TTL: 3550 yards

after doing a long ride Sat instead of Sun, I didn't feel quite as run down this morning. I think the recovery-type ride yesterday really helped. plus the swim last night.

today's swim was a typical Paul Monday-recovery-type thing. I'm certainly not complaining though, it felt good to mostly stretch out, do some drills...and pick up a little bit of distance for my FLOG.

I really was going to head to the gym. but when I left work it was so nice outside (75F or so) that I decided I'd just go home and run outside...
it was dusk by the time I made it out, but still nice:

Short run w/Holly (the dog) 2.25 mi 00:20 08:40 pace

Just a little after-work run with Holly. She wasn't too happy when we crossed Pecos, but got a second wind when we turned around to head home

I had to stop 2-3 times between Pecos and the canal bridge that is about 1/2 mile north of there, where we crossed and headed back. Holly definitely wasn't happy, but I knew if I could coax her into going she'd be happy to get home, and I was correct. not only that, but there was a cat near our matter how tired she is, when there's a cat, duck, or whatever, her instincts kick in.
