AM - 8.5 Twix/Sunrise.  Pretty slow and tired this morning.  Really worn down; like the weekend never happened.  (Peg 71)

afternoon - 9.5 1600's.  Warmed up DI and then got into some 1600's.  Did the first two with the boys at 5:19 and 5:18.  Then the girls asked for a little help and we did those ones in 6:16 and 6:15.  Then I jumped in with Paul as he finished up his last 1000 - I did the last 600 with him and that was a good solid push.  Finished up with 2x300 as quick as I could go, which wasn't too quick - 46 and 47.  Cooled for a bit and hit the weight room.  I only benched because my hamstring was very tight throughout the whole workout but especially as I finished.  Elipitical for 15 minutes.  (Adios 278)

afternoon - 7.5 City Creek.  I wasn't feeling well this morning and used the extra sleep.  I guess I have just a touch of cold - sore throat, tired, that kind of stuff.  Felt a little better this afternoon, so I decided to run with the team.  We had a nice run on the City Creek Trail over by Red Hills Golf Course.  I enjoy that trail; it is just kind of unique being tucked up by the golf course.  Skipped out on BeastAndFeast to try and protect the achilles a bit.  (NB 101 712.25)

AM - 8.5 Twix/Sunrise.  Slept well last night and it was needed.  The dog did okay this morning; one day she will grow up and not be so annoying.  Still working on the right achilles.  (Peg 79.5)

afternoon - 8 track. Warmed up with DI and then did a 20 min tempo on the track - hit just past the 14th lap, so 3.5 miles for a 5:43 ave. Sounds hideous to some, but I actually don't mind it with the team and it is really helping them learn how to pace correctly and run together more effectively. Cooled a bit. Finished with a little bit of weights and 10 min elliptical. Why can't I remember the shoes I wore just yesterday?

afternoon - 9 Fields. Another morning off. This time because Elin was up sick at about 4, so I helped her out and stayed at home while Al ran. Afternoon run was a good easy run through the Fields via the new bridge. Ended with 8xbarefoot striders (first barefooting of the year for me). (barefoot '15 1)(Kinvara green 290.75)

AM - 8 PV/Sunrise. Took the dog just a little and then ran to practice since (surprise, surprise) the Jeep is down again - hole in a radiator hose the other day. Luckily that isn't a big deal, just need time to go get one and replace it. Then of course, practice. (Peg 87.5)

afternoon - 7.5 Old Man Hills. Ran over to Old Mans and ran a variety of hills with different groups of guys and girls. I didn't kill anything as I wanted to have a little better tempo tomorrow than last week. (F50 773.25)

morning - 15 Sullivan's. Took Twix around the extended Dirt Mile 3x for 4 miles and then headed down to the river trails. Decided to push just a touch before the tempo just to add a little something to it. So went 6:40 for a mile and then 6:20 for a half to kind of progress into the workout. Tempo went much better today than last week. Finally getting into some kind of shape and I think last week I had the beginnings of that sickness that kept me down a little at the beginning of the week and spread through most of the fam. Went 5:48, :39 and felt very good. The third was 6:04 and was a good push up the Dam hill, in fact e first half before the hill I was only 6:02 ave - even though I felt like I was pushing pretty good. 4th was 5:53 with a good finish of the hill and solid on top. Then 5:37 and :44 to end. A bit of an up-canyon river wind on those last two - have noticed that the last two weeks; maybe that is just how it blows this time of year. (Mana 706)

Decent week for missing a couple mornings. Was happy to see a little progress.

Goals for next week: keep progressing with stuff and work on my attitude about life.
