The Wildbull was so nice and met me at 4:30 this morning so I could get a long run in before flying out to Dallas to stay with my sister. I owe him big time! THanks Bill! Felt very fatigue for the first  9 mi, granted 5 mi of it was up Snow Canyon. I struggled bad today, although looking at my pace up the canyon it wasnt really that slow for me, but it sure felt like it. Then at the top and coming down the marathon course I got a HORRIBLE pain/cramp/side stitch and i could bearly move. It took so much focus and concentration to just finish. (and I HAD to be back by a certain time, so that didnt help the situation.) IT hurt so bad at times it would literally take my breath away and I would feel like I was going to throw up. I have never ever had a side stitch/cramp hurt that bad. I have never been happier to finish a run. Glad its done but now I feel not so hot.... Ran into mike warren the last four and ran with him too, good to see him. avg pace 8:00...HOLY MOLY just looked and the time and I am going to be late for work!!!!!

Got into Dallas and to my sisters very late last night. Didnt get to bed til well after midnight and I knew I had to get up early and get out running because the LOW here is 78-79 degrees and humid. Was worried that i would be way to tired to get up and get going and i didnt want to have to run on the treadmill. I didnt sleep very well and woke up before 7am here, got ready and headed out. HOT, HUMID and WINDY! Wanted to just run 5 out and 5 back, but the road i went out  on hit a freeway intersection about mile 2.5, so I started turning and running out and then would head back to the same road i started on. Its always fun to run in new areas! Legs were DEAD today!!!! (combination of long run yesterday and little sleep). I will have to go a little eaIrlier tomorrow to try to beat the heat. I think I lost a gallon of sweat! Good preparation for WBR for when I am running in the heat of the day! avg pace 8:04

My sisters neighbor told me a route that I could run that I could hook onto a trail that ran along the road and i could go out 5 and come back 5. So last night we clocked it up to the walmart and it was 4.4 so I knew I needed to just run a little further down the trail. So glad we clocked it because I must not have  turned my garmin off yesterday and so it was dead this morning. I took my cell phone so I would have a clock and then when I got to walmart I ran for approx 8-9min so I would get another mile and then turned around. I will run it tomorrow and make adjustments to my mi's if its off any. So MUGGY and a headwind the whole way back, ugghhhh! Its nice not to have stress about time though and having to get back to get to work. Legs were still pretty dead today, went to bed super late again and woke up with a sore throat on monday and its still pretty sore today.Been dosing up on the emergen "c" all week!!!

So my run yesterday ended up being a tiny bit longer than I thought. I always like when ends up being longer than shorter. And I can I just say how bad I HATE the weather here!! If i had to run in humidity everyday I think I might just quit. I had ambitions of trying to do a 3 mi tempo run today because there are some flat areas but it was so muggy and hot this morning there was no way. I felt so suffocated!! My shorts/shirt were soaking wet after my run. But I do have a nice little tan going:) Even going a little earlier does not help. Right now I am so thankful for the blog and the whole different mindset I have as far as running goes because a year ago I would have really cut my run short or just went to the gym with my sis and got on the elipitical. And today I was thankful for the wind when it would come up because it would at least give me some fresh air and cool me off at times.

ANother muggy run but by far the least warm and muggy since I have been here. Passesd about 50 runners on the trail. I guess there is a store here called Lukes Locker and they set up runs on sat mornings and you can go certain distances depending on how far you need to go for your training. They had jugs of water and powerade set up for the group. Next time I come here to visit I will have hook up with them on sat. It looked like they had every level of runner. Sore throat is still present, went to bed a lot earlier last night then the past 5 and tomorrow i can sleep in.
