Morning run up Provo Canyon with the relay team, breezy, temp 65-70'

I believe we had 7 people from the team there.  I was impressed.  Most of the team made it to Vivian Park in good time with Will leading the way. Tom and myself were right behind him with Paul & Greg & Kerry just behind us.  Verdon was nice enough to take it a bit slower and make us feel good about our run.  Will and I were pressed for time so we didn't wait around much and headed back.  Will ran with me for awhile but was nice enough to let me be the first back to the parking lot.

My legs didn't feel race day ready even with Friday off.  I didn't read Sasha's comment until Saturday about running an easy 7 on Friday.  I have been struggling to know if I'm over training or if it is ok to run when your legs are feeling sore or sluggish.  If it is ok to run on sore legs then I wouldn't worry.  This makes 3 weeks in a row of 50+ miles a week.  I don't think I've ever done that before in my life. 

I made it up in 47:05 and down in 37:05.  I pushed harder on the way down.

Time 84:10,  Mile Avg. - 7:22

My tendon-bum-itis flared up a bit.  I could feel it after the run and all day long.  It may have been from a combination of running and weeding and working bent over a lot Thursday evening and Friday evening and Saturday.
