I went golfing yesterday so I thought I better push it alittle today.  Gotta get use to running a little faster so I did 6 Quarter mile repeats with about 3/4 miles recovery inbetween.  I averaged about 81 second quarters.

I ran the Murray 5K with 7 other people from our WBR team.  We all wore our Slacker shirts which made it easy to spot each other.  I was hoping to do the race in 18:30 but I didn't quit pull it out.  I haven't been doing enough speed work to get myself mentally prepared for 3 miles of pain or I just don't care as much about pushing as I did in my younger age. 

The race was nice.  It had an out and back part and then ran around the park to the finish line.  Mile one was a little up hill and I hit it in 6:00.  Mile two came back down the hill but finished with a little hill which I got in 5:57.  Mile 3 was about even in total elevation with a few small rolling hills which I ran in 6:06.  I pushed the last 0.12 miles in 5:00 average.  I liked the simple course but I need to do more training for a 5K if I want to do get my time down. 

Taunia got a 26:45 along with Abbi.  Matt got a 21:01, Sue got a PR of about a minute with a 25:13 and her husband John beat her by about 45 seconds.  This was April's first race ever  and she was only about 5-10 seconds behind Taunia and Abbi.  Julie got a PR of almost 2 minutes with a 31:17

I went with our YW to camp.  The activity was going to Snowbird and playing around.  After doing the Apline Slide we went up the Tram which I think went up 2800 feet in less than 3 miles.  Anyway I decided to run down instead of taking the Tram back down.  It was great fun running through some snow and down some roads.  But I took some forks in roads that turned to trails at the end and had to quick hike down the rest.  It took me about 22 minutes to make it down the mountain.  My quads were killing me by the time I got to the bottom.  I forget I'm getting old before I make some decisions.

My quads still complained just a little from the downhill run on Tuesday but it didn't effect the run much.  I got my shirt and hat wet before going out in the heat and at mile 4 I soaked my shirt and hat again to ward off the heat.

I decided it was time to go 7 under 7 or 7 miles under 7 minute pace.  I got to get my body use to running a little faster.

My body was complaining this morning.  To much stess and not enough sleep I guess.

I drove up Friday night to Bear Lake scout camp to help drive the scouts home Saturday morning.  Got up at 5am and went for a jog along the highway.  The burger and fries and milkshake the night before probably wasn't the best fuel for the run.

Not a lot of desire to run hard but I pushed some faster miles anyway.
