Morning run, snowy, breezy, temp. 36'

Dallas had a soccer game inside the Olympic Oval at 7:30am.  So I got up at 6:30 and headed north to the Oval.  It was snowing the entire time with about 2-3 inches on the ground.  Unfortunalty,  the wind was blowing from the north so I was running into the snow.  It was 6.85 miles to the Oval and then I ran a lap on the track inside the building with a fiend I saw running then watched the Soccer game.  Dallas's team was well ahead so I left early and had Taunia pick me up on the way back. I got my 40 miles in for the week.  I'm hoping I can get 40 per week through December. 

Mile Avg. - 8:06 (Slowest mile 8:43, Fastest mile 7:39)

I ran around the S. Jordan river bottom neighborhoods.  There are a few good rolling hills that help change my pace.  I felt pretty good.  Hope that means I wont be getting sick soon.

It was Tuesday Tempo day.  I did a two mile tempo run.  I felt pretty good and I ran them in 5:54 and 6:06 for an average of 6:00.  The second mile is always hard mentally especially in the dark and cold of pre-dawn.

Felt good.  There is a cool Christmas manger in a field I run by that is lite up and it actually had some live horses standing around it.  Also the new South Jordan Temple is only about a mile from my house and they are starting to get the walls up.  Anyway this morning they had it lite up for constrution purposes but it looked really cool in the dark hours.

Morning run, 8 inches of snow, temp. 35'

I was going to go ten miles but the snow was slowing me down and I wanted to get home to get the day going so I just did 9.  It was fun to run in the snow.  I must still have some of the young kid in me.  When I got home I shovelled the driveway and then rolled a huge snow ball, then to the church to shovel then home to start on the honey-dew list.

Morning, treadmill, Novi, MI

The TV helps some, but 5 miles is a long way on a treadmill.  The thing that helps the most is if someone else is in the room exercising.  Tom is the man to get in some 10 mile runs in India.

I went exploring with Garmin,  we ran a big loop.  I ate way to much this week.  Hopefully the weight gain will be minimal.

I must need more rest and less stress.  I couldn't get going today, my brain was tired but I went out in the cold and did 3 mile tempo run anyway.  The miles splits were (6:32, 6:17, and 6:06)  The last mile drops about 75 feet in elevation or it wouldn't have been as fast.

Morning run, 3 inches snow, temp. 25'

My work load hasn't got lighter as the Chistmas season has got busier.  But I got up early and got a run in because I missed yesterday, so now I'm tired.  The snow slowed me down but I tried to enjoy running in the snow.

Had a good run even with all the junk I've been eating.  It proves that eating junkfood before a run isn't always bad.  But maybe the good run came because I knew I didn't have to work today.

Morning run, Ephraim UT, Temp near zero.

I played basketball with the brother-in-laws from 6-7:30am then I came home and ran from the in-laws up the canyon.  I ran on paved snow covered road for 6 of the miles and two on canyon roads.  The last mile up the canyon was an 11:49 mile due to deeper snow.

My legs were a little soar due to basketball yesterday.  It was hard to notice my soar legs due to the cold wind trying to freeze me.

Morning run at Olympic Oval

Dallas had an indoor soccer game at the Olypmic Oval. I ran on the track.  It felt good to run with other people on solid footing.  I averaged about 7 minute miles.  I finally got a 40 mile week in this month. 

My sister-in-law Jamie got Married today to a good man named Chad Frandsen.  At the wedding luncheon I got to sit by katie & Logan Fielding.  It was nice to talk running with a lighting fast runner.

After about a mile into the jog I guy going the opposite direction ran by me going fast and it reminded me that Tom is getting way to fast and that I was going slow so I decided to run a couple of fast miles to make sure I still had it. 

I ran more miles this year than I think I ever have and I didn't run a marathon.  Hopefully, it will help me run a good marathon this spring.
