stupidly met rachelle and her running group--josse, michelle l., melody, cam, and Kristen thorne at mouth of provo canyon.  rachelle's last text to me was she was running slow.  well she didn't plan on the elite showing up ready for sw.   yay.  just did my sw yesterday. and Saturday for that matter.  michelle drove us up south fork to the top and we ran down--easy.  luckily michelle claimed she was out of shape and was doing 14k easy with 4k at half marathon pace.  after first mile warm up the others were gone on various workouts except Kristen who was with them then stopped and eventually ran with us the rest of the way from mile 3 on.  ap 7:20.  pretty much even splits there.  lower back was very tight and front of thighs felt a lack of neural drive.  did not feel normal at all.  stopped at bottom of south fork while michelle used br and we drank.  we stopped briefly at campground for water and I did again with josse and cam at mile 9 for 15 secs each.  going real easy tomorrow.

up 7.5 down 7.5 starting at mouth of af canyon with mel and kim.  of course being out of shape only had me with them when they stopped to get water or pee  : D.  they rocked it.  AP up 8:12.   AP down 7:00   (about as my new garmin doesn't read splits after run is done.  it may once I put it on the computer.   total average 7:35.   some issues with garmin reading mileage/satellite.    injection yesterday at 230 appt.  they squeezed me in as I was able to be sent home early.  so nice.   helped back to foot tons when numb medication was working.  takes 3-5 days to take affect and 10 days to peak.  noticeable difference in hamstring back pain and plantar region.  however when I went to run downhill the pain was there forcing me to run differently.  : (((((  so not sure how I will fair over the next weeks of training when really I shouldn't be running at all.  iced in river 9 minutes then went to brooke's scrimmage (amber played in it as well).  won 3-0.  luckily we had shade to sit under.  I didn't shower yet so I was a little chilled from the icing.  as I write this I am super tired but we are going to the movies-- double header with the kids--crudes and epic.  Courtney is only going to one as she is going tonight to see Iron man 2 with her cousin.

see dream last night. deep sleep for hours i did sleep. felt ready for day at 530am.  waited to take courtney to soccer. on drive saw kim running up 1100 north by my house on way back i found her at the top of 1100 at new parking lot just turning in to gett water. she invited me with her. i slowed her. i didnt habe a watch and jad to go right into 720 to 740 pace. not easy on the,old lady who warms up at a 9:00. bu for dieting reasons and not enough kcals and the sun/humidity my heart rate soared and i had to stop at finish of timp half at lone peak. we then decided to get a water at harts across street as my heart rate was over 200. at rest it is 42!   last dr appt a week ago. so 200 felt like a heqrt attack.  i was dizzy and light headed. after i put ice in my chest/bra i was btr and was able to run 7:54 then 7:28, and 7:20 last mile. downhill finish. rest was rolling flat.    we did a portion of timp half so kim new what to expect.  7:36 ap for me.  now that i m feeling btr in general....i can see clearly....my pelvis is way out.  my left femur protrudes and right indents....hips are soooooo tilted. i feel like i have to bend my left leg to walk overly so that is.....my right reaching far to the ground. if i get this pelvis,in place i think i will be raring to go.  foot feeling btr by a margin but trouble pelvis accentuates it. my back isnt hurting since the steroid is working more and more.
