Wow, another warm one today. 83 and pretty windy. And it is only going to get hotter this week, too. They are calling for upper 90's by the weekend! I will have to do my weekend running very early to avoid the stifling heat.
Again, I took it pretty easy today, but I ran better than yesterday. The scar on my knee is healing quickly (bacitracin zinc ointment is good stuff!), so my knee is getting more flexible. I ran my typical 4 1/2 miles, and had a pretty decent run. I even got to play "Good Samaritan" and gave a lost and confused young lady directions to get back on the Interstate, so my work is finished today!
Unrelated to anything, I have to put in a plug for my new favorite chips: When I started running, I began to purchase baked tortilla and potato chips exclusively to cut some fat from my diet. I am now making an exception to this rule after trying the new Old Dutch Restaurante Style Guacamole Strips! These are rectangle-shaped tortilla chips coated with guacamole flavoring, and they are awesome with salsa. The chips are of the "full fat" variety, but hey, I figure I'm allowed a few indulgences, right? Anyhow, I am telling everyone about them in hopes that they catch on so Old Dutch will never quit making them. Please, by all means, give them a try! :)
Until next time,
