Sunny noon run, breezy, temp 70'

I ran on dirt path 1st half and paved path 2nd half.  I'm guessing the dirt path slows me down about 20 seconds per mile.  The muscles on the sides of my hips were a little sore due to to much pounding I'm guessing.  I'm trying to put in some mileage and still not get worn out for the race saturday.

Time 78:15, Mile Avg. - 7:50

Sunny noon run, no wind, temp 70'

Took it easy except one mile that I tried to run at what I thought may be a good 1/2 marathon pace.  I ran it in 6:15 which is probably to fast.

Morning run, low wind, temp 50'

My legs were tired so I was glad to take it easy.  It seems that when I'm running 40+ miles a week I have a hard time recovering for the next days run.

Time 47:30, Mile avg. - 7:55

Noon run, sunny, windy, temp 85'

Two days until race day.  I'll take tomorrow off.

My legs felt sluggish.  After about a mile they felt better but not like I would like them to feel for race day.  I attempted to run the second to last mile at 1/2 marathon pace.  I ran a 6:35 mile.  It felt about right.

Time 39:15, Mile Avg. - 7:43

Ogden half Marathon, sunny, low wind, Temp. 55-75  (YAHOO!! I did good!!)

This was my first race of the year and I was determined to see what kind of shape I was in and not take it easy.  I think I ran a pretty good race because the last couple of miles were difficult.  I haven't pushed it hard like that for a long time and I'd fogotten how hard it is at the end of the race.

Mile 1 - 6:09 (level),  

Mile 2 - 6:36 (uphill, mabey a bit too fast),  

Mile 3 - 6:26 (level, reduced effort a bit from previous up hill mile), 

Mile 4 - 6:14 (slight down hill), 

Mile 5 - 6:02 (heading down the canyon), 

Mile 6-8 - 6:19's Avg. (didn't see the mile signs, Need a GPS watch)

Mile 9 - 5:59 (4 miles to go and my legs were still ok so I picked up the pace)

Mile 10 - 5:48 (getting near the end of the canyon, feeling a little strained)

Mile 11 - 6:15 (wondering if I can hold the pace, out of the canyon, I passed someone and I don't want to let them pass me back up)

Mile 12 - 6:31 (course leveling out, very tired, managed to pass another runner)

Mile 13 - 6:22 (It felt like it took 10 minutes to do this mile, I was not used to the pain, I was suprised to get the time I did),

Final .1 - 0:46

Total time 1:22:11 -  Mile Avg. 6:16  -  9th overall,  -  1st in Age Div.
