morning - 13 Sego Lily.  Not quite as cold this morning as Sat.  Did a double Sego with a little variation from the other day.  Then Twix and I grabbed Ry and we did 30 more minutes for her run in a few days with Christmas, getting sick and then the weekend.  Finishing up Matt Fitzgerald's How Bad Do You Want It? that Rylee got for Christmas.  Inspired by Vis, I really think the next frontier of running will be reached by an understanding of the body AND MIND and how they interrelate.  (Peg Blue 144)

morning - 9.75 Twix/Chuckwalla. Took the dog around a bit, then over to the trail with the team. The rigors of the trail really wasn't good on my left knee. It is slowly improving (everything said 2-4 weeks, so I guess it is about right), but this wasn't too good for it. (Peg 710.5)

morning - 9.5 North Desert. Didn't want to do the workout I probably should have. My knee hurt a lot from yesterday's trail and I just didn't feel like it. So just kinda looped into the desert and ran a cool little loop I have up there a few times. Too bad it will all be gone in a few years. Have I ever mentioned that I really don't like people. (Pace 230.25)

Ended the year with the fewest miles since I started fully blogging. (In 2006, most of my blogging was done at the end of the year off sporadic paper records.). I am not really too bummed by it - I am surrounded on the mileage board by the likes of Riley Cook, Jake Krong, and Paul Peterson. Three dudes that I have the upmost respect for and wouldn't mind being lumped in with. I didn't really love my running this year. Most of that was due to the dissolving of The Circle of Trust. I just never really enjoyed training and a lot of running seemed like a grind. And I love this life too much for it to be a grind, so my main response was to just cut back and let whatever happen happen. As such I didn't run nearly as much. Did have some good stuff: really enjoyed XC season this year (excepting the absolute bull that happened at State to the girls, but even that was countered with Hell Raiser's title), it has been fun coaching a great group of kids including my own daughter, got to run with James a touch more, and I'll never forget the awesome adventure that was Steve, Logan and my's Virgin Rim Trail Run (that thing was what running and life is all about - just getting out there and doing something amazing and crazy). Thanks for letting me have more chances to grow 2015 - peace out.

morning - 8 City Wells. Pretty blah today. Twix and I headed up into the desert above town. Even though this is off road, it really is pretty much a two-track and so it doesn't put pressure on my knee. Lots of people out today, hiking, biking, riding horses. Saw Ben Jarvis from old days CV out hiking with his fam. Stopped and just enjoyed the view a couple times. (Peg black 454.25)

As we start out a new year, I've often listed a few things about my running I would like to do for the coming year. I'm not too sure what I would list for this year. More and more, I think I would like the challenge of getting fast again - some shorter stuff like 5K's-1/2's. Even see if I could run a faster mile at the Panther Relays. So we'll see. It is good to have some direction, something to give you a little push or pull if needed; bu I am not sure what that is for me right now. Hmmm...

morning - 10.5 Junction. Cool sunrise. Glad I dragged out of bed to see it. Wasn't really tired, just kinda enjoying laying around. But that does make it hard to go running later. Big milage for Twix this week. (Riders 514.25)

Week was okay. Hopefully I cam kinda snap outta my funk next week.

Goals for next week: school will get going again. As much as I would rather just chill with life, I do much better with a schedule.
