AM - 7.15 GreenSprings. It is so easy to stay in bed, and so much harder to get out of bed, when you have let yourself fall into that - so I am struggling to break back through. Temps still pretty darn nice for January at 5:30 in the morning. (Cumulus red 446.85)

afternoon - 10.4 5xmiles on cemetery loop. Not the best set of repeats. I think I may move this workout to Tuesdays. I've noticed that I have often been lethargic and not to "in to it" on Monday's. A bit chilly and windy out which had some play on the run, but not as much as my tight legs and struggle to push. 1-5:30 not bad considering I felt way tight and the wind was holding me back on the downhill section where I usually gain some time. Family drove by during 1 minute recovery jog, so I welcomed the opportunity to stop and talk to them, but the longer break kind of threw me off. 2-5:31 Kept a decent effort on this - again the wind. 3-5:37 A big slip on time here, but most of it was caused by a Pit Bull that came out of a house after me (lucky he didn't eat me!) but I did stop to clap and yell at him and my watch kept going, so maybe about a 5 second loss. 4-5:42 Here's where it got ugly. From this point on the legs felt like the end of a race. 5-5:40 I thought about not running this one, but decided that wouldn't do me much good, so I gave it as strong a push as I could. Then finished by running around Washington a bit as a cool down. (Precision 228.65)

AM - 5 Washington Loop. I tried to stay in bed, but couldn't let myself. Kind of cooled off again last night. (Cumulus red 451.85)

afternoon - 11.75 Shnobe Kibe.  Started off with a few of the boys and as they went up Staheli's Hill, I extended around the mountain.  Only got chased by a few dogs - some friendly, others foes.  Back at PVHS I tried to start up the Jeep (it wouldn't), did my abs workout quickly as to not cool off too much and then ran the 2.75 home.  (Stratus 212.2) 

Total Distance

afternoon - 14 River Trail into Bloomington Hills and back.  Started off with Kimzey and Austin.  Wind was blowing hard against us.  Decided to take a detour off my normal route and extend a little.  Couldn't loop around the 1/2 course because it still has a giant hole in the trail and tractors all around it, so I just made it an out and back.  Nothing too quick as my hips still had a little soreness and weakness in it.  (Cumulus silver 352.95)

evening - 3 Treadmill @1%.  Put the kids to bed and grabbed a few extra to try and work my kinks out a bit.  Didn't really feel like going any more than this though.  Now I'll just run once a day until the 1/2.  (Cumulus orange 427.45)

Total Distance

evening - 10.8 Club run.  The normal club run route is going to be the one we have done the last two/three weeks, up onto Parkway Trail, under to Ball Fields, down by Snow Canyon HS, then extended down to the Golf Course and back up toward Sunset and then on the trail back to the store.  Today I doubled back looking for Steve, Allen, and Mike, but they headed out up Sunset.  Good run with a enjoyably easy start with a good social hour and then some pickup in a few place toward 6:20-6:40 miles.  (Cumulus Silver 363.75)

Total Distance

afternoon - 12.6 Junction and over top of Coral Canyon down Highland. Solid run. Did 4 x 100 barefoot grass striders on the Coral Canyon Elem. grass.  The effort was good and for three miles down Highland and back toward home I really pushed it - using the hills I got 6:10, 5:27, 5:50. (Precision 241.25)

morning - 1/2 course and extended up trail.  Club run with a lot of people starting.  Ran the first 7 with James and then by myself around the loop as Steve took off.  I thought I was really poking 'cause he was pulling away so easy, but I still was hitting a few around 6:30.  Then we took it pretty easy back up the trail.  Finally Mike and I finished with a couple up the trail and back.  (Stratus 229.4)
