Finally got out this morning, it was really warm today.  I guess we're going to go from cool to hot this year.

Holy crap I'm tired today.  Got alerted for work at 3AM so had to get up for that and when my alarm went off at 5:30 it was everything I could do to get up.  But glad I got out for a tired, glacially slow run.  Really didn't have a choice since it's national run day.

Dragging my bootie through the run again today.  Hopefully I'll snap out of this soon.  Right now I'm happy when I get out the door because the mornings are really nice.

29 mile...yes 29 not 28.xx bike ride with Janell on Sunday afternoon.  Started from Syracuse and rode through Clearfield, Hooper, West Haven, Roy, Sunset, Clearfield and back to Syracuse.  Good times, great ride, and great company.

Nice run this morning although it was getting a little warm by the end.  I'd rather have it warm than cold though.  Just cruisin, legs are finally showing some signs of life.  Not completely back yet but getting there, that's a big relief.

Nice hike up the Upper Yosemite Falls trail to the base of the upper falls.  That was a pretty good grinder probably 1500' or so of vert.  Didn't go to the top trying to take it easy for tomorrow.

Awesome day....hiked from curry village campground up to Half Dome with Janell.  Went up the Mist trail to Nevada Falls and then up the John Muir trail to half dome.  Really can't describe how awesome this is but it's a must do in your life kinda hike.  On the way back went completely down the John Muir trail instead of taking Mist.  Specataular views and it was great to be in Yosemite.

Warm morning for a grinder type run after the 30 mile road bike fest yesterday.  Legs definatley felt tired for the last 2-2.5.

PM - Easy 2.75 on the Gibbs loop trail between 36th st and 29th st trail heads with Janell and Bailey.  Just beat the downpour...yeah.

Nice run on a great morning.  I got out a little earlier than I have been lately I think that helped because it didn't start to feel warm until about 1-1.5 to go.  A little tired today but not too bad.

Nice run this morning, I was able to keep out of the sun until 3.25 miles in then it caught me up in South Ogden.  Then the sweatfest began.

Not my best run of the week, it was really warm out this morning.  Didn't push anything today just ran in the freakin heat.  Glad I got out though.

Hot outing on the Gibbs exercise loop with Janell and Bailey.  Even though it was hot it was still fun.

A little nervous about this one because I've been so out of sorts running lately.  Good run felt better than I thought although I didn't push this at all.  Ran up the Terrace into South Ogden above the Athetic Club, around by S.O. Jr. High(avoiding Adams Ave construction), down Adams Ave. parkway to the Weber River Parkway into Riverdale, over Riverdale Rd and back up into the Terrace.  Whew!

Went to the MotorVu last night so I got to bed late.  Got up early so I could try and get as much as I could done before the sun came up.  Never felt really good today, tired again, but felt okish.  I made it almost 4 miles before the sun hit me today and it was hot from then on.

What a freakin GRINDER, sweatfest, hot beat down today.  I got up early and was out the door by 6 and it was still warm.  The sun didn't hit me until I got 6 miles in and from then on it was a total beat down.  I need a nap.
