Travelling for work this week. I am in Jasper, Indiana. No TM at the hotel, but there is a cool running path about a half mile away. I saw 5 deer less than 5 feet from me and they just kept munching grass... I figured I was plotting along so loud they would scatter, but not at all.

Ran the trail again, its pretty nice. Lots of runners out today. Had a side stitch on the left side for a mile and then it moved to the right for mile 2. Finally went away and the running resumed to normal.

Funny how when its jan 30 feels warm and near the end of march 30 feels cold. I missed two days of running, 500+ miles of driving had a bunch to do with it as did 2 hours of sleep one night. Hope it does not throw me off.

This has to be my worst run of the year. I simply could not get my legs under me if that makes any sense. I had no strength, legs were sore, no speed, nada. I really had to just trudge. I have felt this way for recovery runs, but that can be expected, I did not expect this for a Saturday run. I can't help but wonder if all the driving (mad my legs stiff) or perhaps the sleep/diet had an effect.

I had one of my youth to council this afternoon so I had to cut a few miles off the run, but that does not bother me, it is a good thing.
