Green Valley loop from my house into Green Valley (bottom way, like this much better) and around. Felt great, first time I didn't walk in a run this long - not even one step! I remember this being a very positive experience. Watch says 8:13 average.

Wanted to get one last long run in before the marathon. I felt horrible. Had to walk, had to cut it short.

Don't remember the rest of the week up to the Swiss Days. I think I took it pretty easy though. Mostly just 3 and 4 mile recovery runs.

2.25 warm up for the Swiss Days 5k

3 - mile splits were 5:38,5:31,5:13, and then :27 for the .1 Run was good. It had been a very long time since I had run a 5K. So I wasn't used to the speed. A high school kid beat me (that's kind of sad). But I felt okay about it. Came in 2nd.

10.5 - ran with club and Logan down last 10.5 of the marathon course. Felt good.

First log!

9 miles

ran 3 mile runs 3 times (continueously) with various groups of my team members.

run - PVHS to Artic Circle and back x 3

It gets tedious running the same run three times in a row, but it is nice to get out with the kids.

On treadmill at 6:31 pace. Have been working on a little of downhill training for the last few weeks to get ready for St. George.

The 6:30 pace is pretty comfortable right now.

3 miles 3 times with team again. run - PVHS to Artic Circle and back x 3

same run as Monday. But it was the last set of morning runs for the x-country season, so I was glad to be there running with the various groups of kids.

2 mile warm up into Green Springs at just under 7 min/mile

Then pushed for 4 miles at 5:55 average. Felt labored at first only hitting 6:15, then it started to really flow and I even toned it down as to not overdo it. Easy last mile around 7:45 to finish up.

planned on running with the SGRunClub on the marathon course but slept in after staying up late with sick daughter.

So I tried to run something with a similar downhil as SGMar

Ran up turkey farm road - felt good and warmed up with 6:30, 6:45, and 6:30 then backed off a bit as I ran up to the water tank 7:30 and 7:50. Ran back in 6:05, 6:10, 6:08, 6:22 then eased in at 7:30.

Felt pretty good on way up but really strained for 6's on way back.

Ready to relax for marathon week.
