I worked all of my hospitals then drove to Jackson Wyoming. When I got to Jackson I went straight to the hospital to work. We worked for a few hours got back to the hotel about 920 then I had to go run. My legs were super tired and heavy today. Still not recovered from the massage so I hope I get my legs back soon as this is scaring me. Hardest 7 miles in a really long time.

Ran 12 miles in Jackson Wyoming. I started from our hotel the Hampton inn and ran to the cache creek trailhead. When I got there I was suppose to meet my boss but he already left so I ran up the cache creek sidewalk trail , then the hagen trail to the putt putt trail and then back to the car. One of the most beautiful trails I have ever ran on in my entire life loved it. Great view of the mountains which had snow on them, perfect 70 degree weather. I finally felt normal running today. My legs have started to come back to life after my massage which was last friday.

The goal for today was to run 2 x 2 mile push at race pace.

I ran a 2 mile warm up. 2 mile push at race pace 5:35. 1 mile break then another 2 mile push at 5:35 race pace. 2 mile cool down. The First push was hard then the second one got a little easier.

Half mile warm-up for the big race

I was excited for the race. I was a little nervous going into the race my legs have felt tired and heavy. I was wanting to go top three but we will see.

5:30, 5:27, 5:25, 5:25, 5:32, 5:34, 5:34, 5:53, 6:00, 5:40, 5:32, 5:42, 5:38

5:35, 5:32, 6:00, 6:20, 5:49, 5:34, 5:50, 5:51, 5:46, 5:53, 6:04, 5:55, 5:47

Averaged 5:50 min pace

I ran almost the whole race with Mike and Ben. I started to fade badly the last 7 miles or so. We ran into some headwind the last 10 miles or so. It was rough I felt like I was working so hard and not moving anywhere.

I was not happy with this race at all. It made me very depressed. I have lost motivation and do not want to run marathons anymore. I need to make a change or something.

I ran the 5k up at scout camp. I went 17:50 I was happy that my stomach felt ok as it has been bothering me. I know I can go much faster but it was high elevation so I was breathing harder.
