10 on the levy. Overheating is becoming a problem because I dread just about every run. I was up at 6am today, but that's not cutting it. I think I'll have to go to a 5am run on weekends/holidays.

New shoes! 6 miles easy after work. I was worried about the protests carrying over into early morning, and so opted to play it safe and run in the evening. It was overcast, and despite being about 90 F, I felt pretty good. Maybe I'm starting to adapt?

8 easy w/ 6x40s levee sprints. I made this a 5:30 am and the extra hour before sunrise made a world of difference. I'll mourn the sleep but love sweating a little less.

PM - 4 easy in my Electros that I haven't used in months. I used to like these shoes, but this time they felt absolutely awful. Flat and rigid.
