June 23rd Update

I had to run up in Logan for two runs last week. That was a nice change.

I ran in a 10 mile race on Saturday, and went faster than I ever thought I could - for about the first 7 miles. I learned a valuable lesson about saving my energy.

Sunday I hiked over 10 miles while helping with the search for the missing Boy Scout.

I then ran Mon, Tues, and Wed., and now my right knee is shot. I guess I learned another valuable lesson about adequate rest. I hope to do at least 9 miles Friday morning.

Mid June update

After my 10 mile run on Saturday, I was down 20 pounds since the doctor visit. However, I lost 4 pounds just on the long run. That's a lot of sweat! The run went better. I switched from the camel pack with water to a smaller fanny pack with gatorade. I also used a different gel pak, .

Weight loss

From Wednesday of last week to this Wednesday, I dropped 10 pounds. I attacked the 3 miler yesterday, going faster than ever. For the short runs, I'm feeling a lot stronger.
