It was nice and overcast.  I thought I was feeling better, so I tried to run faster.  But it was still incredibly slow.  Sigh.

It was about 8:30am when I got out.  It was 88º, so not as warm as it has been.  But it was sweaty out.  I wasn't sweaty.  IT was.

I went to bed early last night so that I could get up early and run.  The problem was, I woke up at 3:30am.  Knowing that was too early, I tried to go back to sleep.  I tried everything!  But I couldn't.  I went running at 6:30am.  Later I had a Ragnar clinic to go to at REI.  So it ended up being a long day.

I finally got out the door at 10:00am.  It was 96º in the shade.  So I did something I usually don't do.  I carried a bottle of water with me.  I was feeling pretty stiff and sore, and I was wheezing.  But once I got on the Floodway trail, I tried picking up the pace.  I was like, "Holy crud.  Is this as fast as I can run now?"  It's pretty sad.  Anyway, I stopped after a mile and took a drink.  After that I felt more loose and was able to pick up the pace even more, although it was still incredibly slow.

I've been crazy busy at work.  I've been meaning to get out and run, but it never happened.  I finally bit the bullet this morning and got out the door at 6am.  It was nice running in the shade for most of the way.  I saw one bunny.
