Too damn hot!

Went to South Mountain Park to go for a trail run. It was hot. I ran the National Trail up to Buena Vista point and felt pretty fried by the time I got there. I did see a coyote, some flowering saguaros, and a bunch of chuckwallas along the way, which made it worthwhile. The run back down was a bit of a struggle, as I was very low on energy and pretty thirsty. Definitely thankful for a water tap at the trailhead when I got back. Still feeling out of sorts and weak now, 7 hours later.

A really great hike in the Superstition Mountains with Aurélie and Dani from the lab I am visiting here. Saw a couple of rattlesnakes, some beautiful lizards, and an iguana hiding in an iguana-sized cave. This was followed by a refreshing swim in Canyon Lake. Great day!

Another fine 95F day in Tempe. Ran intervals on a dirt path going around a sports field on campus here. Did 8 of these, about 720m each, with 1 minute rest. Throat was dry from the start, but at least the temperature dropped as the workout went on.

shoes: Red Asics 2011

To Papago Park and on trails in the park from my hotel in Tempe. I forgot that the sun sets earlier here than in Sweden right now, and so ended up in complete darkness about halfway through the run. Found my way back ok though, using the direction of planes coming into PHX as a compass.

Running 53:12 [2] 7.09 mi (7:30 / mi)
shoes: Red Asics 2011

The "usual" East Rock perimeter loop. Feeling a bit unmotivated and sluggish at the start, which is not a huge surprise after 7 races in 11 days. Felt better and lighter as the run went on, and started thinking and getting excited about upcoming races: the Billygoat and Tiomila.

Still in Atlanta this morning, as Kat and I volunteered to get bumped off our flight to White Plains in exchange for a night at the Marriott and two round-trip tickets anywhere AirTran flies for each of us. Spent most of the evening at the Concierge Lounge, feeding. Yum.

Running 44:12 [2] 7.37 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: Red Asics 2011

Recovery run with Becks. Grateful for the company as motivation was minimal. Tired after a great weekend of racing with great friends. I really do miss the US orienteering community when I am in Sweden - there is nothing quite like seeing all the familiar faces and feeling like you are surrounded by family.
