My Mom donated half of her Liver to me when I was 6 months old. I have now taken care of it for 21 years. I hope to do so for years to come.

Started with a 2mile warmup on the track. Then had a 2mile time-trial with the team. My time was about 12:27. I suffered from dehydration and collapsed at the finish and wasn't able to stop my watch so i forgot my time. Talking to the other guys that's what I figure my time was. We then went for a 2mile cool down around the lower loop. I started drinking a lot more water the rest of the day.

I had to walk home from work about 1.5miles in the heat, my muscles were tight for some reason. Maybe more post run cool down stretches?.... so I went for a 2mile run around lower loop sweat probably all the extra water I drank.

Lesson learned for today: 1Drink more water. 2Don't run when its 102degrees outside. 3Get a good nights sleep. 4Wake up earlier to get the energy from breakfast ready to use about time for practice, 20minutes isn't enough.

This is tough weather to get adjusted to... and the first harder workout is always a bear as well.

All the points you made are good ones - follow those things you outlined, and you'll adapt and have a great summer of training.
