 140

I actually enjoyed that. While it's so blasted hot for a while, I may start doing 2 or 3 of my runs per week indoors on the TM allowing me to get in some faster running.

8 slow miles on the trails on the backside of the little mountains so I could be mostly in the shade as the sun was coming up. I turned around down by a pretty little cove on the lake but stopped and enjoyed the view for about 5 minutes before heading back.
