16 myles - around 2 hours

Daniels park out/back - 9:30 a.m.
clear, mid 60s, dry
mind/body - a little hesitant
easy effort

Once again I didn't take a watch because I just wanted to enjoy myself. Although I knew from the outset that I wasn't going to run very well and it wasn't going to be enjoyable. Legs just didn't want to move today and the Achilles was a little sore. I've been through enough days like this to know I'll bounce back even stronger next week.

The lack of energy today could be due to the fact that I have scaled my diet back down to 2000 calories/day and eliminated most saturated fats for the past week. I kind-of got outta hand with eating in Florida being that Hurricane Fay kept us indoors most days. I'm sure my body is trying to figure out what the heck I'm doing but should be back to normal in a few days.

One week until Wasatch! I'm looking forward to getting back to Utah and pacing my good ol friend Aric Manning. Carolyn Boman if you're reading this, please bring me a bushel of peaches from Perry and I will pay you when I see you.
