A lot of walking over the weekend (50k steps!) in Atlanta but no real workout. Finally made it to the hotel mill for a short run that felt OK.

Realfit w 4 x 2:00 accelerations. Started at 8.1 mph and ended the last one at 8.6 mph. Felt a little better than expected after abs/light lifting.

After work with S, a nice late afternoon for running. Felt way too difficult though. Make way for Jabba the Hut on the move!

On mill, progressive to 8.0 mph. Felt a little spacey but otherwise OK. Leg was starting to get sketchy when I hit 3.5 so it was easy to stop though.

Ran 15 minute warmup then 8 x 1:00 hard, 1:00 easy. Decided to stick with 7:08 pace for the faster minutes, and it felt hard but quite under control. Good workout.

Golf! Played my first 9 holes at Kebo. Many steps, but none at a running pace.

wl x 2 + a quick 2-mile run. Still loopy from jet lag so again glad to get to the gym at all. Encouraging on the scale though: Since March 5 down 3 pounds and .8% body fat and up 1% muscle.
