Four miles in 34:46 this morning. Not feeling good. Plunked down some $ on some supposed miraculous shoe inserts yesterday. They were less than miraculous.

I have to admit I'm wallowing in a bit of self pity now and I no longer read most of the blogs here - especially those of successful runners who are able to train hard. They just make me feel like a loser. 

We went up to Park City for the day after church. Went to the park, out to lunch, walked up and down Main St. eating ice cream, and ran up and down the steps to City Hall. Ann and I wondered whether a retired teacher could afford a one bedroom condo in Park City?  

Went for a walk around Sugarhouse which was recently named "one of the ten best neighborhoods in America" by some organization that is an authority on such things. Beautiful afternoon, nice walk.

I did something bad to my right knee running in the gully on Wednesday and I can't run. This might be a good thing since I know it's not too severe (it feels better today than it did yesterday) but it's forcing me to take some time off which might help my PF as well.

Just focusing on my team and their training and various psychosis. They are a high maintenance group this year.

No running today. Instead I spent all day in class at East High School with a bunch of other AP history teachers learning new methods to stimulate the intellects of today's youth.

Saw a bunch of people out running this morning. Must have been a race in Salt Lake? Why am I even still posting on this blog? I should find a "random musings" blog.

Now to enjoy my one day weekend.
