pm--6 Anasazi to the homestead and back. It was warmer today, but the breeze kept the temps from being a detriment. I actually felt good for once.

pm--6 Anasazi Trail. Not a bad day. My body wants slower, especially at the beginning of a run, so I'm giving it what it wants. 
 

I also finished The Uneasy Chair. It's Wallace Steiner's bio of Bernard DeVoto. Interesting, well-written book.

pm--6.5 Anasazi Trail to the top w/ Cholla extension on the way back. I haven't run on that portion of the trail for years. I might be adding it once in a while. 
 

I also finished the Ultimate Gift by Jim Stovall. As a department, we made a list from the current novel sets we have and decided to read any off the list that we haven't previously read. This was that for me. A good book for what it is.

pm--4 Easy miles you start the week. I'm not sure where we are in this pandemic, but the silver linings keep appearing.

I finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. It was a quick and quirky read. The narrator must be on the spectrum. The chapters are all prime numbers, and he calms himself by going through cubed numbers. His family life is heartbreaking.

pm--5 A run up near the Canyons and back. TIL that the one of the songwriters in Squeeze wrote the band's lyrics and the other wrote the music and melodies. Interesting team work.

pm--6.5 Anasazi Trail, past the homestead and back. Nice run. The temperature was warmer but still pleasant. I had a bike family leapfrogging me for a while, but once we hit the incline, it was over.

pm--6 Chuckwalla to the point w/ the Paradise Rim extension. The route is seldom traveled, so I ended up 2nd on the segment leaderboard even dragging myself through the heat, my quads screaming because of my one-punch-man workouts the last few days.

am--7.5 Anasazi Trail from trailhead to trailhead. It was a good run, even though I think 10:00 am might be the worst time of day for me to run. A lady stopped me on the trail and said she had seen some rattlers mating near the part of the trail I had just traversed. She showed me a picture. Not sure if Decker would count this in his snake totals or not. I didn't see or hear anything. 
 

I also finished Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke. Lots of quotable quotes.
