Another day on the path.  I ran one mile in the Vibram sandals.  I'll see if I can work up to more without injury.

Our relay team did an evening run with our vest and headlamps to make sure everything was working properly.  Then we all had chocolate milk and rootbeer floats.  Yum!

Ran up to Butterfield canyon which was 8.75 miles.  I got their about 5 minutes before the rest or our relay team drove up to do a canyon run.  We ran 4 up and 4 back down.  The 8.75 miles to the canyon was a gain of 800 feet.  The 4 miles up the canyon was a gain of 1,000 feet.

Started out the run with a slight tendon ache on the inside of my left knee which is the norm.  I wish that would go away.  I hadn't had a fast day for awhile so I decided I'd try one today.  I ran miles 3&4 in 6:10 & 6:02.  I then changed into my running sandals and welcomed the 1-2 minute rest.  Ran 1 mile in the sandals.

Perfect temperature for a run.  My legs were a little sore from yesterdays run and I should probably have made this an easy recovery run but I really don't like going easy.

The first mile is always the hardest, aches and pains need to get worked out and my running form doesn't feel right.  1 mile in sandals.

Getting ready for a fun WBR weekend.  Our team had a 5AM start time but I thought there was about a 50% chance we'd bump up against the holding times so I requested a time between 5:30AM and 6:30AM.  They gave our team a 2PM start time which is a 9 hour difference.  The team mates weren't to happy about that. 

One mile in sandals

The South Jordan Slackers had another successful Wastach Back Relay!  Around 29 hours 20 minutes.  We started Friday at 10AM and finished Saturday at 3:20PM.  I'm on a great team of neighbors and we have a lot of fun.

I had leg 3 and my awesome running son Dallas had Leg 4.  After the fiirst 2 legs Dallas had 58 kills and I had 54.  However, my last leg was 7.7 miles and Dallas's was only 3.8 miles.  Dallas added 49 kills to get to 107 total but I was able to get 62 kills to get to 116.  Dallas never got passed but I did get pass once.

I did have to finish the last 4 miles of leg 25.  Andrea's knee just wouldn't keep going.  We had fun eating, running, trying to sleep, going to cabins, playing ping pong, riding scooters etc...   

Leg 3 - 5.58 Miles, Mile avg. - 6:30    Elev Gain 233

Leg 15 - 5.04 Miles, Mile avg. - 6:42    Elev Gain 56

Leg 25 - 4 Miles, Mile avg. - 7:08   Elev Gain 55

Leg 27 - 7.68 Miles, Mile avg. - 6:56   Elev Gain 616, Loss 730, Net -114

On Trek with our Stake about 20 miles east of Evanston WY.  Got up around 5:45 and took a easy 2 mile jog before people started waking up.  We only pushed handcarts for 4 miles and got done about 12:30pm.  The kids had solo time at 2PM and I decided to climb a nearby mountain.  It went up 400 feet in .4 miles and it felt great to get to the top and have an amazing view of the area.  I ran down the peak and up to another and back to camp which ended up being about 2 miles.

I decided to run mile four fast hoping to get under six minutes.  The two enemies were heat and wind.  I thought I could out battle them and get the mile under six minutes.  At the halfway point of the mile I was just under six but then I started losing it and could only pull out a 6:02.

Forgot my running clothes yesterday so I didn't run, so today I decided I'd do a faster run and add and extra mile.
