    Reem the running machine said,

    Ran out of patience but not energy. Need to find a running partner to keep me focused.
    Went home after tempo runs (miss running in the country and its open space).
    I owe Wednesday the last 3 miles at GP plus a 15 minute cool down (but ran the 2 miles at GP and the 3×2 miles nearly consistently at tempo pace).
    Bought powder Gatorade, lime flavor.
    Ran at 5:45 a.m.
