The first 1/10 of mile 3 was walked in 1:38 so the pace was maintained throughout the run except for that segment.

6:00PM Felt really good today out on the run. Actually I didn't feel good until after a mile, but then I felt really good! The first mile I felt okay. Not bad, just okay. Had to poop, but thankfully it didn't set in until about 2.8 miles. My foot doesn't hurt too bad and didn't hurt too bad today either, so maybe some time off my feet did it some good. Plus all the icing. I'm icing as I type this actually.

6AM Not really sure how far or how long I ran. I know it was in the 40-minute ballpark. It was my first run from our new house and it was dark, cold, and miserable. I was planning on doing 12 miles but I was so miserable [probably due to 2 straight days of working on the house+2 straight nights of minimal sleep]. I had to poop so bad that I stopped at a fence post, dropped my shorts and let a yam fall out. It seriously looked like a yam! And it felt sooooooooo much better afterward! I was reduced to hunched walking and after relieving myself I was back in top form. Came back to the house and got Brynn and did another 11-12 min of running, then called it quits. My left foot has been hurting really bad so I've been icing it a lot. I have a strong feeling it's plantar fasciitis. I've decided that after the marathon I'm done for probably at least a month, if not more. Running, that is. And probably limited biking for the time being. I need to get back into swimming anyway, so it will work out.

6:30AM: 8 miler with Cam today. He ran about a minute backward and I think it thwarted his dreams to become the world's fastest backward marathoner. I felt fatigued the whole time [okay maybe there was a mile in there that I felt pretty good on] which I've been feeling this week. I'm wondering if it's sleep-related, nutritional, or because I did my longest run AND ride two days apart from one another. Guess it really is marathon taper time!

5:30AM Weird run today. It was super dark for the whole run, so I couldn't see the mile marker pucks in the concrete. That disallowed me to keep track of pace and take mile splits. I started having to poop at about 2 miles in but thought I could push through it. Got to 3.2 mi and had to head in. I almost destroyed the toilet at home, it was pretty amazing. Add to that the fact that I was maybe 12 feet from a skunk who subsequently let off a stinkeroo [don't think I got any of it but once I was down wind I could sure smell it!] and the day was pretty much shot.
