My legs were a little sore this morning.  I must be to old to recover the way I'd like.

Nice morning for a run, however getting up early 4 times this week has left me tired.  Now why do I run?  So I can get tired?  Also my legs still have not fully recoved but today they felt alot better.  Maybe my legs are finally getting use to 40+ miles per week.  If I don't get 40 in Tom will go flying right by me and I can't have that.

I was tired so I set my alarm to get me up just before the sun came up to get ready for a Jog.  I felt pretty good when I woke up, maybe it was cause the Jazz won or it is Saturday or I finally got enough rest.  Anyway I decided to run at marathon pace for 10 miles.  I always like to run hard but I have to be careful not to do it to much so my legs can recover.

Great morning for a tempo 3 mile run.  I wanted to average 6:15's and I was hoping I'd go even faster.  I need to get use to regular tempo runs because I had a hard time getting into running fast.  Maybe it's stress at work.  Anyway the 1st two miles are slightly down and the last mile makes up for the down.  I got a 6:12, 6:06, 6:26 for an average of 6:15.

Still a little bummed out that I didn't make St. George.

There were about 50-75 people that showed up for the stake run.  I was feeling confident until a runner I haven't seen before arrived looking fast.  Come to find out he is going to BYU and his parents live in our stake.  He was tan, thin, and had a smooth stride.  I knew my only hope of beating him was if he was out of shape. 

The race started and I stayed behind speedy for about a half a mile then I decided to let him go.  My first mile was 5:50.  The second mile has a big hill that is about 150 yards long but also on the second mile you come down the same hill just a block over.  At the half way point speedy was 10 seconds ahead of me.  I ran the second mile in 6:10.  The last 3/4 mile is slighlty up hill.  I kept having thoughts of digging deep and trying to catch up to him but I figured he'd just pull away when he heard me coming.  What a wimp I am.  Anyway the 3rd mile was in 5:56.  I finished in 18:21 about 11 seconds behind the winner.   My kids Tanner (17) finished 4th with about a 21:00 and Dalls (11) finished 8th in 25:17, and Cambrey (14) finished in 32:42.  We don't encourage Cambrey to push to hard because she has a brain aneurysm.

If I want to do better in 5K's I need to get metally tougher and let myself feel a little more pain.  I figure a good start to getting metally tougher and getting use to running faster would be to do some 400 repeats.  I don't know if I'll do it but I think it would help my 5K times.

After the race I went over to my Dad's and helped him shingle his roof for 4 hours.  My legs hurt the whole time.  Ouch!

My legs are still sore from Saturdays activities.  I ran with Eric and I went much faster than I would have alone.  We ran at about a 7:25 mile pace.  My Garmin said low on batteries then it shut off.  I just charged it Saturday evening and this was my 1st run since it was charged.  I hope it is not dieing.

I wish the weather could always be like todays for running.

Time about 56 minutes

My legs are still a little sore.  I ran slow for 4 miles with the idea that my legs need more recovery easy miles.  After 4 miles I started feeling like a dang sissy so I picked up the pace for the last 3.  I felt much more manly by the end of the run.

I had managment meetings at the Sundance Resort.  We got out early enough to get a good run in.  I headed up the Alpine loop road past Aspen and past the closed gates to roads with no cars.  Yes it was wonderful to be in the snow capped mountains with no worries of cars.

I ran up the Alpine loop again.  It was wonderful in the morning watching the yellow sun hit the snow capped mountains, seeing the deer and the rabbits, birds etc....

Elevation change 6200 feet to 7700 feet.

This would be a good run for the WBR team.  There is parking just before the road is blocked off in the Mt. Timpanogas trailhead parking lot.

Went on the Father & Sons campout up Mill Creek Canyon at one of the scout sites. We had a good turnout.  No one wanted to get up at 6:00 am an go running with me.  Imagine that.  Anyway I headed up the canyon.  After about 2 miles the road was blocked off.  Yahoo, I got lucky again.  Free open mountain road to run on.  The last 1/4 mile had about 75 yards of snow on it.  It was a good time to turn around and see if breakfast was anywere near being ready.

My idea of todays workout was to get my legs ready to go fast for this weekends 5K down in Ephraim.  I was planning on doing 8 * 400 with a 400 rest inbetween with the total workout under 7 min. miles.  Hoping to do the 400's around 75 seconds.  I ended up doing 6 * 400.  I need to work up to more 400's.  Results -first one in 80, next three slightly down hill 79, 75, 74, last two flat 81, 79.

It felt like the 400's workout would get me in better 5K shape than doing the 3 mile tempo runs I've been doing lately.

Trying to get my legs ready for Saturdays 5K.  My legs still aren't ready or rested enough but hopefully by Saturday they will be.  I did a couple of fast quarters to remind my body I want some speed.

It turned out to be a wonderful morning for a race.  When I woke up there was frost on the ground so I was a little nerveous it would be on the cold side, but the sun came out and there was no wind so it was nice for running.  About 35-40 degrees.  My son Dallas and my sister-in-law ran the race. 

I saw Tom & Kim before the race.  I was hoping Tom would stay with me for the first mile but I was feeling good and started out on the fast side, staying up with the high school kids.  The local talent that broke the 2A state 2 mile record just a couple of weeks ago with a 9:38 was there so I knew there was no hope for first place.  After about a half a mile I was running right behind 3 highschool kids.  By the first mile I was running behind the local talent Daniel Howell.  I was slowly letting him leave me.  The rest of the race was more of the same with Howell boy beating me by about 25 seconds which I'm sure was just a nice easy fun run for him.  Places 1st and 2nd both got a $50 gift certificate to a local running store.  Maybe I'll get a new shirt or socks or shorts. 

My race mile splits were as follows: Mile 1 - 5:53,  Mile 2 - 6:12,  Mile 3 - 5:51 (Mile avg. - 5:59)  Mile two has an uphill section. 

The race ended up being 3.20 not the regulation 3.1.  My time above is adjusted back to 3.1.  My race time of the 3.20 was 18:54.

My son Dallas got a 24.35 and Jamie got a 25.03.  If the times were adjusted Dallas would have got close to a 24 even.  Dallas has never broke 25 so this was an excellent race for him.

Tom never seems to race well in Ephraim but Kim did great.  I told Dallas that he needed to beat Kim and he did.  Good Boy.

Nice morning for a run.  I've been doing 2 quarter mile sprints once a day during my runs to let my legs know I want some speed.  The fastest I've been doing the quarters is 75 seconds.  Anyway, this morning my body finally found the next gear and I ran the 2 quarter mile sprints  on a down sloping section in 70 seconds each.  I really had to push to get to that speed but it felt great.  In High school I would average 68 seconds for a whole mile now I only get 70 seconds on a down sloping road, running just a quarter mile.  Anyway 70 seconds felt really fast but I'm hoping to get it to 65 if my mind and body will work together.
