Back from the Youth conference, had no power upon return... storms up here have been brutal and hot weather (which I am sure everyone has had).

Wrapped up one crazy week with record temps - 5 days over 100 and ran in a few of those - power outages - youth rally - work nonsense and well... a bit of running. I hope to avoid any more set backs as I am going to bring my mileage up slowly. It has been nearly a year since I first felt the pain in my quad.

71/78%, a bit sticky, just a base run. I'm tired, but I'm not really.. tired.

75/88% sticky sticky run, ringing the shirt out at finish. Decent run, just lacking motivation at this point. Part of it is I have not set a date for my next race, and mostly since every time I start to ramp up I end up in pain. Anyway, just enjoying running for what it is... running :)

Crazy busy with work and church, good though. Motivation level for running is not there. I am going to use these weeks and run soft. I feel like the wind was taken out of my sails too many times so now there is nothing there. I am leaving town this weekend and hope to re-focus when I get back.
