1 lap at Memorial last night, and 2 more today

There's a nice running trail here in Houston called Memorial Park, I don't know if you know it. I don't get up there very often, but found myself there yesterday, when I had some extra time, and tonight when I figured out that the cold front would be making it's way through this evening. Yesterday's lap was a little rough, and I think I wasn't quite recovered from Saturday's long run. My legs were rubbery, and I smelled like ammonia afterwards, which I've heard is what happens when you're too low on carbohydrates, and you start to cleave the amino group off your amino acids and start breaking them down as fuel. That's what I heard anyways, I think it makes sense.

Today was good. Nice and cool.

Maybe I'll start going there once a week, since it's getting cooler, I can go after work. I always find myself going faster than usual, so maybe I can just go there and call it a tempo run. Maybe it's time I moved on from the easy running base-building phase. What do you think?

Sorry I missed you. I was there last evening as well. 1 loop for me. Hope you didn't hurt your neck.

Hope the pooch is ok. Sorry he hasn't been feeling well. :(

Love your blog. It inspires me.
Is there a running group exclusive to Pasadena? I joined Bay Area Running Club, but they run in Clear Lake/Seabrook.

Hi Susie,

I don't know of any Pasadena clubs either. My club is Clear Lake Fitness Club and we run in Clear Lake too.

You may already know, but my fellow bloggers Joe and Sarah are in BARC as well.

See you on the roads.
