Yesterday's fast run in the heat made todays slower run in the heat feel much better even though it was still plenty hot.  I ran with Cal for about a mile.  Us old men seem to get injured to much.

My sister that lives in Lehi has a tradition of inviting the family over for 4th of July eve and to sleep over in the back yard and then have breakfast at about 8am and then play water kickball.  We had hotdogs for dinner and left our older kids to sleep in the back yard and the rest of us drove home for a good nights sleep.  On the way home I figured out a way to run a 10K and still make it back to my sisters on time.  Riverton has a 10K at 7AM and the race is only about 6 miles from my home.  So I got up and biked over to the start.  It would have been a much nicer ride if I wasn't riding my 10 year old $59 Huffy 15 speed and the wind wasn't blowing from the south. 

My idea was to go out a little slower than my potental.  I saw my South Jordan rival and it got the adrenaline going a bit.  The 1st mile felt good so I kinda stick to my plan with a 6:17.  Two great runners took off and left a pack of about six of us that I was tucked behind as we ran south into the wind.  The pace was what I was hoping for.  The pack started breaking up so I followed the 3rd and 4th place.  We left two college aged guys and I followed a young balding guy and a high school aged youth.   Mile 2 was in 6:28.  On mile 3 we only had to go into the wind half the time and we did it in 6:16.  I decided that 3rd place would be cool to get and passed 3rd and 4th runners with a mile 4 in 6:16.  Mile 5 had a couple of very small hills and I didn't push them hard.  As I was finishing the last hill all of a sudden I heard footsteeps coming quick.  It was one of those darn college kids I left a few mile back.  Mile 5 was in 6:25.

I was in race mode and I wanted 3rd place.  I shifted gears and decided that if that college boy was going to beat this old man that he was going to have to feel a lot of PAIN.  After another half mile I could still hear his footsteeps.  I figured he would out sprint me if I couldn't shake him but it was I who was feeling the PAIN.  I didn't let up and he slowy faded so I couldn't hear him any more.  Mile 6 was in 5:42.  I then snuck a peak to see if there was a chance of him catching me but he was out of reach.  I finished the race in 3rd with no family there to see.  They hadn't quite made it there yet to take me to my sisters for breakfast. 

It was a great day.  Breakfast was wonderful, we played kickball, and went to a movie and to a parade and did fireworks.

HAPPY 40th Birthday Taunia!!!  I'm married to an old woman.  That still looks young.

Taunia biked as I ran.  It was fun to have her along.  We did the Temple Day-Break loop.  I ran faster than I would nomally.  I gotta try to impress my woman.

Enjoyable run.  We had our WBR team picnic last night.  I didn't resign up which may have been a mistake.  I'm going to run with a neighborhood team, if it really comes together.  I'll miss the team and getting one of those cool battons for finishing in the top 3 of our division.

Ran south on the river path.  My hamstrings were tight.  If feels good to get out of the office and the stress even on a hot day.

I did the dump run.  At the half way point I was ahead of the 8 minute man by 20 seconds.  Then I hit the down hill portion of the run and was able to put some good distance between him.

I was feeling like it was time for a fast run.  I was going to do it this morning but the family went to a movie in the park that South Jordan puts on for free last night and we got home too late for an early morning run.  So I decided I'd do a 6 mile tempo run in the heat during lunch.  Miles were 6:47, 6:49, 6:46, 6:32, 6:13, 6:32.

I wasn't going to run today but my laptop at work died. The IT department said it would take a few hours to get me a new one.  It was fate.

My body didn't like the fact that I was trying to make it run this morning.  After Wednesday's 9 miles and then Wednesday evenings basketball my body was a little sore.  You would think taking Thursday off would give my old bones time to heal.  Anyway it took about 4 miles until my body gave in and let me start running a little easier.

With the family on vacation at a beach house.  Been eating to much junk.  Didn't feel like running to fast.  Very enjoyable run.

I felt like an old man on todays run.  No bounce in the step.  I thought I would run a couple quarters to get my body going.  The first one was uphill and I did it in a slow 95 seconds the second was was down hill and I did it in a slow 81 seconds.  I couldn't get out of old man mode.  I haven't run fast for so long I forgot that there is pain involved with speed. 

Hopefully, my body will figure out how to go fast before the Provo Half.  I don't want Tom in striking distance after a few miles.  I want to crush any crazy ideas that it is possible to beat me.

I decided to do a couple of quarters to see if I could improve upon yesterdays poor performace.  I ran a 78 & a 76 which is much better than yesterday but I should be doing them under 70.  Maybe I'll give it another try in a day or two.  It is a metal thing.  I'm not motivated enough to want to cause pain to my body.  With the WBR done and no marathons on the calendar and being busy with other things I've kinda lost motivation to stay in good shape.  Good thing I signed up for the Provo half or I'd be a couch potato by now.
