No run today, packing up and getting ready to go home from Island Park.

Played soccer for half a game later that night.  My daughters soccer team had a fun scrimmage game and I ended up playing in that for a half.  It was fun but I was wearing the wrong shoes, Dr. Martin sandals because I didn't plan on playing.

Back to the grind this morning after vacation.  No run yesterday, just didn't feel like running.  This mornings run was tough, it was hot outside and I was really dragging today.  This was one of my tougher runs to get through in a long time.  Got through it though but I'm tired now.

Woke up not feeling really well this morning, had a head ache and a little bit of a stiff neck.  Talked myself into a run anyway, glad I went.  Still kind of dragging from yesterday and my quads are a little stiff from the soccer game on Monday.  The run this morning helped the quads loosen up.

Better run this morning, still dragging a little.  I don't really know why except maybe the heat is bothering me.  Felt better today, quads slowly getting better and my heel stays about the same.  Slightly sore until it warms up and then okay then later in the day it gets a little sore again.

First off I want to thank my main man Nick, Oreo on the blog, for giving me some motivation to try some speed work today.  I've never really tried speed work before, I just run to stay healthy so I don't really worry about how fast I'm going.  I ran 4X800 today and I'm glad I did.  It was a really good tough workout but it was also different and I enjoyed it.  First I ran up to Bonneville high school, 1.3 miles ran the 4x800m with 400m recovery inbetween  then ran back home.

Great workout I'll have to try and keep it in weekly.
