One of the top ten for sure or maybe even top 5 worst runs EVER! Ran from Brian Head condo to Panguitch lake. I felt sickly-ish all day. Maybe altitude sicknes or something. Dizzy, light headed, totally drained of energy. Just did not want to run- AT ALL! Finally left the condo at 4:30 p.m because Doug was also up here and was gonna drive over and go fishing at the lake. So I sent Myler with him and I ran over. The condo sits at 9,710 ft and in the first 3.9 miles I climbed up to 10,640 ft or so. Felt good that I kept the pace under 9 min miles on the first 2 steep miles then hit like 7:30's up to where it starts to drop. Didn't run any of the downhill hard or fast. First I felt crappy and couldn't... and I didn't want my quads to get jacked skrewing up any potential workouts next week. So fastest mile was like 6:15 and most were just under 6:30 pace or so. Had the shirt off again and got fried on the back and shoulders. Ugh... could this run get any crappier? Yes!!!!!! Stomach started to bug bad around 11 miles into it and forced a road side stop. Anyways I finally go to the boat ramp and found Doug's truck. Waited there for about 35 min's before the spotted me and came to pick me up. Just laied there in the back of the truck and wanted to die for awhile. dehydrated, dizzy, trashed, sick to stomach. FML for sure. 7:06 avg for the run. Kind of forced this run. Most likely would have been better off just bagging running today. But wanted to hit that 100 mile week... because it looks good on paper:). I guess...

Have you ever run the loop around Navajo Lake, just a bit south of Brian Head? That's a great trail. Never been to Panguitch Lake, although you make it sound great :-)

No I haven't ran anything over by Navajo. Will have to try it though.

lol... Pang lake is actually ok. Just a bad day for Superfly :)
