Afternoon run, Sunny, temp 80'

I dragged Tanner out of the house to run with me.  I needed a pacer to slow me down.  Taunia and Dallas rode there bikes with us. 

I could feel my stiches in my side a little more than the face.  Fat jiggles on your side when you run.  It felt good to get out and exercise again.

I was running and saw some running signs.  I found out as I passed an aid station that they were having a South Jordan 1/2 marathon.  I wish I would have known.  It ran one block away from my home and looped around and ran a block to the other side of my home.  Dang.

I ran 3 miles fast.  The middle mile was uphill.  I ran the 1st & 3rd in a 6:30 avg. and the 2nd mile in 7:00.  I thought I'd do that faster.  Maybe not enough sleep and ran a bit to hard yesterday.  Who knows.

Ran on the Jordan River path.  At the start of miles 2, 3, & 5 I ran a fast quarter mile with times of 76, 74, & 71.  Much slower than the high school days.

11AM Run, Sunny, Temp 75'

On a mini-family vacation.  We went to Bear Lake.  At the top of the mountain I got out and ran down the hill to Bear Lake where my good family was waiting for me with a Rasberry Shake only 1/3rd eaten.  I dropped in elevation about 1,700 feet.

I ate breakfast with my family at the hotel in Logan.  I went for a short run and they went swimming at the hotel.  I joined them when I got back.

Mondays down hill run must have got me a little sore.  Hope all systems are recovered and ready to go for Saturday's 10K.

Race: Deseret News 10K (6.2 Miles) 00:36:22, Place overall: 92, Place in age division: 4

Race started at 6AM, winds calm, temperature about 70' and no sun until after the race was finished.

I rode up with my neighbors the Reeves.  It was nice to relax on the way over to the race.  I was hoping to run at a 5:59 pace or faster.  I achieved my goal. I ran at a 5:50 pace according to Garmin which also said I ran 6.25 miles.

Mile 1 5:27
Mile 2 5:27
Mile 3 5:55
Mile 4 5:56
Mile 5 5:50
Mile 6 6:18
Mile 6.2 6:06

I was only 3 seconds behind 3rd place in my age division.  With about 3/4 of a mile left I knew I was going to accomplish my goal and didn't have further insentive to run extra hard to the finish.  Also, I don't know who is in my age division or what place I was in.  I think as I get older I lose some of my competitivness.  I need a good rivalry to get me to push to the limits at the end of a race.  It would be way cool to see at every mile marker what overall place you are in and your age division position.

Saw a lot of neighbors and a few running friends at the finish.  I saw the two Kenya type runners battleing for 1st place in the marathon.  The guy in 2nd passed the 1st place guy with only 1 block left. It was fun to watch.

Everything felt good.  A few muscles were slighty sore.  Glad to have another race completed injury free.

Legs were still a little stiff and my left knee was aching a little on the inside, probably a tendon.  Sometimes this old body doesn't like the abuse.

The inside of my left leg just an inch or so down from my knee has been bugging me.  I took Wed & Thur off to see if it would help and I've been taking Ibuprofen the last couple of days also.  I ran today and the pain was low and almost went away after a couple of miles when the pain of running started taking over.  Hopefully it is something that will go away soon.  The run didn't seem to make it any worse.

Morning bike ride.

The leg was still bugging me so I opted for a bike ride on my Huffy - Shopko special.  No pain when riding but after walking around it still hurt.

Time 28:50, Miles 7.4,  MPH 15.4
