morning - 4 Runway.  Walk with Twix and then first day of XC.  We did a new set of warm up drills and then I talked too much and we got our run in.  Have really been struggling with getting back into a decent sleep schedule since getting home, so I didn't get any more miles in before practice like I will want to do.  But that will come around.  Abs.  (Peg NOP 276.5)

morning - 4.5 Half and Half.  Walk with Twix and then practice.  Am feeling pretty sore from the lunge matrix.  Half road, half gras (unfortunately I have to keep my shoes on with the bad achilles).  Then running club after.  Abs.  (Ravenna 483.75)

morning - Turtle Fence.  Walk with Twix and abs.  Up into the desert up the Millcreek road just past the turle fence.  Ryno joined us today, so I was able to get a bit in with him.  (Peg blue34 251.5)

afternoon - 10min swim

PM - 5 Mayor's Loop.  Got together with Clyde and we had a good chat and a nice little run.  Starting back up running with the old crew once a week.  It's going to be nice to run with the guys again.  (Levitate 318.5)

morning - 4.5 Bella Vista.  Walk with Twix and abs.  Then just around DogTown a bit for practice.  It is going to be an interesting year.  I don't know what that means... but it will be interesting.  (Boston 489.25)

morning - 9.25 RV/New DM.  Short walk with Twix and then we ran 2xRV Loop. Dropped her off and went out to measure a new dirt mile for tempos this summer. After running into the boys as they had finished up their run, made a loop on the other side of Mav perfectly a mile on the second attempt. Not sure if we’ll use it (or for how long until it gets developed), but it’s not a bad little loop. (Peg green 499)

AM - 10 RV/NDM.  Short walk and a couple miles with Twix.  Then over to the New Dirt Mile for 10x1min tempo fartleks with the team.  Trying tempos this way to see if they can be a little more successful and develop a little stronger at them.  Abs.  (Peg Blue34 261.5)

AM - 7.75 Twix/Half and Half.  Abs and short walk with Twix.  Followed that up with a few miles with her.  Then a half road, half grass at practice.  Been trying to do my striders with the team, too.  Not a lot of speed on them for me, but at least it is something.  After was kids' club and then weights.

AM - 7.75 RV/DogPound.  Abs then a short walk and a couple miles with Twix.  For practice we went down DogPound and then connected to Mosquito Trail and up Sullivan and Hell Hole.  Some decent running from the team.  (Peg NOP 284.25)

afternoon - 25min swim.  Went to Quail and got some paddleboarding in and took the time to snag some open water swimming.  I enjoying swimming in the lake and ocean more than the pool, but I do have 1 big fear in each: in the ocean - sharks, of course.  I always feel like I am being watched.  In the lake - dead bodies.  I always think I'll find some dead body; probably 'cause the water isn't very clear. I dunno.

morning - 10.25 RV/City Wells.  Up later this morning after getting home late from SLC to pick up a car for my kids last night.  So it was warmer and my bathroom schedule was thrown off.  Both contributed to a tougher run.  But I actually felt a bit better energy-wise than the last couple days.  So some parts were pretty nice.  And of course, getting into the desert is never a bad thing.  Started with a short walk and just one lap of RV with Twix and then headed up City Wells (upper Grapevine).  Added on the upper well and then had a solid run back.  Biggest week since back in February before my injury, so that's a positive.  (Peg NOP 294.5)

AM - 7.75 Twix/Half and Half.  Abs and then a short walk and run with Twix.  She really isn't into running much lately, so we only go for about 2 miles or so.  At practice did a half and half and ran with some of the kids I don't run with too often.  Kids' Club after is always something - played some games with the 5-6th grade boys (some really speed in there and some bawl babies).  Weights after.  (Boston 497)

Took my younger girls camping. Thought I might get a little run in there, but there were a few other people around and I didn't want to leave them on their own. We did a lot of hiking Friday and Saturday, but didn't ended up getting a run in.

AM - 14 Twix/Sand Hill. Abs. Short walk and about 3 with Twix. Then dropped the car off to be available to pick up kids who ran out of time before they were back to the school and I ran to the elementary to meet the team. We ran up Sand Hill today. I ran with some of the middle crew girls and tried to help them out an bit and then finished up with the guys. Felt really good today and probably could have hit a very solid Sand Hill time, but there is a time for burning it up and a time for coaching (and my time for burning it up has mostly passed me by!).

morning - 7.75 Coral Canyon. Abs. Longer walk with Twix, but no run - I’m feeling a little run down. For practice we went from Heritage Park out into the Industrial (basically reverse DogTown 1/2) and back. Needed to add a few minutes with the Level 3s, but I felt way blah and just struggled in.

morning - 6.5 Fields. Short walk with Twix. Ry and I ran a loop in the Fields from the double churches. It’s fun running with her and seeing her progress. We talked about how just in her junior year we were trying to push her to get under 8min pace on runs and that was a big deal. Now she just runs with me (or us - the boys, yesterday) at 7-7:15 pace like normal. I think she’ll really enjoy her experience at UVU. Biggest week for me in a long time. (Glide 106.5)
