I finally got up, laced up and went out the door today.  The injury seems to have come back for the better some and I hope maybe so will I.  Deseret News 10k is maybe still in the cards but I can't guarantee it. However it definitely won't be anything like years past unfortunately. Thats ok though because I need to run this for the sake of just being out there again.  I guess you could say it's going to be a recovery run of sorts both physically and spiritually also.  I just want to go run and just have fun this time:)

Cycled for an hour with 20 minutes uptempo on the trail and around Layton running a couple of errands today.

No run today. Went to Church and afterwards did some reading for a couple of hours. I'm starting to feel a bit better physically now and also in some other areas of life so I'm going to start running again this week:) 

You know I've been reading "Born to Run" lately and wow what a great read..  I think I may be slowly being converted to the Ultra and trail running. And I hope to start possibly do some barefoot running soon after I get my hands on some five fingers to build up and into.  It sounds exciting but a bit daunting and even a little scary also after some of the accounts I read in the book.  Is this really for me?  I don't know but it sure sounds fun and I guess I'll soon find out.  It may be just what I need in my life right now too:)

Easy 6 miles early this morning.  Lost some sleep for it too but I need to get used to that now. Up toward Kaysville out and back via the trail. 7:30-8/min pace.  Taking it easy on things just in case.

Easy 10 miles on the trail in very minimal flats.  Stayed on the soft shoulder today and it definitely payed off in dividends. My legs don't even feel as if they ran today for the most part. Pulled over into some nice shady trees and switched out of the treads. I then started my slightly crazy barefoot running experiment. Set the limit for 3 minutes just to start out on the safe side.  But wait a minute maybe I should be doing this on grass perhaps I told myself?  Oh well...  it was interesting and also fun but this is going to take some time to get used to for sure.

Ran on the trail for 6 miles with 2x10 min at 10k-half marathon pace effort while taking a 2 min easy rest interval in between repeats.  Nothing fancy, just did the work cooled down and stretched afterwards for 10 min or so. Took a 35 min easy wake up spin on the bike to warm things up a bit before the run. 

An awesome morning to run and ride:)

7 miles with fartlek repeats at random intervals with full recovery on the trail.  4 min barefoot on the treadmill.  Tight right hamstring and piriformis afterward again:( 

Unrelenting and never ending it seems unfortunately...

A some what easy 6 miles on the trail even though heart rate said otherwise.  You could fry eggs on this trail today.  5 mile easy spin on the bike later.
