Tough 6 miles with 2x2 miles at Vo2 pace effort.  Felt great.  Very busy still moving things and in the upcoming days I'm not sure how much running I'll be able to get in. On the bright side I don't seem to have lost too much fitness fortunately.

Another easy 6 miles at 7-8/min pace with some pickups on Antelope Dr.  Feeling yesterdays run a bit though.  One of these days I'm going to go out and explore the islands trail system. I started to have dreams about running an Ultra last night!  I think maybe just once at least. It definitely has been on my my mind lately for some reason.

I'm back after a hectic couple of weeks.. No run today though.  I know.. It's stake conference today but I was getting a little restless so I decided it was a good day today to go for an easy ride and explore some more of my new surroundings:)

Easy-medium 6 miles on Antelope Dr and Gordon. Weights on the machine and some stretching to follow up with.   Everything went well in spite of the wind and the gloomy overcast stage.  Can't have all sunny days right?  Later on lifted some leg weights and took care of some other matters.  Feeling much better today and in a good way too.

 Still planning on running Deseret News this year even though it may not be the PR of a lifetime but it will still be a good one in other ways:)  

PM-Easy bike ride to Barnes and Noble and back.

Easy run again today and the wind seemed like it was coming from all directions today I guess.  Enjoyed the Thunderbirds air show from Hill today it was like watching mock dogfights overhead a nice little show on the road to make the time fly. Pretty cool display of their skills. I gotta say we have the best pilots in the world that is for sure:) But, I have to admit I almost tripped on the freakin sidewalk watching them...

10 miles total.  Antelope and Main route.  Off to run an errand now and do some more stretching/pushups/crunches.  On a side note the hip and piriformis have improved dramatically lately. Yeah!   Des News here we come..

No run today. Went to church this afternoon. Especially enjoyed Sunday school and it was well taught. I could definitely feel the spirit present.

AM-Bike ride for 30 minutes this morning.

PM-Easy 12 miles at evening after a long day on the Davis park trail.  This trail goes on for what seems like forever.. And I think it may actually be longer than the Jordan river trail system but to be sure I'd have to look that one up using Google earth or something.

AM-Easy 30 min ride to warm the legs up and then 12 miles on the same route as yesterday only difference was that some of the workout was out towards Syracuse.

PM-Easy bike ride again. This evening I stopped at Barnes at Noble and browsed through some Thoreau to engage my mind on other things for a while. It was actually pretty interesting and engaging prose in some places and relaxing for a change.  Yeah so what I know I'm a book nerd sometimes. I can't help it though it's just who I am and I'm to old to change anyhow..

AM-Biked to the Krispy Kreme. A nice 6 mile run after a nice sugar high. Headed out towards Kaysville and back. 

PM-No run, spent the evening later looking for a microwave at Lowe's. Oh well that's ok it's an easy recovery day anyway.  I just feel like I'm slacking if I'm not on at least the first page of the mileage board:)
