Met up with my friend Frank for a run, who lives just a few miles away. We hadn't really decided on a route until just before we headed out. I wanted to avoid the more open trails as the heat wave we're experiencing has really made the deer flies incredibly awful to deal with.
So, we decided on a rough route that was a mix of roads and trails, roughly half of each. The roads would give us some relief from those little yellow and black winged bastards. We took it really easy today, keeping the pace slow and I picked Frank's brain on some nutritional stuff, which he's an expert on. Good company and a good run!
Oh yeah, my heart rate monitor has flipped out again the past few runs. Opened up the battery cover and saw the new battery I just put in last week had been leaking or was somehow otherwise corroded. Will clean out the inside of it and put in a new battery and see what happens.
Ran 8.8 miles @ 9:53/mile pace.
Trails and paved roads.
Upper 70s, very humid.
Asics Trail Attacks, shorts, short sleeved shirt, cap.
