Out and back from PG upper rec parking lot (after dropping kam and amber off at soccer practice) at 6:45.   Started running a 7:03 am.  Really tired and right knee has been locking up and hurt but not so much after rubbing surrounding muscles.  Went all the way to Art Dye just 15 seconds before hitting the parking lot so down the entire hill to the turn toward parking lot.  I was talking to AF cross country coach on his bike as a runner was next to him about to pass before the downhill and I said "you are not allowed to pass me on my easy run days"  Ha Ha. So we started talking of our good ol'runnig days.  I accidentally ran too far from where I wanted to turn around.  6.77 miles out.  6:75 miles back.  Pace was under 8:20  avg.  Wore a stop watch and checked my pace each 1/2 mile on markers.   Wiped out now.  HUNGRY.

Hobble creek half.  Watch died at mile 3.  One gu at mile 6.  Time then was 42:28 based off Jessica's splits.  Last three were tough for me mentally and my breathing was erratic.   1:34:30.1.  Third in age category.  Jessica was first in 1:34:02 and Stephanie apparently for PG cross country (another mom) as she came up and introduced herself.  She was second in 1:34:05. Summer was 1:34:04.  Melanie 1:25 and Jane 1:20:31.

Easy miles that my legs and pelvis did not think so.  More like tightness.  The first two up to 1100 north the fun way passing Manila elem I didn’t stop. So that’s a bonus and my second mile was as fast as my first!! Actually faster.  And that was all up hill.  Same route as last Wednesday  but legs more tired.   Celebrex out of system so started again today.  8:36 avg.   not too far off from feeling much better last week at 8:33 avg.
