first run back after 7 days of hand foot and mouth disease misery.  The blisters have finally dried up enough it is not painful to walk anymore.  6 stroller miles easy with Michael, stopping at mile 5 at the playground for a few minutes so Val could play.

​stroller miles.  Run was cut short because the stroller had a flat and I had to run it to the bike shop for repair.  Going to try and run long in the morning after work

I had great aspirations of getting a long run this morning but with no nap yesterday and up all night at work...it had been 23 hours since I slept, so I came home and went to bed.  Got out in the afternoon before work.  I can tell I'm still tired.  Long run tentatively rescheduled for Monday morning after work.

That was pretty much terrible.  Ran after I got off work.  Was dead-legged from the beginning, then the blisters on my toes from hand foot mouth got raw and raised up again.  Then, at mile 12 my gut cramped with that need to poo....so I wrapped it up at 14.  I'm not 100% back from illness yet I don't think.   Nothing but slow miles for me until my body gives the signal it's ready for more.

Treadmill at the Y.  I only had 40 minutes so decided to maximize it considering I felt pretty decent with a day off and 9 solid hours of sleep under my belt.  Warmed up one mile slow then 4 miles 6:58 pace then cool down to 40 minutes.  All on zero incline in an air-conditioned gym.

strolled out at 330 at post 6 to start my laps.  by lap 10 there were lots of sirens in the area. by lap 12 cops everywhere and I had to stop while they chased their fugitive that ditched the car he stole into the field.  then they staked out the place the rest of the night searching for him.  why did he have to bail in my running area???  In couldn't finish my run so I settled for opening the garage and standing in the light by my ambulance with my arms folded looking disgruntled.

Stuck on the treadmill at the Y with Val in kidzone.  My headphones died at 15 minutes in so I was pretty bored. Did speedwork because I am always bored on the treadmill and it helps to push buttons and make whatever up as I go along.  Michael was doing his own thing on the treadmill next to me so it helped we were both suffering.  

Warmed up 5 minutes, then 2 x 90 seconds on/off 6:18 pace, 4 x 60 seconds on/off from 5:52 to 5:46 pace, 2x90 seconds again at 6:18 pace, jogged a few minutes, 8 minutes at 6:40 pace, jogged a few minutes then finished the last half mile at 6:58 pace because Michael was done and the kids were done with kidzone and ready to go swimming.  Any week I can string together 40 miles somewhere in the sleepless madness I call my life is a good one so I'll call this week a success.

Stroller miles.   Did 45 minutes weights after at the Y.   Sister in Houston is still safe in a two-story home they evacuated to with family.  Streets are filled with water.  The levee is near breaching.  We are all terrified but a neighbor has a boat and thats the contingency plan
