Melanie left me at 11.5 miles si she came in at 2:39:45.    It was great to have her. Her music helped.  12:28 avg. since longer.  12:33if go by it being an exact half.   Btw didn't sleep.  Finally nodded off about 1145 pm. Awake 230. 330.  Up 345.  Stretched. Sit bones ached a lot the last few miles.  Burning. And feet too.  Just achy.  Loved course.  Just think slow is hard

Only sore sides of hips.  Yay.  So got out my altras. I got them a year ago or more.  Barely used.  I was so achy in my joints during half. And decided it was my Saucony endorphin speed.  Felt like they were  turning my pelvis inward adding to my sit down bone pain and wow this run was so much more enjouythen the others.  Did 6 min jog at first 5.3. Then. Always 5.7 or above to 6 mph.  Briefly at 6.1-6.3 -6.7 at end.  With 1 min walk at 4 mph. 1 percent incline for both.   I got sore last two reps.   Ran until 5 miles.  So 54:37 for 5.   Cool down walk til 56 min.

Met Melanie 645 am Provo canyon. Drove us up south fork to top.  Walked first mile.  Jogged 9 miles.  10 avg maybe slightly less. But a mile stone for me since I always had ri stop.  Adductors tight /sore from yesterday so sore bones didn't yell until mile 6. More like a whisper at first. But always resolved with a brief stop to stretch. We stopped 7 times  about a minute or less except bathroom. And a couple  others maybe 2 min. Total time for ten 1:50:20.  11 average. Our walk mile was 20 min.

Three falls lower lot. 923 am.  30 second stop at turn around.  65:11.  So 13:03 avg pace.  Not bad.  Throat burnrd first little bit since immediate climb.  22:13 to top.   33:41 (11:27 mile ) then 12:21 back to top amd 19:11 to finish.    Sit bones ached. Feet too.  Need new trail shoes. My altras I have been running in are so cushion.  So trail shoes felt like the ground. PT Punky right aftrt.  Currently soaking it in tub. 
talked with Vonney about her sons ocd.  So that was a good hopeful call in helping Amber.  She is so stick daily in a thought that she has to process entirely and can't move forward.
