Not a good night last night.  First I couldn't get to sleep, then I got woke up by a work problem and after that I couldn't get back to sleep.  So 5 hours is a little generous.  Got out a little late so it was pretty warm so I just went 4 miles today.  It was around 80 degrees with a strong wind from the south, so that made it feel warmer.  I had a hard time cooling off today, I need to get adjusted to the heat.

What a great morning for a run, temps dropped about 15-20 degrees from yesterday and it was awesome.  It felt really good this morning.  Just a nice run this morning, no watch.  Today's 7 felt much easier than yesterday's 4, that's weird but I'll take it.

A little cooler again this moring so I decided to do another longer run today.  Hopefully my heel does okay.  Great morning again for a run, felt better than Monday's run again.  Just a nice easy run today, no watch.

Legs were tired this morning, good thing it was a short day for me.  Heel was alright after the last 2 longer days.  A little warmer today but not too bad.  I got passed by a young girl(probably about 15 years old) this morning with about 1.25 to go so I decided to see if I could keep up.  I was able to keep up for the rest of my run pace was between 7:45 and 8:00 per mile.

1.3 mile warmup ran to Bonneville high school then I did 4x800m with 400m recovery and 1.3 mile cooldown back home.  The 4x800m were in the range of 4:00 - 4:15, not very fast but fast for me.  Good tough workout, legs felt tired on the run home. 

Intresting morning 2 older gentlemen showed up at the track this morning, I thought it was just to walk around but they were there to practice throwing Javelin.  Never would have thought that.
