Fuck, those miles were hard. So. Much. Pain.

And the “daylight” did nothing for me. How am I supposed to work on my base tan? Rude, Salt Lake. Just rude.

3.0 miles.

34:19.

11:27 pace.

lolol - that’s almost 30 seconds/mile slower than I’ve been running. Talk about dead legs.

ALSO: I forgot to bring water with me. “It’s only three miles,” I said to myself. “I drank 124 ounces of water at work today,” I reasoned. #lolnope I dehydrate SO quickly. When I got home, my fingers were sausages and the ring that normally fits was stuck. Would not budge more than you see in that photo.

But fear not! I pounded some water when I got home, and after that, bathing, redressing, and putting some food in my person, the ring can be removed.  Oh! And the bruises on my shins are from all of those cleans yesterday. I like the barbell nice and snug against my legs when I lift.

Now: I am off to go explore SLC a bit and see a documentary, because the nerd life doesn’t slow down for yopros.
