Felling better this week, legs aren't tired and I'm not exausted.  Good run this morning had to cut it a mile short because I had some intestinal issues and my son had to be to drivers ed early.  No watch today just got out and ran, great morning.  A little warm but I'll take it over winter.

Short day again, still going easy on my heel.  It's feeling better, doesn't really hurt when I run but gets a little sore late in the day.  Nice morning again although a little warm.  I got .8 in today and ran a fartlek for .2 and then tried to push it a little today.  Overall pace was about 15-20 seconds faster per mile than HMP pace so good run today.

Heel was sore today so I decided to ride my bike.   Great morning for a ride, ended up going for 1 hour today.  Started going up Washington Terrace, then down into South Weber over into Riverdale, back up to the top of Washington Terrace and then down and home.  Good ride felt it in my legs.  No pain in the heel which was great.

Some times it's tough being a morning runner expecially on vacation when I'd like to sleep in.  But....woke up at my normal time at around 6 am, nobody else was up so I went for a run.  I was a little nervous because they've seen a Grizzly bear hanging around in the area around my parents cabin.  Took some pepper spray with me but didn't need it.  Great run it's really beautiful up in Island park although it's 2000 ft. higher in elevation than home.
