track workout at brighton high with devra and tee. 2 x 2 miles. 

this was a poor decision.

it was raining. and sometimes hailing.

the track was covered in water. 

i had to wring out my shorts before we even started the workout.

i stayed with devra and tee for the first 200 meters, and then spent 7.5 laps running on my own. i was probably crying, but i don't remember.

i was losing 3-4 seconds per lap, and devra and tee were quickly pulling away.

i finished in 12:36, a solid 200+ meters behind.

at this point i realized (no, i had already realized) that i was being really stupid and i was probably going to hurt myself, so i decided to only run one more hard mile. i jogged around while devra and tee ran their first mile, and then jumped in and found myself fading back again. i finished that mile in 6:03. 

march was a low and slow month of training for me, and a lot of that was on purpose. i did not think that my fitness would deteriorate so dramatically.  

mostly i'm just mad it was raining because it ruined my fancy monday hair.

yesterday's workout didn't help me at all, and i was marathon sore today. so i took the day off, which isn't helping my fitness or my confidence. i'm panicking about slc half, but a day off to fix my issues is probably better than an injury, which i feel is coming if i'm not careful.

i did some cross training - walked around, arm weights, dead bugs, one-legged bridging, made soup, push ups, went to the mailbox, etc.

i am just lingering, lingering, lingering in a post-marathon funk. it's been six weeks now...

11 miles with devra. riverton square loop. pace was slower than normal, which was good. my legs were still pretty tight for the first few miles, but they loosened up throughout the run.

i'm feeling better today, mentally and physically. what's life without melodrama?

6 with james. donut loop. 

pm - 4 miles. i helped rob and carina mark a 5k course for the traverse mountain elementary 5k. the entire school participated -- 899 students. what a task! it was mind-boggling to see that many kids charging down the sidewalks, but it was so cute and so entertaining. they were all pushing themselves so hard and it was pretty amazing to see what they were capable of -- some of these kids were tiny! the best moment was when one little girl crossed the line and then turned around and waved her friend in that was about 100 meters back. as soon as her friend reached the line, the girl gave her a dandelion and a hug. cutest thing ever.

10 miles around liberty park, including a 5k in 19:45. 

i wanted to see how everything felt today before making a decision about slc half next weekend. i was expressing my concerns to james via a dramatic reading of my blog, and he said that if my concerns are actually about injury and not just about running poorly, then i shouldn't run. otherwise i should throw myself into the fire and stop caring so much about the result. 

so i'm going to run.
