pm—6.25 Full Green Valley loop. I try to keep the gait smooth, but the pace wasn’t there.  No worries. It’s an easy run just building miles again. RHR—54.

pm--6.5 Tready Work. After a 20-min. warm-up, I did some pick-ups--7x 1 min. from light tempo down to tempo, 4x 90 sec. at tempo for :60 and mid-6's for :30, and, finally 4x 30 sec. from mid-6's down to low-6's. Cooled for about a mile. It was nice to get the legs moving. My breathing wasn't forced, and I was able to stay pretty calm and loose at those paces. Nice stuff. RHR--53.

pm--9 Big Looping up by The Canyons and over by my gpa's old corrals--there's a park there now. I've been trying to ease into runs and go by feel throughout the run. Tonight felt nice. On a side note, the fitbit claims that 100% of my run is at peak heart rate. Whatevs. The thing is jacked. RHR--52. 

I finished the 2nd installment of the Foundation series--Foundation and Empire. Isaac Asimov is topnotch sci-fi. These authors have amazing minds, and I get a kick out of sci-fi. It's a win-win. I'll probably dive into the final book in the original series in the next week or so.

pm--6.25 Green Valley Loop. Nice chill in the air. I felt like I got into a nice flow. The pace was a little slower than I thought it was, but I always have a steady rise in pace as the run progresses. That's good. RHR--52. 

Yesterday, I finished another book—Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History by Laurel Thatcher-Ulrich. It was recommended by one of my most masculine friends. The author works wonders with seemingly small stories. This book is framed around three historical women and their questions about a woman’s place in the world. Side note, the author is a Mormon Feminist.
