AM-Easy 4 mile jog with 6x30 sec pickups in the middle. 7th/ob.

Spent the rest of my day off watching wood working and antique radio cabinet restoration videos.  My other hobby.. Getting into the woodworking aspect of things now which takes more patience, but is ultimately more satisfying in many respects.

PM-6 miles of trail work with the same 6x30 sec accelerations.

AM-10 miles with 10x30 second speed hills/1min jog rest and then 6 miles of threshold running at 5:40-:50 pace with subtle and alternating slower periods in pace above that.  Basically just trying nudge down the threshold with random road fartlek by feel..  I'm fairly good at estimating distance and workload with just gmap so I'll go with it. 7th/94th/20th east hill route.

PM-5 mile afternoon heathen run. (34:17) 7th/10th plus grass strides.

Celebrated my son Ian's 13th birthday. My other son Aaron smashed a cupcake into his face and started a food fight during his speech about being 13..  At the same time our living room clock chimed on the hour Jim Croce's melody; "Time in a Bottle".   Priceless..

AM-10 miles late morning. Slow.. 8/min pace up and 7-7:30/mile pace down. 94th/7th/o/b. You have to take the heat into consideration however..  Plus being a bit dehydrated on the way out.

AM-5 miles treadmill. (34:48) flat. 

PM-No run.  Ron Clarke former Olympian of the 5000 and 10000 meter events passed away a couple days ago. He was a tenacious runner coupled with intelligence and a strong work ethic. Looking to watch some documentary footage on him later today hopefully.  A true champion and gentleman.

PM-No run. Dropped by a neighbors place with a small gift to say hi and to chat for a bit. Glad I did..  Love thy neighbor as thyself.  This is definitely one thing I think we as a people can do better on.  Back in the day when I was growing up, community was everything in my neighborhood..  More than ever I believe this is just as important if not more so today especially with recent current events.  Out..

AM-6 miles 7th/94th/w. o/b (42:08) 

Put in my USATF membership application today for this year. I'ts been a while and I felt it was important join and support. So many of the better road races here in Utah are made possible through them.

PM-9 miles late afternoon easy aerobic. Untimed. Just took it out easy by feel. Lots of Gatorade and slurpee afterwards.

AM-6 miles with 8x400m intervals. 72-77/sec.  Track/7th. 

Spent the afternoon replacing vacuum lines and a TPS sensor on our car. It started to idle high and began to have a mind of it's own when accelerating.  Glad I got that out of the way...

About 90 degrees plus again this morning. Experimenting with a drastic taper which is based on a study by East Carolina University. It involves a drastic mileage cut combined with 5k intensity intervals starting at 8x400m and decreasing each day in number as the taper progresses.

AM-3 miles on 7th with 4x1 minute pickups at 5k effort. Got up early and started a scriptural daily devotional of sorts. Glad I did because it really helps to put things in a good spiritual perspective for the day.
