A.M. 20 mile run from my house to Bridal Veil Falls and back. Felt sluggish somewhat. First half was in 1:12:52. Then turned around and ran a tempo for the last 10. Was stuck at 5:48, but at least was consistent for the first 4 miles. Then I got out of the canyon and all of a sudden felt like I was in a sauna. It was not too warm, maybe 75 F, but there was more humidity than what I am used to. In any case, it did not feel good. I held my own for another 3 miles with 7 miles in 40:54, and then started laying serious goose eggs - 6:04, 6:15, and 6:06 for the last mile with a heroic effort. The Spanish branch elders were playing soccer at about 18.7 mark (yes, I know that course well enough to tell to you how far along you are with 0.1 precision). They gave me some encouragement which I needed at that point. I ended up with 59:19 for the last 10 miles and total of 2:12:11 for 20 miles.
Afterwards I felt quite miserable for some time, but after getting some fluids in I recovered.
We had a baptism in our ward in the afternoon. A mother with her three children got baptized. They are originally from Wyoming. She got tired of the party life style in her town, came to Utah, and requested the missionaries to teach her.
The children ran on their own - all except Joseph. Benjamin did 5, Jenny and Julia 1.5, and Jacob 0.5.
P.M. 0.5 with Joseph in 3:59.
