5 miles on the trails with the girls. 8x100m barefoot strides after. Still trying to kick this sickness.

Big boy run this morning with the guys. Still felt like garbage and the run showed for it. Hope to get feeling better soon. Be patient is what I keep telling myself. How much longer can I take it though?

8 mile trail run with the boys out off Navajo Dr. Did a slight progression run on the way back. Felt controlled but nothing fancy.

Did a fun loop with the boys today out around the new part of Little Valley. Ran by my parent's house. Good pace and perfect weather.

Tabatta workout after wards.

Went and ran our usual loop with Clyde this morning. I think I made a slight turn for the better from this sickness. 10.2 miles total. Felt alright.

5 miles this afternoon with the girls out on the trails towards Hidden Valley.

Slept in most of the week to try and get the extra sleep to shake this sickness. I think it helped a ton. 6.6 miles this afternoon looping around Webb Hill with the boys. Awesome weather today and felt good. 8x100m barefoot strides and then Tabatta after wards.

Ran with the boys this morning at the DC. Slighter cooler temps but it warmed up throughout the run. We went towards the Bloomington Loop and then came back to meet up with the club for a bit. Glad we did this because I needed a potty break. We then ran the right STG Half course. Kept the first 14 miles easy and then picked it up. I felt pretty good the last 4 miles finally. I wasn't too far back from Clyde and Dave. Happy to finally hit some decent miles to finish out the run.

I wish I could do the half next week but with this sickness for the last 3 weeks I don't think it would be pretty. I guess it is a blessing in disguise I will be out of town. Excited to see what everyone does. Clyde and Dave are in great shape right now.

Glad to have another decent week. I just want to get back to some solid workouts. It seems like it has been a while. Just keep enjoying running with the guys and grinding it out and I should be fine.
