I didn't actually sleep for 7 hours, but I did lay in bed for that long. I could not go to sleep last night.

This run was an interesting one. The roads were really slick, so there were moments where I was either having to run slow in order to stay on my feet, or else I was churning but not going anywhere. I also slipped and penguin slid once. Other than that the run wasn't too bad. I did have to poop though, partially because of my body not being used to this schedule. The outside of right achilles hurt a little. 6:47 average

Ran all the hills to work on getting the fitness back. They really get the heartrate up there. I had to poop, so I hit the one at the top of the long hill. The outside of my right achilles still bothered me, especially during the second half of my run. 6:47 average

I forgot to set my alarm, so I ended up running in the afternoon. Luckily I had time with it being the first week of school. I met up with Tom and did an easy 5 miles with him. It was refreshing to hae some conversation during a run. I kept going after that and was going to pcik it up, but I felt a poop coming on and started my search for somewhere to go. After quite a bit of running I found a porta-potty in a neighbourhood by Green Canyon. That didn't prove to help the pain I was experiencing too much. I then started running again and after a mile was really hurting again. I made it to a gas station, but that didn't really help. I really suffered through the last mile, and the last half mile I had to keep stopping and could barely maintain 10 minute pace. 7:10 average, my legs didn't give me any problems.

I was a little nervous after yesterdays run, but today was much better. My legs felt pretty good and I was really enjoying my run today. 6:37 average, with no leg problems at all. I did have to stop and use a porta-potty, but it was a normal stop and wasn't bad at all. I also don't feel like the hills are killing me like they were a few days ago either. Saw a handful of runners this morning, which was weird.

I forgot to mention yesterday that at the beginning of the run my left toe connection was bothering me. It was the same this morning, but it goes away after I get going. I was feeling pretty good for a lot of the run. I did stop and poop again, but it wasn't a problem. Right after I hit 7 miles I felt my legs get tired, but slowing down was probably a good thing because I was running harder than I probably should have been anyways. 6:37 average

Initially I just wanted to enjoy the morning, but once I got moving there wasn't stopping me. I mostly focused on working the uphills hard and then having some decent miles on the downhill. I'd forgotten how hard all of those hills are. If anything my legs were just tired today. I took a safety poop in Smithfield just to ensure I didn't have problems. After mile 15 I backed off and ran 6:20s for the rest of the way. 6:25 average
