Another hot muggy morning in Havasu. 

8 miles on the trails with Blake. We took a nice swim in the lake at the turn around to cool off.
 

Then some core work.

I did a little warm up with a few running drills and some sprints totalling about 1 mile while waiting for Blake then we ran 6 miles on the trails. It was actually cloudy this morning with a nice cool breeze, so even though it was 93 degrees and the humidity was back up, it didn't seem too bad.  Then some core work.

13 trail miles with Blake. It was really humid with temps in the 90s. I actually felt pretty good, but Blake totally overheated and had me a bit worried.

It was much cooler (mid 80s) and a bit drier this morning.  Blake and I did 6 out climbing 2264 feet then turned around and ran back down for a total of 12 miles.

I warmed up with a little jog, some drills, and 5 sprints which all totaled 1 mile while waiting for Blake, then we did a 6 mile trail run.  Afterwards I did some core work.  It was a bit cooler this morning.

Looks like I went over 1000 miles for the year today!

10 miles on the TM 1:21:00. It must have been cooler in the gym than usual because my max HR was only 133.

Blake and I miscommunicated about what days we were running trails this week so I had to run the trail hills solo this morning...7 miles and some core work.

Blake and I ran 6.5 miles to the top of Crossman Peak for a 2854 ft climb then ran back down totaling 13 miles. We saw a couple deer on the way down. I didn't think we had deer in Havasu.  I've lived here 16 years and that was a first.

Blake is out of town all week, so I'll be running solo until next week.

Summer, you win! Make it stop!  Uncle!

It was 95 this morning and muggy with a hot breeze blowing out of the south. Yuck!
