AM-15 miles late morning with the last 5 miles at 4 min alternating LT/MP effort. Draper township o/b via 13th east. Lots of wind heading out..  80 degrees F.

PM-No run. The workout plus the heat left me a little drained this evening. This was the longest distance I've gone in a while so no surprise.  The great news is that I didn't have have to stop. Not even once for sciatic, hamstring or PF issues. Thats a big deal for me..  It means I can actually train like the old Steve again:)   I just need to be really methodical and cautious.

AM-4 miles this morning on 7th. Crappy sleep and quarreling cats last night kept me awake so I decided to work on a project and listen to some old time radio shows.  Went for a run and took a nap afterwards.

AM-10 miles on 80th/JRP o/b. No watch. The steady climb coming back seemed easier on the legs than in previous weeks. Good sign.

AM-Ran very easy up through Big Cottonwood trail and back from home and then pushed to MP on the way back down.

Beautiful area along with being able to see how the "other half lives".. This was definitely a good experience and has actually re-awakened my dream to pursue something better.  For the first time in my life I was actually entertaining law school..  Something which since the age of 18 I have always dreamed about.  Crazy thought at age 44 right?
