Noon run, mostly cloudy, temp 50'

Nice day for a run.  My brain was fried but my body was fresh and I listened to my brain.  It told me that it didn't have enough energy left to push my body and to just enjoy the run which I did.  I think I need a vacation from work.

Morning run, temp 40'

I heard it might rain today so I'd rather run in the rain at home in the morning than at noon at work.  My brain is still a little worn out but getting better.  I decided I needed to run at least one fast mile since I haven't run any for almost two weeks.  I thought I'd try for 5:45 but all I could muster was a 6:00.  Oh well, at least my foot isn't hurting.

Noon run, windy, partly sunny, temp 43'

Played basketball last night which works muscles I'm not use to using which left me a little stiff.  Didn't have much pep so I took it easy.

I wanted to be fresh for tomorrows longer run so I took it easy today.  After about a 1/2 mile of running I saw Cal coming down the path fast and I almost joined him but decided to stick with the original plan.

Morning run, Trans Jordan dump run, Temp. 30-35

I was hoping to feel a little more pep in the step and naturaly slip into some 7:30 miles for the 1st few miles but it wasn't there so I just hit some 8 min miles. At the half way point I was behing the 8 min. pace man by about 60 seconds. I had decided to do a 3 mile tempo run for miles 10-12 so I knew I'd pass the 8 min. guy easy. The 1st half of the run is slightly uphill and the last is slightly down. I was surpised to get a 6:00, 6:06, & 6:00 on the tempo run. Maybe next weeks SLC half marathon wont be a disaster.

Time 1:47:36, Mile avg. - 7:35
