10.5  miles on my mountain bike on a very fall-like round trip up the trail by Lone Peak and down by Deerfield Elementary with my husband.  I enjoyed myself  but my poor husband had to put up with a bike that could only do a few gears.  I tried to get him to switch with me but he is after all a guy  : D.     A gentleman.  Not going let me rip my calves more trying to pump a bike up lots of hills without the ability to lower the gears.  Today is so beautiful.  Ended my workout with some core and arms.  I am still struggling with push ups.  My husband breezes thru them.  Maybe I will get some strength in me after my IV therapy on Wednesday.  Our AP for today was 5:45.  So nice and easy.  So very lovely.

3 @ 9:29 Pace.  My calves prevented me from going any faster.  They have never hurt this bad.  I keep massaging them.  If I sit for a while then get up they feel "normal" then they start to pull and feel extremely tight and sore after standing or walking around.  The muscles are tender to touch.  Not as painful as yesterday but not "runnable" and probably should have stopped after a few steps today.  I worked all day and that was tough as I walked a ton.  When I got to sit it was so nice for my lower calves.   The two inch heels on my clogs for an 1 1/2 hours after the race Trick or Treating in the POURING rain then another 2 hours in my husbands oversized boots shuffling as I walked after the rain stopped  probably over did it for them.  I didn't stop moving after the race not even for a second.

First mile 9:03, last mile 7:25.  Calves still not well.  So short today.  Then IV iron therapy.  I am a nurse and I still don't like the thought of needles and infusions.  Hopefully super powers soon  :D.    Just learned after my run on my way to visiting teaching that a 17 year member of our ward after telling his parents he didn't feel well went to bed last night and never woke up.  He died.  I saw my Bishop out visiting  at the end of my run.  He was with his wife.  I was curious what he was doing.  I should have known it was something very important to be  10am and my bishop is a busy Dr.   A half hour later I found out from my neighbor.  Too sad.  Never a good time to go but UNexpected and YOUNG is too much.  My brother died in a car accident 25 years ago TODAY (he was 19) so this really feels sad for what the family is going through and will go through.  Time goes by so slowly when someone you love dies.

Plan to run 10 miles.  Ran with Troy for first three very easy. First mile 9:30.  Then took off for 7 alone.  Felt in a slump even with the Autumn beauty all around me so just kept it easy until I got the notion to do some brief pick ups.  5 x .25 miles at random points in my run and one .5  pickup in between the .25s.  Seriously felt great to pick it up and it felt easy.  However my darn inner lower calfs are still sore.  So  I may take the day off tomorrow instead of running before work.  I will run Sat. morning before work.  My paces above were 6:30 to 6:40.  My .5 mile was at 6:33.  AP for all 10  = 8:23.  Nice and warm out.  Breathing feeling great.  Hope the iron has something to do with it.  Have three more doses.  Yuck.  I felt like I could taste it going thru my veins yesterday.

5.2 miles at 7:43 AP before work at 5:01am in the darkness, alone.  Took too long to get out of bed so minimal miles this week.  Got in two at 7:02 pace so that was fine.  Was thinking I could convince myself to go for 5 more AFTER work but my cute family waiting for me at the dinner table was too much a deterrent.  So not many miles this week.  At least my calves are calming.
