11.2 mile run this morning. This turned out to be one that I will not soon forget. When I left the house the skies looked stormy but nothing was really happening so I went over into GS and then over to the Millcreek trail that we ran down the other night on the club run and then across the powerline and down around Middleton to the house. It was basically a very light drizzle up to about the top of the Millcreek trail. Then for about the 3 or so miles down the powerline it turned into a heavy rain and I was now soaked. This was all still just another day out on the trail but when I hit the trail that starts back to Middleton things just got "Buck Wild". The wild really picked up and so did a snow/ hail mixture that was coming in the direction of my eyeballs. I had shorts on and my legs just suffered a fierce beating and for the next two miles I just tried to stay alive basically running in a white out. When I got home I was just as soaked as if I'd just jumped in a pool and all the skin on my body that was exposed to the elements was bright red and starting to swell. Anyways I lived but it really sucked and that 11 miles or so felt like 20. I may do a short run this afternoon on the TREADMILL because I'm not going back outside today- Thank You very much.  

4 easy miles while rocking out in the garage on the treadmill. Ironically I was listening to Bob Dylen's "shelter from the storm".

13.5 mile run this morning. I didn't know where I was going to go this morning when I left the house and ended up drifting over into GS and then up the trail that put me at the base of the Icehouse trail... Next thing I knew I was climbing it and on top of the mesa until I decided that I had enough uphill and then I went of the trail to my left and did some cross country stuff until I ended up coming out in the canyon behind the turkey farm. Then I just went over to the road and came back home. Interesting that the 13.5 miles took 2:02:30!!! I've done 20 mile runs that took less time. These trail runs don't trash you like out on the road but it sure takes a lot more time to get the mileage in. I did find a cool trailer hitch/ ball thing laying on the side of the dirt road and I'm going to drive up there now to see if it's still there. Finders Keepers!

11.3 miles this morning with Nate. We did the loop around GS, Poweline, and industrial. Then I did a short little extension around Escalera and back home. It looked like it was going to be cool but once we were out running I was pretty sweaty. The hamstring kind of bugged today so we'll have to monitor it a little the next couple days. 

6 miles tonight over to the church and back. I went the long way over and did YM and YW (Broom Hockey) and then ran back the same way with Taylor. I had to twist his arm to get him to do it but in the end he did good and was glad.

7.2 miles this morning. I felt like poo. The hamstring was tight and everything else kind of jumped on the bandwagon. 


8.15 mile run tonight with the club. The regular parkway loop. My hamstring has been buggin overtime but I put some Wintercrest on and was able to handle it. I did however have to hit the gas station .5 miles before we were finished for a potty break. That BLT I had for lunch at Great Harvest was rockin out.

I ended up not running today. The hamstring was still tight and I didn't want to push it and end up where I was 2 months ago. So goose egg I guess.

Kind of a bummer. The hammy is still tight and I'm not taking any chances. I'll start up again on Monday and try to keep my runs a little shorter in length but continue with the  daily doubles. We had an our annual meeting with Stone Cliff so I couldn't go out then even if I wanted to.
