I went to visit another site about 8 miles from my house.  It was up near Usery and Las Sendas, so kind of a hilly area.  I got 1.25 miles in hiking and running.  I wanted more than 1.25 miles, so I kept my running clothes on.  Did I stink?  Yeah.  I was supposed to get a call from my daughter to let me know if they had student council today.  She never called, so I went to pick her up at the regular time.  They did.  We live 4 miles from the school, so I didn't want to drive all the way home and wait for half an hour and drive back.  So I ran laps around the school.  Each lap was just over a mile.  After the third one they were out.  My daughter was worried because I wasn't there when she got out.  And she said she was waiting a LONNNG time.  Whatever.  I'm not that slow.

I waited until a little after 11:30am to go out.  I didn't have anything to eat or drink all day.  I took it nice and easy which was good because my legs are a little sore.  Beautiful day out.

I think I bit off more than I could chew today. I was dragging after 4 miles, so I stopped and walked a bit.  Then when I started running again, I thought I was going faster, but I was going slower.

I did a cross fit workout today at Road Runner Sports.  I'll tell you one thing.  I suck at burpees.  And push ups.  Need to work on those.  Later.  They had an obstacle course of sorts.  The first thing you did was either pull a heavy tire out until the rope was straight, then you pulled it back by the rope, or you did a burpee on top of a sandbag and you lift the sandbag over your head instead of jumping in the air.  Next there were more sandbags that you bend over on one leg, lift to your waist, and try to keep your balance.  5 times on each leg.  This was the hardest thing for me.  Next, you lifted a regular car tire over your head, did a squat, then pressed the tire over your head, 5 times.  Piece of cake.  The last one was dragging these tires filled with cement around a cone and back.  I got a lot of compliments about how well I could drag these tires, and for good reason.  I was awesome.  That was one loop.  You got a raffle ticket for every loop you did.  I did 5 loops.  My SIL got double raffle tickets because she was carrying around a 40 lb sandbag on her shoulders between each obstacle.  Too bad she didn't win anything in the raffle.  I won two free entries to the Shamrock Run.  Unfortunately I'll be out of town that weekend for Emily's baptism.  She turns 8 in less than a week.
