Mid-afternoon run

The temperature was about 85 at mid-afternoon, relatively cool.  So, I went out to the park and ran 4 miles on the trails.  After a shower, I went to Iron Works for a workout.

Texas 10 Series Huntsville

I ran the Texas 10 Series 10 miler in Huntsville this morning.  An earlier forecast predicted rain.  No rain, but it was very humid.  I did not expect a good time with the hilly course and I was not disappointed.  I finished in 2:23:01, my slowest of 21 Texas 10 Series races.  I was 4th of 4 in the 70 and over age group.

Later run

I went out to the park about an hour later than usual this evening.  It was in the 80's and relatively cool.  I ran 3 miles on the park roads and felt much more comfortable.  Two races coming up this weekend, 5K on Saturday and 10 miles on Sunday (maybe both in the rain).

Same 3

There was a little rain at the park this afternoon, so the temperature was down into the 80's.  Instead of trails, I ran the same 3-mile course on the park roads that I ran yesterday.

Still hot

It was in the 90's this afternoon, with a heat index of 105.  I went out to the park early with the intention of running 5 miles on the park roads.  I cut it to 3 miles.  Sure hope it cools off before the long races for the season start this weekend.

Woodforest Charity 10K and Buffalo Bayou Brewery Run

I ran the Woodforest Charity 10K in Conroe this morning.  The course was relatively flat and through various neighborhoods in Conroe.  I finished in 1:21:08 and won first in the 70 and over age group.  This was 21 seconds faster than my 10K time in New Braunfels last week.  It was hot and humid and I had to take on a lot of water during and after the race.  It was well-organized and I got to visit with a lot of good friends.  Then, I drove on down to Houston to run the 11:20 a.m.,Buffalo Bayou Brewery Run with my, niece Amie, who lives in Houston.  I stayed with her and we finished the 3.6-mile course in 52:30.  By then, it was really hot and humid.  We cooled off with a brew and then had lunch together.  This was my 900th race.

Mid-afternoon trail run

I went out the park at 3 this afternoon and ran 4 miles on the trails.  Nice run until I tripped on a root and took a hard fall in the dirt in the last mile when I was good and sweaty.  I skinned up my left knee in the normal place.  I should just put on band aid on that spot before I run trails.
