Up onto the trails by Silver Reef. Dropped onto Red Cliff East down to the campground for the first time - it was a very pretty trail. Tons of water in Leeds&#39; Creek and a strong push back down White Reef. Got a warning to pay for parking at the trailhead, so I guess I won&#39;t park there any more. It just bugs that the gov wants $5 to park on a gravel/dirt parking lot that has a pit toilet. I&#39;m okay with paying for the things I use or paying taxes to pay for the things I use, but not really both (especially to park in the dirt).

Dropped off the car and ran with Twix back home and then over to practice. Added a little before heading up into the desert and then ran a decent Sand Hill. Many kids challenged themselves to tackle a huge obstacle today. Proud of them.

Felt tired and it seemed like most of the boys did, too (but the girls seemed to be running well). Got home and did a mile with Elin. (Glide 116.75)</p> Wed, 10 Jul 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Jul 09, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-09-2019.html <p>AM - 6.5 RV/Half and Half.

Hit the DI loop and then ran home with Carson. It seemed so hot, but was only 99.

Ran from the parked car to practice and up the Sand Hill.

Finished off the week running with Ry and Py up to Garden City. They had a good week of runninng. (Peg Blue34 306.5)</p> Sat, 06 Jul 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Jul 05, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-05-2019.html <p>AM - 9 Bear Lake. Did the same&#39;ish loops as yesterday, but through a little twist into it for some variety. Haven&#39;t felt that great up here, but the paces have been okay. (Peg NOP 327.5)</p> Fri, 05 Jul 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Jul 04, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-07-04-2019.html <p>AM - 9 Bear Lake. Ran around the Sweetwater area with a couple loops.

Short walk then ran with Ry and Py at Sugarhouse. Some domo yelled out, &ldquo;moratorium.&rdquo; And I&rsquo;m like, &ldquo;I&rsquo;m their&nbsp;dad, idiot.&rdquo; Plus one&rsquo;s in college now, so chill. I really appreciate that everyone has to jump into everyone else&rsquo;s business.

Started out with a short walk with Twix and then we ran about 3.5. Dropped her off and ran some more. Wanted to get a little tempo in, so I went up to the NDM. Didn&rsquo;t feel great though and wanted to be done after one, but convinced myself to push another lap. 6:30 and 6:20. Then just ran around Sienna Hills exploring the new neighborhoods. (Levitate 353.25)</p> Mon, 01 Jul 2019 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 29, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-29-2019.html <p>morning - 6.5 Fields. Short walk with Twix. Ry and I ran a loop in the Fields from the double churches. It&rsquo;s fun running with her and seeing her progress. We talked about how just in her junior year we were trying to push her to get under 8min pace on runs and that was a big deal. Now she just runs with me (or us - the boys, yesterday) at 7-7:15 pace like normal. I think she&rsquo;ll really enjoy her experience at UVU. Biggest week for me in a long time. (Glide 106.5)</p> Sat, 29 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 28, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-28-2019.html <p>morning - 7.75 Coral Canyon. Abs.&nbsp;Longer walk with Twix, but no run - I&rsquo;m feeling a little run down. For practice we went from Heritage Park out into the Industrial (basically reverse DogTown 1/2) and back. Needed to add a few minutes with the Level 3s, but I felt way blah and just struggled in. (Peg Blue34 290.5)</p> Fri, 28 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 27, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-27-2019.html <p>AM - 9.25 NDM. Abs and short walk and run with Twix as I set up cones on the New Dirt Mile. Then some tempo fartleks for practice. Felt good, but set off to some dry-heaving after finishing. (Ravenna 493)</p> <p>afternoon - 2 DI. Weights and afternoon run. (Ravenna 495)</p> <p>PM - 5 Mayor&rsquo;s Loop. Logan and I. Sure is nice temps this summer; I&rsquo;m sure it will change soon. (Glide 100)</p> Thu, 27 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 26, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-26-2019.html <p>AM - 12.5 RV/Shinobe. Abs and the usual amount of time for a short walk and a couple miles with Twix. Switched up the tempo with an easy run for practice and we headed down into the fields. Ran home and added a loop on the Dirt Mile Killer to snag back my Strava segment. (Glide 95)</p> Wed, 26 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 25, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-25-2019.html <p>AM - 6.5 Twix/Half and Half. Abs and short walk and run with the dog. Road and grass for practice.&nbsp;</p> <p>afternoon - 2 DI. Weights and then 15min run as we start off doubling a little. (Levitate 342)</p> Tue, 25 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 24, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-24-2019.html <p>AM - 14 Twix/Sand Hill. Abs. Short walk and about 3 with Twix. Then dropped the car off to be available to pick up kids who ran out of time before they were back to the school and I ran to the elementary to meet the team. We ran up Sand Hill today. I ran with some of the middle crew girls and tried to help them out an bit and then finished up with the guys. Felt really good today and probably could have hit a very solid Sand Hill time, but there is a time for burning it up and a time for coaching (and my time for burning it up has mostly passed me by!).

Thought I might get a little run in there, but there were a few other people around and I didn&#39;t want to leave them on their own. We did a lot of hiking Friday and Saturday, but didn&#39;t ended up getting a run in.</p> Sat, 22 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 21, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2019.html <p>AM - 9.75 Twix/Mayor&#39;s Loop. Abs and a short walk and run with Twix. Then around the Mayor&#39;s Loop in reverse with the team and added a bit up toward the golf course. Finished up with some striders.</p> Fri, 21 Jun 2019 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 20, 2019 http://holt.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2019.html <p>AM - 8.25 RV/Hell Hole. Abs, short walk, and RV loop with Twix.
