Saturday Morning run, temp 65'

Last long run before the Provo half next week.  My idea was to run the 1st 8 miles easy and the last 5 mileas at near half marathon race pace.  My plan was working fine.  I passed the 8 minute man at about mile 8.5 and left him in the dust.  I was hoping to get around 6:15-6:20 pace the last five miles but I ended up with 6:38 pace.  I always hope I'm in better shape than I am.  I haven't paid the price this year.  Oh well, it will make racing against my good bud Tom more exciting.

It was a perfect day for the Provo River Half Marathon.  The temperature was probably around 50' at the start.  Cold for standing and waiting but great for running.  It was nice seeing some running friends before and after the race.  The Lee's are pretty cool people. 

Anyway, I decided that I would run at 1:25 half marathon pace or stay with Tom Lee which ever was faster. I stayed with Tom for about 3 or 4 miles then he slowly let me inch my way ahead of him.

Mile 1 - 6:18,  Mile 2 - 6:17,  Mile 3 - 6:23

Mile 4 - 6:14,  Mile 5 - 6:39,  Mile 6 - 6:29

Mile 7 - 6:47,  Mile 8 - 6:48,  Mile 9 - 6:29

Mile 10 - 6:15, Mile 11 - 6:36, Mile 12 - 6:34

Mile 13 - 6:14

I didn't warm up enough because the 1st mile was hard.  My legs didn't want to run and I was getting worried that this wasn't going to be a good race, but then I started to feel like a runner again and I knew things would be fine.  The race went well and with 5 miles left I thought I'd push just a little harder.  It worked for a few miles but then I started feeling tired and my mind kept telling me to slow down.  I kinda listened to that lazy guy and slowed down.  However, with a mile left I realized that I could break 1:25 and I push hard again and realized that I wasn't as tired as that lazy guy was telling me.

Morning run, sunny, temp. 75'

I took a couple of weeks off after the Provo Half.  My new job is a hassle and the kids got the flu, but it's sure nice talking to you,..  I mean I've been working about 10-11 hr days trying to understand the new job so something had to give and it was the running. 

I don't have any races scheduled and I'll probably keep it that way so I can focus on the new job.  Hopefully, I don't get to fat and lazy.
