I feel horrible.  Hot, heavy, leaden, slow, tired, stressed.  I have been working too much lately and ran but scant miles in June.  July doesn't look much better. It is difficult to remember how fit I felt in May, and now I am slow and heavy.  This am run was 4.2 with visit to sister in law restroom at 2 miles.  avg 8:38 and in pain.

A bit better run.  But still unusually painful.  I think I am still jetlagged and not heat adjusted. avg 8:24.  Come to think of it.  I haven't felt good since I turned 40.  Maybe I am just in the transition stage to a new and better decade.
