I'm feeling a bit better.  Not 100% but well enough to run.  I hit up the trails for 12 miles and the first 2 were brutal.  It was 92 degrees and its been a few weeks since I've ran such steep hills so my lungs and legs were burning something fierce.

I was up and off for work by 6 so no time for a run this morning.  Instead, 13 miles in Eugene along the river trail.  Hot again this afternoon.  As always, a ton of people out and about in this town with 20-30 floating the river.  Looked like fun.

AM: 9 miles around Eugene.  I slept like junk last night and felt horrible this morning.  Just so tired...

PM: 11 miles with 2 of them barefoot.  I ran near South Eugene HS and the Amazon trail that's nearby.  Then I jumped over to the track and ran 9 laps, doing the second mile in 5:46.  Very hot out.  I stopped to wet my head 3 seperate times.

AM: 8 miles in Eugene.  I actually slept great last night, other than the weird dreams!  But I feel rested and that's all that matters.

AM: 10.5 miles this morning.  Yet another early morning.  The last two weeks have been brutal for sleep.  As a result, I'm dragging all day long.  Anyway, I ran past the hospital and up 6th St past Club Northwest on Vine St.  Basically uphill the first 5.25 and downhill on the return.  I ran out in 37:18 and back in 32:43.  I felt good and just rolled with it.

Noon: I finished work in time to grab 6 quick miles before catching a flight to SLC.

Back in Utah today. I flew into Salt Lake last night to meet back up with my family. We stayed in Bountiful and I ran along the bench near the temple. There were some nice rollers and one really big one. I managed to run 6:53/average pace and felt good throughout. Now a long drive home with a stop in Reno so we can eat In N Out.
