Life got pretty crazy the rest of this week.  Causes you to pause and just reflect on life.  Hopefully you can remember the good times and push through the tough times.

AM - long walk with the dog.

afternoon - 9 Parkway.  Ran home from school.  Maura joined me and we had a good catch.  It's been good having her working with the girls.  (Peg blue34 48.5)

AM - 3.75 Twix.  Abs and then the short walk with Twix and her loop.  A bit tight and the achilles really ached from being stretched out a bit yesterday.  (Levitate 152.75)

afternoon - 4.75 Highland.  Parked at the roundabout on my way home from school after weights and just ran from there.  Although I felt so tight and sucky in both achilles, it was a beautiful day for a run out in the dirt.  (Ravenna 392.25)

AM - 3.75 Twix.  Abs and short walk.  Then up on the Runway with Twix.  Was pretty dark up there with no moon.  Unfortunately, I bet it will be less than a year that the whole place will be developed.  (Levitate 156.5)

afternoon - 4.75 home.  HIIT workout with a handful of the team and then ran home.  Feeling a bit sore and worn, so I took it fairly easy on the pace and distance.  (Peg Purple 355.75)

afternoon - 8.75 ND.  Weights and then ran home through the North Desert.  Slowly working out some of the tightness and feeling like kind of a runner.  (Peg NOP 167)

AM - abs and long walk with Twix.

afternoon - 7.5 Mustang Pass. Was so looking forward to yoga this afternoon. Then a parent came and we didn’t finish our convo until just as the team was finishing up. Caught a ride up GS and then ran Mustang to home. The trail was in pretty good condition. The deer are definitely wintering in the hollow and the pass; there were tracks everywhere. Lots of coyote scat as well. (Peg green 451.5)

morning - 13.25 Junction. A couple with Twix after a short walk. Then out to the Junction and through Coral Canyon. Not a great run. Felt way tired the whole time, really struggled on the hills, and never really got a decent pace going. A struggle, but at least I got a longer run in. (Peg blue34 61.75)

AM - 4 Twix. Abs and short walk with Twix. Then a decent morning run with her. (Levitate 164.25)

afternoon - 7 AC/home. Practice is back on!  Getting practice going to try and help get everyone establishing some habits before the break. 30mins out to Starbucks. Then a few of the supers joined me for some more. Carson joined me all the way home. I’m still feeling a bit beat and was working hard to stay with him and talk!  (Peg NOP 174)

AM - 5.5 Parkway.  Abs.  Short walk with Twix and then we went up around the Parkway.  (Levitate 169.75)

afternoon - 5 DogPound.  Team run on the Dog Pound loop with striders after.  Joined in for striders for the first time in many months.  They felt okay.  After we did the HIIT workout - a burner like always. (Peg green 459.5)

morning - 8.5 City Wells.  Long walk with Twix and then dropped her off and headed into the desert.  Ran into Joe Furse as he was coming off Dino Tracks.  Talked for a little - he lives in Brio, so we'll have to hook up for some runs.  Not a spectacular run for pace, but a nice run nonetheless.  Achilles is feeling better than last week.  (Peg purple 364.25)

afternoon - 3.5 Twix.  Abs and then Twix and I went around King's Row and up the Turf Farm.  Did my 6xstriders there.  Felt good.  Less fatigue than this morning and not much extra pain the right achilles.  Ended with the HIIT workout - it's a beast.  (Levitate 177.25)

morning - 8.75 Twix/Chuckawalla.  Short walk with Twix and a few miles.  Then met up with Nick and Carson to run Chuckawalla.  Those are two great guys.  Very blessed that I have had the opportunity to be around such great people throughout my life.  Yoga and abs.  (Peg NOP 182.75)

morning - 15 Parkway/Junction.  Short walk with Twix and then took her on a shortened version of the Parkway.  Dropped her off after finishing a quick push through my neighborhood to grab a Strava record.  Then out to the Junction and back through Coral Canyon.  Goals wer to get a long run in and have a few pushes in.  Did both.  Pushed hard'ish down King's Row, through Coral Canyon and back up King's Row.  Just joined up on Strava yesterday, because... why not?  And saw that all these dudes have records that I should have, but my watch only loaded back 60 days not the 60 years it would have needed to record some fast stuff.  So I had to get the segment that runs right in front of my house.  Pleased with today's effort.  I have a long way to go to get under 1:18 in a half though.  Maybe 1:20 might be more realistic.  (Peg blue34 76.75)

morning - 9.75 Twix/Parkway.  Short walk with Twix and then just kind of a random run around DogTown picking off some more Strava segments (I'm not really being a segment hunter, but it is kind of fun to go grab a few - gets the body moving).  Then dropped her off and went out on the Parkway.  If I wouldn't have stopped to grab a quarter that wasn't, I would have knocked off Evan on the Parkway segment, too.  (Levitate 187)

afternoon - 6.5 Sullivan Loop.  Drove over to Hell Hole and then ran the loop.  Wore some old Pegs that apparently I've retired, so I need to put them away and not wear them again.  I could feel that they were pretty worn out.  Kept the pace easy throughout and just enjoyed working out the kinks.  Abs.  (Peg grey)

morning - 9.25 Sego Lily. A decent amount of snow last night messed with the run this morning. Did a smaller clockwise loop of Sego with Twix (after a short walk). Achilles was super tight and put up a fight for awhile. Then dropped off the dog and did the full loop counter. Abs and some HIIT after. (Peg blue34 86)

morning - 8 Dimple Dell.  Short walk with Twix and then into Dimple Dell.  Just stayed up on the North Rim trail with the Overlook loop added in.  There was a lot of snow and the pace was slow and crappy.  Thought about cross country skiing - I think that would be a fun challenge.  Abs.  (Peg blue34 100.25)

morning - 6.25 Sego Lily.  Short walk with Twix and then a slow and slick run around Sego Lily in clockwise direction with an extension up Mt. Jordan to the park first.  Glad to be leaving the frozen north.  It was very cold (15 degrees).  Abs.  (Peg blue34 92.25)

morning - 14.25 Twix/Prospector.  A couple with with Twix after a short walk.  Then out on Prospector.  Pretty crappy run.  Felt way tired and just didn't want to be doing it.  But I did, and on a day like this I guess that is a win.  Ready to get back into a schedule with the team.  (Peg NOP 197)

morning - 8 Highland.  Short walk with Twix and then we went up onto Highland and ran the trail up there twice.  There was a little skiff of snow that just made for a beautiful scene and great running.  I had a much better attitude and felt pretty good.  Should lead to a good run tomorrow - going to do the Red Cliffs Reserve Traverse from Leeds to Ivins; fun stuff.  Abs after.  (Adios)
