It wasn't the run I was hoping for at all. Lately I've been in a funk, I am feeling restless and eager for something new. I'm not sure what I need to do but hopefully my friend Becca and I are going to go to Aspen soon for a change of scenery. As frustrated as I am about the run I will try again, maybe tomorrow or Monday, 7 miles is in my future and it's not a distant one!

So I finally got out for a run again after being sick for a week. I was looking forward to a long run and possibly hitting the 7 mile mark. I headed out and felt a little short of breath. I was doing well until I decided to run up to the village instead of along the river. It's 3 miles up to the village with about a 700 ft gain in elevation. I'm not sure why I thought it would be a good idea, it was a disaster. I could barely run and ended up stopping and walking alot. I turned around very early and headed home the long way. I ran for an hour and only covered 4 miles, it's frustrating for me because I had been doing 5.5 miles in a hour. I'm not sure if it's being sick or what but my legs felt like lead.
