Well, I manged 7 miles today even if they were at less than full power let's say. But my calf is telling me there will be a price tomorrow. Seeing this, I will take tomorrow off and go for launch again on Monday. On an interesting note, I saw a black stallion in a corral walking alongside two other horses. He took notice and neighed as I went by. What an awesome creature I thought to myself. One of these days I hope I'll be able to have one when I retire, but at the rate I'm going it will have to be when I'm 90 or so! Dark Horse out....

AM-Monday morning workout with my group today. Easy two mile warm up and then a step down workout at 5k effort.  The workout I had planned was a 1600m, 800m, 400m, then 4x200m.  Unfortunately we ran out of time and had to cut out the 200s which really is the crux of the workout after coming at the end of the longer reps.  We need to get there earlier I think so we will meet at 5:45 on the dot.   4 miles total for my run.

AM-5 miles easy with 1 mile pickup at the end around 5:32/mile.  Ran over a nail on horse trail because some idiot thought it would be a good idea to tear a treehouse down and then leave pieces of lumber around with nails in it.  I am so mad, now I have to go sit in the insta-care for an hour and lay down a co-pay for a tetanus shot. Could be worse I guess. I don't understand why I have been so accident prone lately.  Dark Horse out.

AM-7 miles, Wanted to go more but both my foot and calf didn't want to cooperate for some reason. Especially my calf as it felt tighter than a violin string and even seized up a couple of times. UGH!!!  Try again tomorrow.  Dark Horse out.

Steady state run on the Draper parkway ascension course. Some rolling hills with 2x 20 minutes at marathon pace effort. 80-90% mhr. Everything went really well today for a change with only some residual tightness at the end, mainly in my calf. Last .5 mile in 2:34. Felt exceptionally strong during the workout. Man... I wish every day went like this!

13 miles total with form drills and a few stretches. Dark Horse out..

AM-Went out this morning with my group and had a road and hill circuit for strength and turnover with repeats of 2 min on 2min off. I'm going to have them meet once a month to do this kind of workout and next time will be longer. After thinking about it, I want to teach them to run up hill a certain way and after each hill I mainly want to see how it translates on the flat neuromuscular wise. I wonder if the pattern and effort on the hill will stay in place on the flat.  Concentrating on making a tighter arc on the stride cycle with more knee lift and faster turnover all the while not trying to fight the hill so much. Next week will be a series of 800s alternated with a fast but not all out 200 accompanied by a 400 rest jog. 5 miles total this morning.

PM-Easy 5 miles at lunchtime. Sandy Parkway. No time. Stretching later on.

Well, I really debated on whether or not to report on this race seeing that I really did not do all that well this year. I will not write any excuses or explanations. It is what it is, right? No worries, pickup and keep going. Lately I have been running for the sake of enjoyment and a way to recover and have some time to myself. I think that this approach from time to time has enabled me to come back stronger in the end anyway. I am not a machine which can just train for training sake,in order to crank out race after race. But hey, we'll see what happens. I'm still young and I want to be in this game for the long haul.

Went for 9 miles this evening up to Bell Canyon and back with 75-80% mhr for the bulk of the run. Some 30 sec speed pickups thrown in at the end. 1 mile cooldown with some stretching also afterwards. I have noticed a little stretching can go a long ways especially after a race like the Magna 5k.  Change in schedule to better accomodate Saturday's long run.

Big Long Run this morning for 2:29:32 total time. 23 miles total distance estimated on the conservative side. Started out very easy and progressively worked toward running faster right up to the end. Finished the last 2 miles at 5:45-5:52/mile pace. Just hard enough at the end to get a really good high aerobic workout.  Worked from the east bench down to the Jordan river trail and back up to the east bench, then swung back downhill towards home.  65-85% mhr.  Fluid stops at the trail head and at 90th south made for good practice drinking on the run. It also made a big difference towards the end when the pace was increased.  Feels good to be done with that particular workout this week as it takes up a huge amount of time to run it, then cooldown, and then stretch afterwards.  It's not a very family friendly workout if you know what I mean. 

  Dark Horse out....
