I mixed in 4 quarter mile strides in the 1:25-1:30 range.    I feel like I need to get my legs moving faster every now and then so they don't forget how.  I need to get the strides closer to 1:15 quarters.

Morning run, sunny, temp 60'

I wanted to accomplish two goals on this run.  Run the entire 6.6 miles in under 7 minute mile pace and run 3 of the miles in a 6:20 mile pace.

Everything was looking good until 2.3 miles into my fast 3 miles.  My left quad started to cramp just a little.  Last time it did that I kept running and then it hurt for 3 or 4 days so I was smarter this time and just stopped my run and waited 2 or 3 minutes for my legs to gain back strenght.  I then commenced again but not at the 6:20 pace.  I'm getting to old.  Every time I try to get faster something always comes up.  At least I got my under 7 goal.

I decided to put in a little speed. My legs have forgotten the fast gear. Everything starts to rattle like an old car when I put it in high gear.

The Tendon-bum-itis was acting up.  The last few days of some faster miles must have done it.

The run was fueled by an egg and a couple of squares of whaffle.  Yum.

Morning run, temp 54'

Today was fast day.  I ran a 3 mile tempo run with the 1st mile down hill and the next two flat.  Times were 5:55, 6:24, & 6:09, for a 6:09 avg.  After the tempo run on the way back home with about a mile left my left quad twinged a few times, letting me know that it doesn't like the fast running.  Better than last week when I had to cut my tempo run short.  My training is about a month behind where I wanted it to be for the WBR in just over a week.

We got 5 of the WBR "South Jordan Slackers" team on a run.  Don, John, Cheri, Taunia, and me.  We went and run around Daybreak lake.  Our team is about a 28 hour team and we start at 12:45.  I'd prefer starting earlier but that time will do.

I'm trying to introduce some speed to my legs without getting injured.  I ran 4 quarter strides in 1:22 avg. and then 1 fast down hill mile in 6:00.  I need to get in more speed work but my old man body doesn't like it so much.

I was going to run an easier run today maybe averaging 8:00-8:15 but I saw Cathy running up ahead and I wasn't catching her so I picked up the pace to about 7:30's and then I started catching her.  From then one I didn't feel like I needed to slow down and I even threw in a fast mile in 6:15.

I got to run 4 legs of the Ragnar WBR.  I was runner number 1 on team #432 - South Jordan Slackers.  Our team had a great time and I think most people want to do it again next year.  The weather was better for running compared to the last two years even thought it rained on us.  I'll take rain and 60' over sun and 90'.

#1 leg - 12:45PM - 5.1 miles, time 34:00,  Mile avg. - 6:40,  Mostly flat (Garmin didn't sink until half way through run.

#13 leg - 9:45PM - 8.50 miles, time 54:20,  Mile avg. - 6:23, One mile up and 7.5 miles down hill.

#25 leg - 8:30AM - 4.88 miles,  time 35:06,  Mile avg. - 7:11,  Slightly up hill.  I took it easy knowing I had to run another leg.

#35 leg - 3:30PM - 7.3 miles, Time 49:20,  Mile avg. - 6:45,  1.5 miles steep up and about 7 steep down.  I forgot my garmin when I swithed vans.  My quads were aching so I didn't push it due to fear of legs cramping up.  

I think my team got 168 out of about 670 teams which puts us at the 25% mark.  We had six women but were regestered as a male team.  We started out with 7 men but one got injured a couple weeks before the race. 

Our team had Taunia, Don, Andrea, Cheri, James, Julie, Chad, Matt, Abbi, John and Sue.

I'm doing the Murray 5K on July 4th.  I thought I'd better try and get mentally ready for a 5K by doing some mile repeats.  I averaged 6:03 on my three mile repeats with a 1 mile recovery inbetween.
