morning - 12 on Green Springs/PowerL/WaterT extended. Just took it easy. Left calf was very tight and I had to stop and stretch it a bit.  (landreth)

Total Distance

morning - 9x800's.  Ran 3 miles to the track then got into 8's on the track.  Hoped I would see a little better performance on the 8's on the track then the miles on the track the other week.  1-2:32, started off well and am thinking it should go well; 2-2:35 let it slip a little but realized what splits I needed to hit (just a little quicker 1st and 2nd 200's; 3- 2:32, brought it back down about where I want to be (have been doing 2:30 on treadmill); 4-2:33, felt pretty strong until this one, now I realize its the second half of the workout that is really the workout; 5-2:31, pushing hard to make sure I am not falling off; 6-2:31, again hitting well; 7-2:35, lost my concentration on the 2nd 200 (about 42) and subsequently lost my time; 8-2:37, a pretty pathetic one, I was straining and let it get the best of me; 9-2:31 as a punishment for the two poor repeats at the end, I made myself earn the right to leave the track by doing another one, Started strong and just held on, then got a good push on the last 100 to turn in a good time.  Equal recovery jog between reps. (400 meters).  Then 3 miles home after practice.  (Cumulus)

morning - 13 on River Run from home.  Tried to keep it all under 7.  Wasn't always successful, but the idea helped me keep running harder than I would have otherwise.  Had to do 11th Ward extension plus a bit more in my neighborhood to make the full 13.  Next time I will do extension at first and last.  I think I will use this as a base timing run during the summer (the middle 6 miles or something like that).  (Glycerin)

Total Distance

morning - 8 on Millcreek Trail up to Powerline turn off. Took it real easy and relaxed, especially on the way up - nearly 32 minutes. 28 minutes on the way back. Ave. 7:27.  (Glycerin)

afternoon - 9.6 club run from store and Santa Clara Cemetery Loop.  Overall ave. was 6:49.  Just about where I wanted it to be, but a little quick at first.  Good running with Clyde again, he always pushes me. (Glycerin)

AM - Green Valley run - changed course by going on River Trail instead of run and then when I went under the freeway in Washington I went on down to Telegraph and up to Cottonmill East and up to home.  I thought this would get me 25, but it didn't and I didn't have the legs to get it to 25.

I am a bit ashamed to write about this run because it was so bad.  But I guess we learn a lot from the poor runs too.  So here are the depressing statistics: miles 1-4 down to the river trail 7:04, 6:54,7:16,6:56 - not bad about where they should be; miles 5 and 6 on dirt connection to trail and washed out section of trail too dark to see footing so it slowed me down 7:24,7:23; Miles 7-14.25 across St. George and up Valley View 7:24,7:13,7:15,7:23,7:34,7:38,7:56,8:07, and 7:50 pace - pretty crappy on the flat and up Valley View, I wasn't into it mentally, physically, of with any heart - a very bad combination, stopped at the gas station at the top of VV for a little break and decided I would get back into with a better attitude;  Miles14.25-16.75 up Skyline 8:28,8:05, and 9:08 pace - things went from bad to worse;  Miles 16.75-24 6:57,6:46,7:13,7:16,7:51,7:32,8:28, and 9:04 pace - tried to hit the last section at marathon like I am supposed to, but it wasn't there.  Even when I was pushing the best I could do was where my whole run should have been. (Glycerin)

Don't be too harsh with your comments, I am in a very fragile state right now.  It is just frustrating when things won't work they way you want.  Oh well... I get up and try to do better tomorrow.

Water at 5,9,13... Ultima Replenisher at 7,11,15... Gu at about 17.

morning - felt sick most of the day yesterday and last night. Then this morning, I just still felt off and decided not to run. Later in the day, around 11 I felt a bit better so I went for a jog. 6.4 on Dino Track Trail. Took it very slow and easy, stomach still turning a bit. but I made it through it. (Glycerin)

 Hit goals for the week pretty good.  Being sick kept me from hitting 90 like I wanted. 

goals for next week:  try to recover a little.  Run whatever I can, I have our track invite Fri and Sat which makes it very hard to run - so whatever I get will be good.
