I wasn't sure if I was going to run this morning or not, but I couldn't go back to sleep after I woke up at 5:30 so I got dressed and headed out. My legs didn't feel sore but once I got going I noticed they were a little sore and had little energy, so the race took a little more out of them than I originally thought... I ran my Payson route via canal road, and extended up the hill, I took a small break and then headed for home. I had about a mile or so left and I started to have stomach issues and lets just say it wasn't pretty, I had to take some walking breaks in there just to get home, I barley made it!!!;-) I decided to do a little bit more on the elliptical so I went another 20 minutes on that just to help loosen up the legs and hopefully they will recover a little faster. My average pace for the run was very easy at 9:00 total time was 45:07 with my heart rate at 137, like I said nice and easy.

See ya tomorrow.

Way to go on getting this morn Bro. You and your stomach issues are happening way to often. Is there some kind of shot for that ? Or should I just get you a runner's supply of depends ?
