Another 4 miles

Except for the heat, my run was uneventful. The shade temperature was 80 (F) when I left home and 89 (F) when I returned. Most of my run was in the open sun, and the effective temperature in terms of heat transfer was probably over 100 (F). I didn't have any water with me, and I felt the sun. I took a lot of brief walking breaks. On the positive side, my wakeup heart rate was 51. It has been in the mid 50s for the past few weeks.

Allen,
Great to see your still moving forward. I haven't been here in a long time. Check my new post on about.com concerning "Ice-Baths".... Got sny information on that. Simply Pros and Cons. What's your opinion? I've only tried it once or twice, and it worked wonders for me. Keep Running, God bless you and your family is my prayer. Take Care.
.......Hey! I jusr ran my first Half-Marathon since June of 2005. Just getting over the ole lower-back-pain again. 2:14.54 = 10:18 pace. With a woman friend of mine Beth Morgan. My best friend and training partner for years Nick Whited won the race around 1:22.35.
