We (Wendy and Amanda) went to water aerobics at 9am.  Felt so good.  But I undid all that good afterwards with raking dirt, weeding, etc. immediately after I got home.  Three plus hours later I took a quick shower and headed to Costco. Since I didn't even eat lunch, I ate samples there. When we got home at 5pm, the irrigation flood water had started, so I went back out to the orchard and pine trees and dug trenches for the irrigation water to flow.  Didn't come in until dark around 9pm.  I ate some left over noodles, started three loads of laundry and went to bed at 11pm.  Have to get up early for long run tomorrow.  My shoulders, arms and hands and back are so sore.  Took me awhile to fall asleep.

17.75 in 3:42.  Last 8 miles with Wendy on MCT in PG.  Woke up to the alarm at 5:15.  Since I ate so little and so late last night, I felt hungry so I ate a yogurt and a banana and headed out at 6am.  My arms and back still sore from yesterday's shoveling dirt, digging trenches last night.  It's only been 6 days since I raced a Half so legs are still fatigued.  I managed to run in the high 10s the first 9 miles.  Took some Powerbar chews that Wendy brought me at the PG Canyon Rd parking lot/bathroom, I was at my mile 9.75.  Then we headed out for 8 more.  By now the sun was peeking over the mountains and getting warm.  I had to walk a lot the last couple miles.  Wendy was very patient and so nice to sacrifice her morning to run/walk with me! 

I think I'm going to sign up for a marathon in 3 weeks, most likely the Nebo Marathon.  I was eyeing the East Canyon Marathon; but we have 2 wedding receptions to go to the Friday before so Nebo is better choice as it is closer to home.

Got up super early, 4:15 so I could take Lily, Sammi and Jessie to the airport.  Ran 10 solo, slow miles with tired legs. After I got home, spent the rest of the morning and afternoon digging trenches on the east side of the shed removing the short logs-border, weeding and raking the dirt on the east side of the pines/orchard.  Arms so sore.  Showered then went to Elder Macfarlane's wedding.

Bright sunny sky 72F at 8:45am. AP: 10:48 (exactly the same AP as Saturday's).

Very cool watching the total eclipse on NASA channel and KSL.  Went outside at 11:30am to view the 91% eclipse here.  Darker, dusk like atmospere/sky even though it is cloudless and the sun is high above at 11:30am.  Temp fell, crescent shadows from the tree reflected on the front porch and walkway.  Holes from the colander also reflect crescent shapes.
