Wierd day. I had hoped to get in a morning run on my last day of school but was really busy finalizing grades for the term so I didn't get around to running until about 2 PM. Did 6.5 miles in the gully - pretty hot, around 80 and windy.

Then I did 5.5 miles on the treadmill at 4 PM while Abby was swimming. Did 4 x 1/4 mile in 75 seconds as well. Wanted to run fast on tired legs. Speaking of that, I'm feeling pretty sluggish this week.

The hardest run I have had in a while was that City Creek run we did. Man, my legs were tired. Good luck Saturday! I have my first date in a year and a half. Could be weird..
