I think I've discovered the source of my back discomfort.

3 easy miles practicing my poise and posture after last night's plyometrics.  I'm starting to fall in love again with my legs.

Time - 26:09 (avg. pace 8:43)

Splits - 8:47, 8:47, 8:35

I forgot to mention I almost got hit by a car today.  Maybe a poor choice to wear an all gray outfit at dawn on a cloudy day.

I fell asleep last night because I was trying to watch the Suns game while at the same time finish watching the movie Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li.  I thought it would be a better movie than it was, but the storyline was weak.  Kristin Kreuk is the hottest hotty in Hollywood, so at least it had that going for it.  Anyway, I didn't do P90X last night.  This morning I was still sore so I just rode the stationary bike for 15 minutes.  I'll have to get my run in tonight as well as my P90X workout.  I think it's Yoga X.

Today's Emily's third birthday.  I'm glad she's feeling better.  I don't think she has a clue about what a birthday is, but she does like to open presents.  Here's some pictures we took of her a couple of weeks ago when she was helping us cook.


PM Workout

3 easy easy miles.  I wasn't wearing my Garmin.  I just wanted to loosen up because I thought I had to do Yoga X.  It turns out it was Arms and Shoulders/Ab Ripper X.  I'm kind of glad I didn't have to do Yoga.  I feel great now.

South Mountain!  I met up with two other guys from my Ragnar team.  Eddie brought his dog and went at his own pace.  Glen and I pushed it a little.  Okay, a lot. The first 1.25 miles is not bad.  It's on a dirt road up to the trail head.  Then we hit the trails and it becomes a lot steeper.  We followed Mormon Trail until it looped around to National Trail.  We were going to just follow National Trail back to where we came from, but Glen asked if we should go a little farther.  I said, "Let's go another mile."  We ran another 0.85 miles and he asked how much longer.  I told him 0.15 miles.  So we were off again, but Glen kept going.  And going.  And going.  After a while he decided that was far enough, but then I spotted another parking lot that I've heard my friend Ox talk about.  I said let's go to that parking lot since we've come this far already.  That was five miles and a climb of 968 feet.  The view of Phoenix was awesome.  We headed back leapfrogging the mountain bikers.  This time we followed National Trail all the way back.  (You know how I feel about Mormons.)  I did step and bend my ankle more than it wanted to bend once.  It's a bit tender now, but I think it will be fine.  When we got back to the dirt road we started to cruise.  Then we saw Eddie.  I was surprised he was still around.  We slowed down and all ran to our cars together.  Then we talked Ragnar and if we should stay the night in Prescott the night before.  Fun run.
