Can't believe how sore I am as a result of the race on Saturday. I feel about as bad as I did after St. George a couple weeks ago. Quads, calves, ankles, back, and stomach all feel horrible. Going down stairs is not very fun and the worst is right when I wake up in the morning.

I really feel like I could have run the race in around 1:20 to 1:21ish on a normal day (I know it's easy to say this after the fact), and I think that is why I was so frustrated with how things went.

PM 1 hour on the elliptical while reading Us Weekly (It makes the time go by a lot faster so don't laugh too much).

Elliptical for 45 minutes.  Still extremely sore.

5.03 at overall pace of 8:40.  It seems that most people from the 1/2 last Saturday are back running, so I figured that I could go back to running.  After about 1 minute I could tell my quads were still no good.  Just tried to take it easy, but my legs are still very sore and I probably shouldn't have run.  Maybe running easy today will help me to recover a bit faster.

5.0 slow miles on the TM.  Legs feel better than the last few days, but certainly not normal.  It's no fun to run when it hurts.

5.83 in 45:53 around the neighborhood.  Legs felt a lot better today, but not all the way back.  After two miles I would press the pace for 1 minute and then back off for 3 minutes.  Continued to do this for the rest of the run.

12.25 in around 1:35:57 up and down Provo Canyon.  Took it easy going up, and tried to push things coming back down a little bit.  Around mile 9 my quads and legs really started feeling the 1/2 from last Saturday.  Hopefully next week I'll be able to get back to feeling normal.  Not too cold today, but not warm enough either.  

Lifted for around 40 minutes.
