8 miles on tap today. Long day yesterday - tummy revolted twice before getting on the plane early early yesterday but behaved the 12 hours to get home. Usually sleep on these flights - couldn't sleep on the first kept waking up. 2 hours from SLC to OKC I had a row to myself so I laid down to sleep and was restless. Couldn't sleep. :( Grabbed a quick bite after the airport - didn't stay in. Went to dinner with friends - soup/salad - ate the small side salad. Not hungry for the soup - brought it home. Rested an hour before dinner. In bed at 11 - dogs woke me at 1am and then Bo kicked me at 3am. Slept on the couch until 6.

Walking - body not happy yet.

This week continues to get worse and worse. Body now doesn't want to keep any food in it. I am not sleeping. 2 hours each of the past two nights. And a lovely rash/blisters... Nice.

4.5 mile run attempt tonight. No promises.

Wednesday - September 4

Will try to do something tonight. Didn't get a run in last night. Laid down and fell asleep when I got back to the hotel. Awake at 8pm until 4am and then sleep until 7am. :(

Tuesday - September 3

4.5 mile run tonight. Will see how it goes. Was "kicked in the teeth this morning" and just over all feeling beat up. Guess AK isn't any better this time around.

Monday - September 2

Run
  • 1h 15m
  • 7.00 miles
  • 10m 42s /Mi

Spitting rain from the beginning. Mid 50s for temps. Long sleeve shirt over short sleeve shirt and my skirt. Took off long sleeve top at 3.25 and got chomps and gatorade. Stopped again for more at 5.25 and then finished it up. Struggled the entire time after 3 but longest run in about 2 weeks since last week was a low mileage week. Probably pay for it with another run on the schedule tomorrow but will see how it goes.

Spent most of the weekend "unplugged" - needed it - late to bed, late to get up but just what the doctor ordered I think. One more week in AK and I head home on the red eye on Friday night/Saturday morning. Haven't done anything here that I couldn't have done from home.
