      Now that I'm not sick anymore, or atleast enough to do a lot, I went for a good fast run.  My first mile my sock was having problems and wasn't staying on my foot.  It was going into the buttom of my shoe to my toe.  After the first mile I was sick of it, so after my first mile, where I lost some elevation, I had to go back, change the socks, and go and run some more.  My first two miles were in 5:05 and 5:43(due to the downhill and uphill).  Later I did 3 more miles where I lost some elevation, but still averaged a 5:30.  Then I did a 6:10 or something close to that cool down last mile.  And then a little more actually cooling down cool down.

    When I came home from school, I was really hungry and my mom had just baked a bunch of bread.  I ate a half a loaf, and that didn't agree with my run.  I felt sick, and had to stop twice.  Did the first two miles at a pretty good pace, 5:45

     Did two 4mile sets.  first was in 23:29, and second was in 23:17.  I wish I could've gone faster, but I still felt like crap from being sick.  If this doesn't get better soon, my running times are gonna go way down in races.
