rambling and swamp-like

This is the first time I've run in six days. Not good training for a September marathon, I know; however, I have gotten a lot of homework done in that time. That IS good since I'm cramming and entire semester into two weeks. (I know, I know. Let the chastising commence!)

Anyhoooo, Carol is in Phoenix (in July - I know! She's nuts; it's 116* down there!) visiting her daughter. Being the machine that she is, she's probably running at 3am. Let's face it. If there is a contest, she'll kick my ass every time even though she is 20 years older than me. (Is it me, or do I have a problem sticking to the point?) So, I was off by myself and I decided to do Sugarhouse Park. The temperature for the run was 77* with 42% humidity. Yes, that's right. I might as well be living in a friggin' swamp. (And, I know that the humidity is 77% in NC this morning and 87% in NJ, but I'm not IN those places, now AM I?) Whatever. It was hot and humid by Utah standards, so I wussed out and only did 5.5 miles. The first two miles were really tough because every muscle in my lower body was stiff from un-use (<--is that a word?). The muscles in my upper body are probably stiff, too, but since I never use them, who's to know? I considered doing the backside of the hills in the park because they are easier, but I decided to suck it up and do them head-on. (Where was I going with this?) Anyway, I'm done, and I'm happy about it. Now, more homework - oh yeah, and real work that pays the bills.

Stats: 5.5 miles in 1:00:07 for a 10:56mpm pace.
