This was probably not quite 4, but I know yesterday was more than 2 and I feel comfortable rounding slightly up. I walked a bit in little spots of shade. I don't run well in the heat and sun.

This is the first week in a while that I've run 6 days. I would attribute it to actually blogging. I am afraid that if I fall off of blogging I will not be on my normal workouts. There is something satisfying about the workout calendar on this blog that I didn't find when I was using the Beach Body app at the arm twisting of an acquaintance.

Wait a minute. You don't run well in the heat and sun. Uh oh.

Haha. But February?

It's early February this year. You might get lucky.
