Did another 1.2 miles

I ran and walked the 1.2 mile route again with no dizziness during the run. I was tired, though, and did a lot of walking. Part of my trouble was that I went out in the late afternoon, and I do better if I run and walk during the morning. Also, I might have been tired since I didn't run or walk on Saturday, and my body may have retrogressed a bit.

Ran/walked 1.2 miles again

My wife and I went south from 100th South on the Jordan River Parkway, and I felt no dizziness at all. Judy was tired and went slower than she normally does. I felt pretty good during my run. The temperature was in the mid 40s (F), and the sky was a mixture of clouds and sun. We had rain and snow last night, but the path was relatively dry.

Increased my run a bit

I ran and walked about 1.2 miles, but I was dizzy during the latter part of the run. I had breakfast and drank water the same as I've done during the past runs. The dizziness is mostly when I first get up from a rest break. Once I'm up, I do OK. I didn't get dizzy during most of the run, and the dizzziness only lasted two or three seconds. When I felt the dizziness coming on, I took bigger breathes to give my body more oxygen. I think the dizziness is a combination of getting old and running out of energy. I increased my run a bit, so I had more chance of running out of energy. It's not much fun to get old, but life is like that -- we accept life as it is and make the best of it

And, another 1.1 miles

I went out about noon-time and did 1.1 miles again. I completed the run without getting dizzy. There was a gusting south wind with 10-20 mph gusts. The wind helped keep me cool. The sky was sunny and hot, in the low 80s (F), during my run. I didn't carry water, but I drank a cup of water before I left and had good drinks at the beginning and end of my run.

I ran today instead of tomorrow, because my wife has a "tea party" planned for our grand daughters and her nieces. They are to bring their American dolls. My wife, Judy, has been sewing doll clothes all week. The following picture shows Judy and her dolls and their new outfits. The picture was taken by one of her grand nieces.
