10 miles / 8:18 avg. campus loops from home. well i don't know what the problem was yesterday but things felt good today. my splits were progressing effortlessly until i developed a sharp pain in my upper/inner right thigh/groin area. this happened once a couple of weeks ago and like the first time it worked itself out after a couple of miles - but it slowed me down some.

10 miles easy  from work - east rainbow loop. late run today. really low on energy lately and have no idea why. physically it's tough but the worst is the mental aspect of it. this morning i gave up on running for good. not really but i'm playing that kind of game in my head. ridiculous. finally got out around 1:30 with a break in the rain. so i had great conditions with just light rain and breezes and perfect temps in the upper 30's.

10 miles / 8:35 avg. from work - rio grande north. 3 miles easy, 5 miles @ mp (target  8:00 per mile - ran 7:58 avg), 2 miles easy to finish. the tempo felt harder than it should have - but i was tired from the beginning so it made for good marathon training.

3 miles - easy st. out and back. last mile@7:47. a few days ago i decided to bail on the striders 30k this morning. i've got a list of excuses but basically i just wimped out. i'm in a mental swamp lately and decided to not stress about making the long drive, dealing with the weather (which turned out pretty ideal this morning, of course), lack of sleep etc. and just set my sights on the ogden marathon in three weeks. i'm hoping to get a last long run in early this week, then "taper". i don't have much to taper from but it is what it is. just grateful to be healthy and running.

streak is over. 117 days. for weeks i've been mentally battling myself over this and i guess i let it get away from me. i actually suited up today very late this afternoon and got about a quarter mile in before i realized i just couldn't continue. but it's not just mental. something feels very off physically - today my feet felt heavy and cold and my hamstrings felt uncharacteristically tight. anyway. life goes on. i run for enjoyment, and i wasn't enjoying the daily drama of trying to get that run in just for the sake of the streak. for some reason it wasn't a problem in 2012, but this year i can't hack it. of course at the moment i feel like ogden marathon is out, but i'll let that ride a few days and see how i feel after a few more runs.
