1. I have had steady and acute pain in my lower right abdomen (in the area where my arteries were severed) since last Thursday, so taking it as I felt was more necessary than I wanted to admit and
2. Did I mention it was hot out?
I ran with Michael B. again today and we just kept a steady rhythm up and down, although I have to drop the dime and say that after eight hills, he had to vamoose to another engagement so it was just me and my near-empty water bottle to finish out the last two repeats and then make the loop up and around the PPD building to complete seven miles. Which I did, although by the time I got back to the boardwalk, I was bushwhacked, even with the wind picking up behind me. It was a well-earned seven miles. And Brenda E., bless her speediness, waited for me to finish (a small group of us went at 6:00pm, the larger WRRC group went at 6:30pm).
