am--6.75 Hilly run in north desert. It's fun to do some dirt running w/ silly hills and daring folks. We had some folks pushing themselves today. I always love that. RHR--52.

am--5 Grass loops w/ barefoot striders. Kids' races were fun today. I love seeing people get after it. Oh, and Alli P. came, hopefully, not for the last time. RHR--52. 

pm--1.75 Weights/Heat Acclimation/Erg. The heat really wasn't too bad. (I've been diligent about hydrating this summer.) Erged 2k in 8:34. It's a bit pedestrian, but I started easy.

am--10.25 A big improvised loop through Green Springs and Washington w/ 5x 1-min. pickups. The run felt pretty good. I'm not sure if it's the duration of exposure to the sun or the compounding effects of the heat that make runs like this a little tougher. We had a bigger pack today because most everybody is back. After, my heel junk has been pretty tight. I'm trying to be vigilant and not seeing much improvement, but I'll wake up in the morning, and it will feel runnable. Repeat struggles and suffering. RHR--54.

I also finished another book--Peak Performance by Brad Stulberg and Steve Magness. I enjoyed the book and found that it is a good synthesis of other books I have read over the last year or so--Start With Why, Give and Take, Running Within, The Talent Code, Ego is the Enemy, and Mindset. This is a book for anyone interested in performance, athletic or otherwise. The authors have made it a user-friendly tool for frequent reference. And it was a quick read.
