Biggest week of the year, so far.

am--5 Barefoot grass loops at the softball field. I took the last two days off becuase some hammy twinges on the run the other day. Consequently, I decided to go close to home and take it easy. This was just what I needed. The loops took me about 30 minutes, and the high-powered sprinklers were on in the same area the whole time. Must take a lot of water to maintain what amounts to an inch or so of grass spread across an outfield. I'll have to do a run like this at least once a week.

pm--4 Ran and did some grass loops, again. I love them. 
 

I also finished The Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare. I'm in the process of looking into stuff for future teaching.

pm--4 Got out w/ my neighbor. It felt rough tonight. He got new shoes and was pushing the pace. 
 

I finished The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo. It's an award winning YA book written in verse. Quick read w/ contemporary themes.

pm--5 My motivation comes and goes, but eventually I start feeling bad about being a slug and head out. The barefoot grass loops w/ Robert Nesta on the buds was perfect.

pm--7 A little longer run up around the Canyons. I'm thinking I need to make better food choices. 
 

I finished The Leavers by Lisa Ko. It's on my list of contemporary fiction TBR list. It reminded me of a shorter, better version of The Goldfinch. Deals with culture, language, and finding your place.

am--3.5 Just a few miles at the end of a tired week. Hope I bounce back after a rest day. 
 

I finished The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. Brutal and funny, the book is a well-written example of meta fiction. I would recommend it.

am--5 My regular Orem run up 400 E. and back. I felt okay. It seems like shoes w/ cushioning that gives and, thus, allows too much pronation on my funky right foot makes my inner knee ache a bit more.

I finished There There by Tommy Orange. It's an interesting novel told from multiple perspectives that coalesces at a powwow.
