Morning run, temp 50'

Great morning for running.  I decided to do a couple of quick quarters on down sloping sections a mile apart.  I ran a 68 and a 69.  First time I've got two quarters under 70 this year.  It feels like I'm going very fast at 68.  In my younger days I ran a 52.  My legs won't even think about that kind of speed. 

Time 53:15,  Mile avg. - 7:37

Morning run on a treadmill at the Little America hotel.

I took Taunia there for our 20th Anniversary.  After 20 years I'm still very happy with the choice I made.  Monday evening we ate at the Roof reastaurant on the top floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Buildiing.  It was a Buffet and wonderful.  I ate alot.  We watched the sunset as the sun set down over the Temple as we ate and ate.

In the morning I jogged 2.7 miles in my new running tank top Taunia got me while Taunia biked and jogged. Then we did the dumb thing of eating at the Little America buffet breakfast.  Again the food was wonderful and I ate way to much.  Not good to be bulking up just before the WBR.

Afternoon, cloudy, very very windy, temp. 60'

I still felt full even though I hadn't eaten for 6 hours.  My stomach felt a little funny the first two miles but then it gave in and let me run.

Miles 7.45,  Mile avg. - 7:31

Morning run, temp. 45'

This was not one of the mornings that I was excited to get out of bed and run.  I thought I may 'old man' the entire run but after I got out and going I decided to throw in a couple of quarters.  I did them in 72 and 69.

Distance 7.0 miles,  Time 54:00,  Mile avg. - 7:43

Nice day for a run.  My legs are not use to 50 mile weeks.  They feel just a little sore or tired.

Noon run, sunny, temp. 72'

I decided to take it really easy in hopes of having a good run tomorrow.  After about 3 miles my right ankle on the outside started aching.  My bodies natural reaction was to make my knee buckle to take the presure off my ankle.  Every once in a while it must have looked like I was retarded.  Hopefully, I'm not.

Morning run, sunny, temp 55-59

I was feeling pretty good this morning but started off on my old man pace. After a few miles I decided I wasn't an old man and I wanted to run faster. I ran an out and back with the 1st five miles up hill slope and then back down. On the 1st 3 back down I decided to give the legs a test. I averaged 6:01 miles for the 3 miles, then I glady mellowed out to 7:00 minute miles.

My 2nd leg of the WBR is 8.5 miles with the 1st mile up hill and the next 7.5 steep down. The race calculator predicted me to do it in 5:59 average. After doing todays 3 mile tempo run at 6:01 I think it will be difficult to do it, but I'm gonna try.

Time 70:50, Mile avg - 6:59
