AM - 50 Az. Strip.  Long run with Logan.  At times I felt great... and then at others I wondered if I would finish - more when I have time.  (Later)  Did this run April 10, 2009.  At the end of that entry I said I may never do this again - yet... here I am.  It is funny how the mind works like this.  Today the mind wasn't so much the issue; it was the body.  It helped a lot to have Logan out there trudging along with me (although I feel bad because I kept us from breaking 7:00 - I was just too spent at the end.  I think mostly the reason for this was this time we ran earlier in the year and before I had more long runs under my belt.).  We switched the order of the run a little and did the Quail section first this time, which was nice to get done - especially as it ended up being a warm day.  But the wind was ripping right at us for the big climb.  The Mokiac section went real well and there was some snow and mud up top that made it fun.  But by the end of it I was starting to get worn down so I knew that Seegmiller was going to be tough.  And it was.  I was tired the whole time - the climb, the rollers on top, the way back, all of it.  I was never so happy to have a run finished in my life.  (NB 110 70).

morning - 5.5 home.  Pretty dang spent today.  Thought I might be able to run the workout with the girls today, but I was lucky to even be able to run!  Ran home from practice.  (Connect 5.5)

morning - 10 Dimple Dell.  Up in SLC, so I ran at one of my fav places.  But I was a bit spent, so the run was just getting some mileage in and time on the feet.  Nonetheless, still able to enjoy the trails.  (NB 110 80)

AM - 7 Wasatch Dr.  Not a lot of time for a run today.  Had to get up early and get in as much as I could before needing to leave to Provo by 6:30 for Rylee's state swim meet.  She did awesome: made finals in both her events with huge PR's and took 16th in 100 Free and 7th in 100 Breast.  Then drove home into the wee hours of the night.  (Connect 12.5)

AM - 10 Treadmill.  First time on the tready in some time, but that is what life required.  Didn't even want to get up this morning, but Elin was up screaming as usual.  So that dragged me out of bed and onto the treadmill while she laid on the couch.  Luckily I did get up though because the air show took all day and there was no way I could have run later - but it sure was awesome to see.  (Rocket 313.25)

Week was okay with the long run.  But it wiped me out way more than expected.  I would like to have had more mileage earlier in the week when I had time, but there was just no way the body (and maybe the mind) could have done it.  But hip held up great through the long run.

Goals for next week: PV Invite this coming week so really just survive.  I will try and get some decent mileage in at the beginning of the week if possible as the end of the week will be burdensome.
