morning - 7 ND. Nice run with Twix up into the desert. Could feel the sickness and lack of running, but it was nice to be out running. Abs. (Peg green 236.25)

noon - 12 Highland. Twix and I went up to the Highland Trail. On the way out, we came across a dog off leash. I though it was with someone one, but it was lost and kept running from us. Almost home, Py was headed out, so I joined her. We first checked out the dead horse someone dumped at the Dirt Mile - it is gross and starting to stink; why would anyone dump a dead horse there?  I told her about the lost dog, and she wanted to go look for it. We found it and tried to catch it to help it get home. But it ran away, under the tunnels and into the North Desert. We hunted for it for a long time, but no luck. Hopefully it finds some help and doesn’t die out there. Multiple ab sessions today. (Peg oly 452.5)

AM - 4 Twix.  Back to the grind.  Waking up to an alarm today was not pleasant.  I am thankful, however, that today is a teacher work day.  Run was a little better than the last two.  Abs after.  (Boston 270.25)

AM - abs and a 20 min walk with the dogs. It was tough to wake up this morning, and I opted to sleep a little longer and walk. 

afternoon - 9.5 Track/mall. Back to school today and then practice. Did our inaugural Death Run. It was fun, but tough. Being sick again made me a bit more tired than usual, and we went out harder than I thought we would. All part of the experience. I went from almost being out on the first lap to taking 4th 25 mins of pretty solid tempo effort later. Then we finished our time running out by the mall. The Essence was there and it was great running and talking with him. (Peg blue 577.75)

AM - walk and abs.  Another good walk with the dogs.  Left hammy has decided to flair up.  I guess the quicker pace yesterday did it.  

afternoon - 5.5 DIx2.  Just warmed and cooled with the team.  Hammy isn't really feeling good.  (Peg black33 485.5)

afternoon - Went on a hike with my girls (minus Pyper who was at honor band) and dogs.  We went up in the desert to Elephant Arch.  I have never been there before (at least all the way up to the arch).  It was very pretty and we had a lot of fun.  The girls loved playing in the sand dunes of the wash; it reminded me of doing the same thing as a kid.  Hammy isn't feeling any better which is why I decided against running today.
