I decided to go to the Pre this week. Was anyone there? I tried to get the word out that I'd be gone this time. Most of the Friday regulars were at the Pre.

Next week Friday is pre-SOOR. I will nevertheless be at track practice.

That's the number. Since it was warm, we ran short intervals, on long recovery. Come join us next week.

While some Lizards were chasing the elusive Gozzard (which autocorrect really does want to convert into a giblet--I had to override it...forcefully) others were at Duniway.

We had five

Ann
Janne
Rachel
M.G.

...

And me.

Loops were run, finishing just as the shade covered the track. Next week, we will have more shade, sooner. In a month or two, we are going to want the sun back! Meanwhile, we are starting to think cross-country.

A note for those of you reading this. Next Friday will be Amanda's last track workout with the Lizards before moving to San Diego. It's also First Friday. I don't know if she's free for First Friday, but let's give her a good farewell from Duniway.

Today's workout was 10 x 300, with the route and recover chosen to maximize shade. Five were there. Lizards who run regularly on Tuesday and Friday evenings are a notoriously heat-tolerant species by the time we get to August. It also helped that a growing sea breeze was improving the air quality, almost as we watched.

Next week will have more shade. That's the only thing I can promise. Also, after what we've been going through 91 with clear air will feel like heaven. Though I have no faith in long-term weather forecasts. Today was 4 degrees cooler than predicted. That's a fairly significant difference.

Next week I hope to be traveling for eclipse watching. Josie says she'll be there, so she's in charge.

We had one tonight. Two, I guess, if you count me. Josie was the other. There was a sighting of another Lizard, but he was just passing by.

Friday track will also be on next week, for those not doing the race on Saturday.
