This felt hard. &nbsp;I was huffing and puffing. &nbsp;</p> <p>Got kids off to school. &nbsp;Picked up Kelli and drove to Antelope Island to do the 25k loop. &nbsp;The weather was amazing and I was very over dressed. &nbsp;I felt discouraged about this run. &nbsp;I walked all the uphills and my legs felt SO heavy. &nbsp;This run was 45 minutes slower than when I did it in January of 2015. &nbsp;I&rsquo;m not sure if I need to gut it out more or if my legs are just tired. Time to spend more miles on the trails. &nbsp;100 might just do me in.</p> <p>TT: &nbsp;4:32:17. AP: &nbsp;14:20. Elevation : &nbsp;2168.
