AM/noon - 30 minutes. I felt miserable, it's too (explicative) hot here. I'm not a fan of Alabama. But I guess I just gotta start running in the mornings. Had ice tea and this peachy oatmeal thing after which made me feel quite a bit better.

AM - 50 minutes. Slept in to be well rested for my calc test, so it was once again very hot out by the time I set out. I made sure to do the most hilly run I could in the time I had. I did a faster k in the middle in 3:24. Legs weren't really wanting to do quick stuff, but I sped up throughout it.

PM - busy with classes. S/O to all my blogger buddies of which I have too many to list at the moment. Special S/O to PV for winning state, and Zack and Ryan for running great races!

AM/Noon - 60 minutes easy before lunch. Very hot today, but I toughed it out. Again I ran to the fields and went barefoot until I had about 7 minutes left. Excited to build my mileage back up again. I hate to admit it but I think I was in better shape in August.

PM - 20 minutes easy before dinner.

AM - 15 minutes. Suprisingly didn't feel any sickness from yesterday, but I wasn't out for long.

PM - 45 minutes. Ran to the fields, took off the shoes and shirt, and just ran on the grass, letting my mind wander. It was nice.

Gonna start doing my runs in minutes. 30 this morning. Glad I took yesterday off, my legs felt much better. Not good, but better. That course really beat me up.

Another 30 minutes in the afternoon. I ate a lot of junk food over the weekend, but now I'm ready to put get some quality mileage in these next few weeks.
