10 AM

Run/walk 34:06 [3] 3.34 mi (10:13 / mi) +72ft 10:01 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

Run/walk along the waterfront (mostly) in St. Joseph, MI. Much cooler than yesterday but running felt harder, presumably because I'm feeling the effects of the race yesterday.

Running race 27:44 [5] 3.07 mi (9:02 / mi) +32ft 8:57 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

St. Joseph (MI) 5K race (Race for the YMCA), mostly along the (Lake Michigan) lakefront. The good news is I was 3rd in my age group; the slight bad news counter to that is there were only 5 people in my group.

In addition to being middle of the pack in my age group, I was also middle of the pack overall; 105th out of 213 finishers.

Started out way too fast as I positioned myself further up in the starting area than I really should have. It was a narrow (bike path width) starting line and a moderately big field, plus there was a 5K and 10K and everyone started together. So I got swept along at a pace that was definitely too fast for me to maintain; I think I was going around 8:20/mile for the first half mile or so. I eventually settled into a more doable, but still challenging for me, pace.

Took a couple of walking breaks, reasonably short.

Run/walk 24:24 [4] 2.51 mi (9:44 / mi) +94ft 9:24 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

St. Joseph, MI, visiting Cheryl's relatives. 83 degrees, 78 (!) degree dewpoint, according to Weather Underground. By far the highest dew point I've run in. Amazingly, it wasn't all that bad, for a couple of reasons I think: the temperature hadn't gotten beastly hot yet; it was overcast; there was some breeze; and I only did 2.5 miles. I've run in MUCH more unpleasantly hot weather, that's for sure.

Planning on doing a 5K here in St. Joseph tomorrow, so I wanted to get out for a short run to get my legs and the rest of me used to running.

9 AM

Run/walk 30:11 [3] 3.01 mi (10:01 / mi) +57ft 9:50 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

HJ trail, with trailsnail. Warm morning, supposed to get much warmer as the day goes on. 4 min run / 1 min walk generally. Two off the clock short stops.

Monday Jul 15 #

9 AM

Run/walk 51:47 [3] 5.05 mi (10:15 / mi)
ahr:157 shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

Canal path run, from Fairport heading east. Very nice morning, mid-70's and low humidity. AP said 82 feet of climb, and so did the FR, but I don't believe it, as I was on the essentially totally flat canal path or a service road along the RR the whole time. So I corrected it to zero. Curiously, the elevation blips came during walking breaks, but not all walking breaks.

Did the usual 4 min run / 1 min walk.
3 PM

Pickleball 1:00:00 [2]

Webster Park. Probably played 4 games. Two left handed, two right handed. Maybe another game thrown in, tough to keep track.
