easy pace 38 frigid degrees, shorts.  yup.  but long sleeved shirt and gloves.  frost everywhere.  at mile five hamstring spoke up again.  before that didn't notice it.  so i had to forego my 10 min at steady state and 3x2 min at half marathon pace that my friends told me they were doing.  I ran home very slowly at that point and was at 6.5 miles.  Avg pace 8:50 for the run.  then I got on the mile with two ties around my lower and middle hamstring.  And did my 10 min on the TM at 7-7:30 pace, using the hand rails at times to let up on some weight.  Dang nab it!! this is not going to be good at mile five in sg!!  blah blah blah.  drama.

Nice drive down with Jane, Kim, Jenny, Angie, Julie E and Summer.    I was quietly pondering whether I could pull off the entire run.  So I was full of self doubt physically with the left hamstring and burning pelvic pain.  I scraped my left hamstring with the real deal tool onThursday hoping to waken it out of pain.  It was pretty bruised up with petechiae.  Bed by 1030 pm.  I awoke at 405am.  We picked up Melanie and Julie E at 435am and 440am.  Got on 5 am bus.  Race started late by 15 minutes.  Didn't bother me. Stood between 3:25 and 3:35 pacer.  In first mile I knew it was going to be tough.  Hamstring was very sore and at mile four I naturally picked it up and my hamstring zapped me into submission.  I thought for sure I would have to stop and get a ride back.  But i just ran at a cadence that my hamstring stayed calm and as I climbed veyo it calmed especially going slow.  My pelvis started to act up as soon as I began the descent at mile 15 so I just kept an even effort.  My hamstring could only handle a 7:40 pace or slower. Felt hopeful at mile 22 that  I could finish this.  I put ice in my shorts that some people were handing out hoping it would calm my pelvis/lower back but instead it felt like icing in the AF river--- firey ice pain then numbness.  So I retrieved all the pieces and tossed them aside.  I was on a roll at that point and that played a little with my mind but  only cost me 30 seconds.  As soon as my bum was no longer numb I picked it up again.  Never felt taxed aerobically. Felt easy.  So not very sore at all.  Just hamstring and left IT band. And my burning pelvis.  Weather was PERFECT.  So beautiful!!  Never hot.  The volunteers were incredible.  Thanked every aide stations for being here. They are so NICE!!   Here are splits:

worked all day yesterday of first day of juice cleanse from company called JUS by Julie.  How fitting.  First drink Sweet Spin.  Good start.  second spicy lemonade, third worst tasting -- greens with ginger cinnamon and nutmeg and apples, forth chia berry, yummy--pomegranate and strawberry and chia seeds, fifth-- choco nana, PB JUS (peanut butter, natural), or matcha chia, different one each day.  Favorite is first two of these three).  Sixth and final drink xtreme greens.  I can't believe I made it.  They allow for up to 3 egg whites per dinner and two cups of leafy greens if needed.  I did that two nights.  Last night I sucked it up as I was at the finish line.  Lots of water in between.  Lost 5.5 pounds.  I am sure all water.  But after mile 8 in  the half I could not think anymore -- splits - 7:03 (too fast but had to use bathroom wanted to get ahead so I could find one then hop back with Amber my pacing companion), 7:19, 7:47 (long potty stop), 7:07 (catching back up to Amber), 7:44 (slowing it down, pace band says 8:01 mile), 7:25, 7:39, 7:36...stop and could not talk anymore so I stopped even though we were still on pace and doing just fine I was just getting a negative mind set without the carbs.  We were at a 7:25 avg when I stopped.  LoL   then I was so irriated with myself running with kim an easy 7:35 mile (I had stopped 20 seconds and along came kim banditing the race starting 3 min behind me).  Same with mile 10.  Mile 11 I gave up completely and sat on the ground for five minutes with my shoes off and took off my leg compressions.    I had an out of body mind experience.  Like a severe brain fog.  I had taken the juice before the race  one I quite like with kale, spinach, mangoes, pineapple and banana and rice milk.  One stinger organic gu (not on juice cleanse but ingredients are).  I am so lame.  I just could not get my head to pull out.  I guess I did.  I got up and joined the 1:50 pacer.  So I came in at 1:49:15.  Doing the juice cleanse the rest of the day was interesting.  Spicy lemonade I had packed on ice in my car.  Drank that.  And 1/4 of a banana at finish line.  Figured I needed some substances.  No salt on this diet so its pretty intense.  Veggies have barely any natural salt.    Went to BYU football game and reaped the rewards of all the SMELLS OF the foods there-- onions on a footlong hot dog, cinnamon almonds, kettle corn and more.  I was not hungry.  Almost just satified with the smells.  The drinks were fine enough to fill me.  Last night was the hardest.   Hard time falling asleep.  Headache.  Total calories a day 1000.  Wowza.  Made it to the finish line of the cleanse.

easy run no watch but started the timer on my watch and looked at it on my counter when back.  It was a mentally tough run for me at 330pm .  Depression tough.  After juice cleanse then eating some non cleansing food I bottomed out.  9:12 avg.  A trot.

9.850.009.85

9.85 miles 553 am by myself on the Cemetery to Cemetery run.  Thought I would run into my friends that started at AF cemetery.  I started at my house in PG and ran towards AF cemetery the long way via 1100 north (going west).  Ran to Cemetery and through it.  Had my music on so wasn't at all scared.  Had to slow in places due to bright headlights and cracks in sidewalks but basically took it easy the whole way listening to my good sounds. Think it was 553am when I left and got back at 7:19 am.  Just course tooled my run at 9.85 miles.  Good wake me up for the Halloween day run.  Was fine by myself.  A needed loner run.  Ran from AF cemetery to canyon road in PG then to PG cemetery by the junior high.  Ran through there and back to home.  Avg pace about 8:40-44.
