0 - nothing today.  The morning did not want to find me awake extra early to go on a run before the races.

afternoon - 8.5 Sunrise/Hospital.  Ran out to another session of 20 second hills (8).  Then finished up the run by going the Hospital route with a detour up the Trail to Nowhere (which is torn to pieces by the floods - suprising that I haven't been on it since then, but it is reslly destroyed.  The power of nature is pretty impressive.)  (Ronin 487.25)

afternoon - 8 Parkway.  What a nice run.  I am feeling totally hideous in my running (form and such), but after awhile, that started to leave; plus the weather was awesome.  Still really just going through the motions of running though.  (Oregon 853.75)

afternoon - 8 DogPound/Tempo. Ran the DogPound in reverse for a warm. Then did a short progression tempo around the grass at school (which will be gone soon for a new building for the school - super bummed about that. It really seems that the only news related to school is bad news - very disheartening to be brought down all the time). Tempo started at Tinman and worked down a little - 5:59, :48, :37.

afternoon - 7.25 Boardwalk. Ran into DogTown and then dropped into Hell Hole and down the river trail. It was a nice run. Wish I would have had some buddies or some of the team there to liven up life. (Kinvara Green 249.75)

morning - 14 Navajo. Ran with Steven, Logan and Aaron. It was a nice run in a bit of a drizzle that made the dirt nice and compact. Actually handled the mileage fine enough. (VertK 386)

Week - could have done without it. Stuff around life seems to have me down a bit.

Goals for next week: kind of keep the same sort of thing - running decent in the afternoon and having a few quicker runs.

afternoon - 9.25 2xmile.  Decided to go home and run my workout, but on the way home the Jeep died - it is almost 25 years old I guess.  Hopefully not a huge deal.  So I ran over to my parents' to have my dad help tow it home.  Then went from there around the Parkway and into Sienna Hills to warm up.  Hit the Dirt Mile and did 2 miles of Tinman and started to get the legs moving.  Decided 2xmile at around 5:30 would be a good start.  Did a 5:25 and :24 with 3 min recovery.  Felt good, had to work a little which was good.  Cooled home and a mile with the dogs.  (Adios 246)

afternoon - 8 Hospital/Sunrise Hills.  Ran the Hospital from the bottom up and stopped off at Sunrise for a 20 sec hill workout.  It takes me 5 to get to the top; so I did 2 sets of those.  (Lyte33 186.75)

afternoon - 9.5 Boardwalk. Ran up the River Trail to the end of the trail by the dump. Just a nice early winter afternoon - a little chilly and beautiful by the river. (Kinvara white 353.5)

afternoon - 10.5 Sullivan Loop. For those following the continue saga of the Desert Rat - my Jeep Cherokee - I charged up the battery the other day and took it to work today. It began dying part way and I turned off the lights, ran every stop sign and never signaled and somehow got to school (but Al had to come pick up Pyper since I was attempting to take her). So after school I decided to try and start it up - it did with very limited juice. So I did the same dangerous driving techniques on the way home with much more traffic and attempting to stay on the back roads. Next step, new battery. Hopefully that helps. To the run... Ran a warm up fown Hell Hole and the. Started a tempo on the Sullivan Loop. Goal was 5 miles. Started at Tinman and worked down a bit from there. 5:59, :48, :42, :32, :42. Got a bit tired by the end, but it was good to push myself a bit. (Kinvara green 260.25)

afternoon - 9.25 GS/PL/Midd. Hadn't done this loop for awhile, and my leg hurt from spraining my ankle the other day, but it warmed up; so I decided to do it. The desert was super awesome, but I was so bummed - like every time I go up here - because more of the desert is getting plowed up. Now they have taken the bulldozers all the way to the Desert Reserve fence. Please, stop destroying the desert! The sand was super good from the rains this week. (Kinvara blue 144.5)

morning - 14.25 DC. Ran around Bloomington/Hills and the River Trail with Logan, Steven, Aaron and Haydo. Nice run and an okay pace (faster than if I'd have been by myself) while having a good convo with Hayden most of the run. Fun to hear his enthusiasm for his college running - wish I would have been that into it. (Kinvara white 367.75)

Another good building week. And I made it through the end of the quarter.

Goals for next week: keep hitting a few moderate workouts and bring paces a little quicker, enjoy the Christmas ?season and time with the family.

morning - 9 Dirt Mile / 60/60. Slept in and enjoyed an amazing morning. Watched a beautiful sunrise throw light across Pine Vally Mt. as it rose over Zion. I don't know that there are too many more amazing places to live than Southern Utah - too bad so many more people are thinking that as well. Warmed up on the Parkway and then a TM mile on the Dirt Mile to try and get the legs moving a bit. Worried me because I wasn't too quick and ready to run. But the workout went well. Did 10x60/60 at .18+ miles. Hit it on everyone as I was usually hitting .19 as the watch beeped. Felt pretty strong throughout and could have done 5 more without a whole lot of stress. Cooled home and a mile with the dogs. (Mana 680.5)

noon - 7 Highland. Enjoyed an awesome early afternoon run in the desert. Went up Highland via Grapevine and then ran the little trail there and back. Sun was out, so guns were out - or something like that! Ended with a session of BeastAndFeast - first time in awhile; may leave me a little sore tomorrow. (Free 967.95).

morning - 10.75 Sand Hill. Another amazing morning out in the desert. Did 10x20secs up the Sand Hill - it was an absolute beast. Got back and ran some with the dogs and Elin. (Ronin 499)

AM - 12 Sullivan loop. Kind of a conundrum today as I should get my tempo in this week, but don't want to do it up in SLC which means do it down here today. And although Monday and Tuesday weren't super hard, they did take a toll on an old guy. But I decided I would give it a shot anyway. Up a little earlier this morning and watched another amazing sunrise. Warmed down Hell Hole and started off. Wanted to get a little quicker than last time at first, but most importantly hold a little better at the end. Went 5:52, :54, :48, :35, :45. So a touch quicker at first, but then a little slower for the rest. I actually felt really good and thought I was going quicker, but I could tell the legs were just a little unresponsive. I'll survive though; glad I got it done. See you Friday - have a very merry Christmas. (Kinvara Blue 156.5)

I really just didn't feel like running today. Made for a pretty uneventful end to an uneventful week.

Decided to go sledding with the kiddos instead of running. Then drove home. Glad to leave the snow.

noon - 8.5 Parkway. Wow, could feel the lack of running and over-eating of junk food in me today. Ran in my new Pegasus 31's. Haven't ran in that much show in many ears, but hopefully the higher heel can help my achilles heal up. And they actually don't weigh too much or feel too bulky either. Seriously, Nikes... What the crap! Tried a Tinman around the Dirt Mile and could tell that not much was happening today. Hopefully, though, it gets some of the junk out so I can run some miles tomorrow. (Peg 8.5)

afternoon - 8 Parkway/Dirt Mile. Well at least I got out today; that is a little victory. Went up to the Dirt Mile again to test if I am ready for some sort of workout. Did 1.5 at Tinman and did it fine and a bit quicker (5:51). So that is good, but I still feel like junk. The problem - beside slacking on the runs - has been that I haven't been taking care of myself after running like rolling and yoga and such. Ended with a couple miles with the dogs and did my post-run stuff. (adios 255)
