I was planning on running easier today but about 100 yards before I came to the first intersection I turn down someone was heading on that road going pretty fast so I decided I'd see what it would take to stay with them.  I had to run a 7:10 1st mile just to not loose ground.  He slowed a bit and then I caught up to him and talked to him for a few minutes before we parted was.  He was training for the halloween half.

Did some strides.  My legs getting a little tired from a few days of faster than average training and I'm not use to this early morning thing as my work showers/bathroom are getting remodeled over the next 3 weeks so I can't run during lunch.

I was thinking that in honor of the SG marathoners I'd run at least one mile fast.  I did it in 5:40.  I wish I could do that at the end of a marathon.

Nice to have another short sleeve morning.  Did 6 .15 mile strides.  The last .5 miles in 2:28 slightly aided.  Hard to believe my fastest half mile sprint is the pace the world-class marathoners run the entire marathon.  Wow are they moving!

After a though week at work putting in extra hours and working late Friday then going out to eat at 8:30pm with the family for burgers, fries, and icecream.  I'd planned on running a 14-15 easy miler Saturday morning.  But we came home and watched a movie eating candy, then my son Dallas came home and said I should run a 5k with him in the morning. I didn't even know there was a race.  I'm kinda making up my excuses.

Anyway the morning was cloudy with a temp of about 48' and some wind.  There were probably just a little over 100 people for the race.  I could tell at the starting line my real competition would be all the Bingham High JV cross country runners.  Luckily the Varsity have state next week so they couldn't make it.  I ran 4 easy miles before the race and was warmed up. 

The gun went off and the JV runners took of very fast.  Durning the 1st mile I passed a couple of the JV runners and got a 5:48 mile.  I was about 20 seconds behind the 1st pack of JV runners.  I though I had them right were I wanted them and that they would slow down the second mile and I'd catch up to them.  But instead I was falling a litte further behind.  My legs felt week and I just didn't have what I was expecting.  I did pass another JV runner.  My second mile was in 6:14.  Sad. 

I put everything I could into the last mile but it didn't feel good.  My son Dallas came in 3rd and continued to out pace me.  The race was short and the last .9 miles was in 5:16 or a 5:51 mile pace.  Dallas got about a 16:30.  The first time my Son has bet me.  I guess all the running this summer and fall really helped him out.  I did win the 30 and over age division and got a $30 gift certificate for I-Tunes.

My several day headache is just about gone.  I'm running the SOJO half in a few days and decided I wouldn't run Thur or Fri so I pushed a couple of marathon pace miles to make sure the engine was still working

I was thought I was excited to run this race and ready to preform close to last years time.  I thought I did everything well, eating, sleeping etc...  I had a .7 mile warm up and was ready to go.  For some reason last week on my 5K I didn't have that mental toughness and the fighting desire.  This week not to many miles into the run I could tell I didn't have it again.  It's like I'm missing my normal fight/desire.  Chemical imbalance?  Depressed?  Maybe I needed to watch Rocky or something before the race.

The race started off with the temp about 59' according to the car.  I don't think it warmed up at all during the race.  The wind was a blowing pretty good. but not enough to effect the race as much as my time comparing to last year. 

After the first mile I was in 11th place.  After 2nd mile I was in 9th.  I moved to 8th and 7th and 6th during miles 3-11.  Then I got passed during mile 12.  My left quad started showing signs of cramping up with about 1.5 to go but not a problem because not enough miles left for it to cramp up hard.  I had 3 guys in my site in front of me the last 2 miles and didn't have the desire to get them???  My last years time would have got me a 3rd place.

Took it easy and shorter than normal just trying to enjoy the run.  My legs are much less sore from Saturdays half than I though they should be.
