am--9.25 SC Parkway via Serenity out-and-back w/ 5x 1-min. pickups. I felt decent today. By the end of the week, my heel is just a bugger. But it shows improvement at the beginning of the week. I was able to negative split this run. Of course, the incline out and decline back helps that. RHR--53.

pm--3.25 A crummy day for running but good for most everything else. I ended up defaulting to a has-been treadmill for 30 minutes.

am--8 Nice hilly run from mi casa to Chuckwalla and back. I feel like I'm coming out of the fourth funk but also realizing that I need the kids as much if not more than they need me. RHR--52.

pm--3.5 Callousing run in the 110-degree heat. I went to the SC Rugby grounds and did a few loops and 6x barefoot striders. The '80s mix on shuffle, coupled w/ the sunglasses, kept me "cool." Strider song of the day: "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel.

am--5 Sidewinder w/ a buddy. A nice jaunt through the desert, chatting about lots of things. One of my favorite ways to catch up w/ someone is on a trail run. Too bad more people don't trail run. RHR--49.

am--6.5 Kidney Loop via Serenity. I got out a little later, so it felt warm. Or, maybe, that was just my mind playing tricks on me. I love looking at the data on runs like this because the pace gets stronger progressively throughout the run. RHR--47. 

I also finished two more books: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman and Coach Wooden and Me by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. 

Gaiman has taken the "Prose Edda" and the "Poetic Edda," digested them, and turned them into stories for the modern-day reader. It was fun to see the Norse gods rumble, bumble, and stumble through problems. The parallels between this mythology and the Judeo-Christian mythology is interesting--Loki as the devil, Odin as Jehovah/Christ. I'm not really sure who Thor would be. . . Elisha, maybe. 

Kareem's book kept me reading for other reasons. He tries to tell the story of his relationship with John Wooden without getting in the way too much. He succeeds. I really felt like I got a great glimpse of who Wooden was from the time he began recruiting Lew Alcindor. What a wise man Wooden was. He is probably near the top of my list of historical figures to meet. I found myself crying near the end as Kareem talked of Coach's failing health, yet the wisdom kept rolling. I would recommend this book highly.
