AM - 2 hour bike ride. i started at liberty park and rode through sugarhouse. i then wound my way up through the neighborhoods in millcreek until i reached wasatch blvd. i stopped at the water wheel park and was happy to see that the drinking fountain was alive and well (i.e. generously giving out cold water again). continuing on, i followed the wasatch bike route to foothill, then rode along wasatch drive and down to the zoo (des news in reverse). from there, i coasted down sunnyside and looped back home. it was a very nice ride and the weather was great -- 90 degrees and 14% humidity -- exactly what i look for in a utah summer. 

PM - weights, core and another short bike ride.

AM - 3 miles around liberty park. continuous run. my leg felt quite sore on monday evening, so i decided to rest from running yesterday and just bike (it seems to really help my leg). everything felt good again this morning, but i am still not quite there -- i would say i feel about 85% right now. i am thinking i will be able to get up to 4 miles by the weekend. 4 miles!

85 minute bike ride -- city creek canyon. i wasn't expecting it to be open to cyclists this morning, but fortunately the forest ranger and the giant stop sign hadn't made it in to work yet. riding uphill is still very hard for me but it does seem to be getting easier...

after that i went to the doctor for what will hopefully be my final follow-up appointment. i returned my rental crutches (yay...) and looked at yet another x-ray of my leg. he saw more bone callus than before, which had formed on top of the original and was spread over a larger area. he said that this was a great sign and cleared me to run with just a compression sleeve -- no more air cast. this is good because the cast was getting all gross and dingy with mud and wood chip dust.

this morning james and i ventured north to the aptly named city of north salt lake. nan is currently in town and told me about the NSL 5k, which she was planning on running with her family. i was very interested in running this race for two reasons: 1) to see nan, of course! and 2) to "officially" get back into the running scene after my month-long hiatus.

the last time i ran a 5k was on memorial day, and it ended horribly (i.e. i couldn't walk). that race was also the last time that i ran on pavement, so i knew i needed to be very careful today. i found nan at the start line -- she was running with her daughter breanne (who, by the way is very fast; 5 years old and a natural runner!). i knew i wanted to stick with them and try and keep up with breanne as much as possible. i was inspired by her determination and athletic prowess, and i knew i would be lucky if i could stay with her through the first mile.

it turns out that nan and i were able to hang on until about half way through the race, but then she dropped us both and flew through the second half at 6:00 pace. nan and i picked up the pace to try and catch her, but it was futile; she was long gone. i am not quite sure what pace we were running once we picked it up (my internal garmin needs to be re-calibrated), but i know that it was the fastest i have gone since i started running again (faster than a jog). my leg felt good and it held up just fine, although my breathing felt somewhat labored. but that is fine by me -- the fitness will come back someday.  i was just glad to be out there running again. nan was kind and hung with me to the end and it was great to run with her for a few minutes and catch up. thanks for the great suggestion, nan!

*the city of north salt lake has incredibly immaculate park bathrooms.
