    Thanks @katharmonic and @amymoreorless ! I felt better after I got out for a run, so maybe part of it was also the few days off I'd had and my body slipped back into slug mode.

    I take methylated vitamin B12 daily. I'm out of spatone iron water (will order some asap. A rat ate it). I'll have bloodwork done in October through work. November with PCP.

    None of my blood work numbers, thus far haven't been of any concern with the exception of my D3 levels that my hip surgeon wanted me to improve, from 35ng/ml to ~45 (above 20 is acceptable).

    @Elise4270 I definitely think it’s the heat. I keep reminding myself how wonderful it’s going to be to run in chilly weather again and how much faster I’ll be with all this extra blood pumping through my system!

    Yes! I thought about that today! When its damn cold I'll be setting those pr'sand pb's!

    Haha! Oh me and wheat are not the best of friends. I'm probably just intolerant enough to be slightly inconvenienced hence I continue to eat it once in a while.

    AF also decided to show up. Yay! 😑 Ben and Jerry's was lookin' pretty good today with the low energy.
    But I ran into my retired dentist whose a marathoner (Boston and New York every year) and dang that inspired me to embrace the suck of training. 🤗

    ((((Hugs)))) @RunsOnEspresso . You're a good pet parent. It so hard to lose them.

    I've lost a few over the years. They still visit my dreams and I know they are giving me the opportunity to let me love them just a little bit more. I'm sure she's happy you loved her.

    @RunsOnEspresso I’m so sorry for your loss. We lost our almost 12 year old in May. Animals are such wonderful creatures, and it sounds like she was lucky to have you as her human.

    @katharmonic it was a very humid day, so I don't know if the fog made things genuinely even more steamy or if it just looked that way. Whatever, it was really cool to run through and went down very well with the parkrun tourists. You'll have to get out to Jamaica Pond when you're here and run a parkrun. We love having visitors.

    Thanks @BruinsGal_91, I will seriously consider it, depending how can I schedule around my long run (or incorporate it). Oh, and I'll also be back to Boston in November so maybe at least one of those will work!
