Wow. I really let this go for a while. Although I haven't really posted anything since the Ogden Marathon, that doesn't mean I haven't been running. Although I haven't been running much. I keep feeling more and more like a former athlete than an athlete.
Anyway, I've been wanting to get out and run some trails, but that's been tough. First, I don't have a lot of time these days. Second, I'm really in bad shape for running up hills. I guess spending six months training for a road marathon will do that to your legs.
I've started going out on weekends for runs up Rock Canyon in an attempt to regain some climbing legs. Since I have today off, I thought I'd go out for a run up the canyon this morning, too. It was nice to get out before the sun did, and I felt better than I have in a while. It's still humbling to think about how slow I am now compared to a couple of years ago.
After I got home, I put Elliott in the stroller and went out for a short extra-credit loop around the neighborhood.
