I wake surfed for my first time. That is way cool! &nbsp;I&rsquo;d like to do more of that.&nbsp;</p> <p>Unscheduled rest day.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 18 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 17, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-17-2018.html <p>15 miles then core.&nbsp;</p> <p>I was surprised at how good my legs felt today.&nbsp;</p> Fri, 17 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Aug 16, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-16-2018.html <p>10 miles at a recovery effort.&nbsp;</p> <p>Core</p> Thu, 16 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 15, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-15-2018.html <p>TM 21 miles, lots of sweat.

That was my first 20 or longer run since I almost killed myself at Havalina last October. My longest run since then was 16 back in February. For me that is a crazy long time without doing at least 20.&nbsp;</p> <p>Then did my core work.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 08 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Aug 07, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-07-2018.html <p>The one day of nicer weather was nice, but back to being hotter and more humid today.&nbsp; Once again I had to stop and buy more drink 7 miles into my run or I wasn&#39;t going to make it home.</p> <p>10 miles then core.</p> Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Aug 06, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-06-2018.html <p>Ahh, the dry air! It is so nice! It was 92 degrees this morning but the humidity was down to 15% and it felt so great on my morning run.</p> <p>10 miles then core.</p> Mon, 06 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Aug 04, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-04-2018.html <p>I was feeling much stronger today so I did 14, but on the TM.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 04 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Aug 03, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-03-2018.html <p>I was feeling worn down this morning, so I only did 6.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>Then core.</p> <p>TGIF</p> Fri, 03 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Aug 02, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-02-2018.html <p>Just when I thought it couldn&#39;t get any nastier outside, it did.&nbsp; I debated running inside on the TM but decided it would be good for my legs to go slow anyways after yesterdays run, so I slogged out 10 miles really slow with lots of fluids and I still was wiped out by the end.</p> <p>Still did my core work though.</p> Thu, 02 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Aug 01, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-08-01-2018.html <p>I wanted to run a bit farther and faster this morning but with the heat conditions I had to move it inside to the TM.</p> <p>14 miles at 8:00 pace then core.</p> Wed, 01 Aug 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 31, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-31-2018.html <p>10 miles really slow. It was almost 50% humidity, which for us desret rats is crazy high. I had to stop at a gas station and buy a drink to refill my bottle. I never have to do that.</p> <p>Then core.</p> Tue, 31 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 30, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-30-2018.html <p>Cooled down to 97 this morning at 5:30!</p> <p>10 miles then core.</p> Mon, 30 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Sat, Jul 28, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-28-2018.html <p>10 more miles with core afterwards. Then I spent the afternoon ripping tile floor out of my kitchen. My back is a bit sore from that.&nbsp;</p> <p>I hope we have a bit cooler weather next week&nbsp;</p> Sat, 28 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 27, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-27-2018.html <p>100 degrees again, 28% humidity</p> <p>I used the same strategy as yesterday to get my 10 miles in, then core.</p> Fri, 27 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 26, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-26-2018.html <p>100 degrees at 5:30 this moring! It&#39;s lame when it doesn&#39;t even get below triple digits overnight.&nbsp; Anyways, I took Martin&#39;s sugestion and ran 3 different loops all ending back at my house and jumped in the pool for a minute before heading back out.&nbsp; The water was bathtub warm, but being completely wet felt good as I headed back out each time.</p> <p>10 miles, then core.</p> Thu, 26 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 25, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-25-2018.html <p>I didn&#39;t get up until 6:30 this morning and it was already 100 degrees outside so I wimped out and did a 10 mile TM run nice and easy at 8:00 pace.&nbsp; Then core.</p> Wed, 25 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 24, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-24-2018.html <p>98 degrees this morning at 5:30.&nbsp; Hottest day of the year so far. It wasn&#39;t too bad until the sun came up over the mountain and started beating down on my after about mile 4.</p> <p>10 miles nice and slow, then core.</p> Tue, 24 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Mon, Jul 23, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-23-2018.html <p>I was gone again the last few days. This time in San Diego. Now I&rsquo;m home for a while so I can catch up on everyone&rsquo; Blogs. The last month my running has been sporadic at best with all the traveling I&rsquo;ve done. Now to get serious and kick it in gear again.&nbsp;</p> <p>10 this morning. There was a nasty 3 car accident that had the highway shut down this morning and diverted all the traffic on my normally quiet road through SARA Park so on the way back I just ran on the highway and had the whole road to myself.&nbsp;</p> <p>Then core. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 23 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 19, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-19-2018.html <p>10 slow then core.&nbsp;</p> Thu, 19 Jul 2018 06:00:00 Wed, Jul 18, 2018 http://Rhett.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-18-2018.html <p>I&rsquo;ve been gone on a family vacation the last 6 days. It was really fun but busy so I didn&rsquo;t get in even 1 run. It&rsquo;s weird how taking 6 days off makes me feel like I am completely out of shape.&nbsp;</p> <p>Got back at it today with a slow 10 miles then some core.&nbsp;</p> Wed, 18 Jul 2018 06:00:00
