Nice morning run. Weather is supposed to change over the next couple of days! 7:34 average.

Slept in this morning, so treadmill run. Progression run with 10 x 1 minute pushes.

Really dark run through the park this morning, followed by Zumba. Flailing my arm around in class made my elbow sore.

So, I had to press the running re-set button. I overdid it. I was really sick and run down last week. Actually, the last month has been a continuous cycle of recurring illness and constant stress. I couldn't sleep, and dropped weight because of loss of appetite. I can't run well in this condition, so I pulled the plug on the Phoenix Marathon and took about ten days completely off.

I'm trying to find a healthier balance in my life.

It felt good to get back out there today.
