AM-Originally had only planned on 10 miles today but took it out for the MP run because I may not get the chance tomorrow.

Ft Union/Wasatch Blvd. No time taken ust ran as I felt. Conventional wisdom says this isn't going to work but then again conventional running wisdom hasn't worked for me in the past however.

Listening and staying in tune with the body has..

PM-Easy shakeout run on 7th with Kevin.

AM-10.4 mile progression run consisting of 2.4 miles on the soft deck mill, then 6 progressive at 6:30-6:10/mi./ .5-1.5% incline on the treadmill with the overhead fan.  Had to stop a few times to down some grape Powerade; (no breakfast and very few calories yesterday which was my fault..) Then my sciatic nerve/SI joint started acting up.. So I jumped off and did my extended 2 mile cool down home and called it a day.  Not sure why I experience this SI problem so much more on the treadmill vs the roads. In most respects I'm feeling great but it's time to back things off a little now.  (For my own info the the single leg presses and abduction exercises yesterday may have stressed that area a bit too much.)

PM-8 miles easy 7-8 min pace. Fall is most definitely in the air now.

AM-4 ez on the mill wake-up. 7:30-8/min pace no incline. Last mile at 6:40ish..

PM-8 miles easy on the roads late evening. 7-8/min pace.  Tired.. Slept pretty hard however and woke up refreshed so that was still in the positive.  Somebody asked me the other day what I ran volume and pace wise and if that wasn't just junk mileage. I smiled and told him; you need to go out and string 4-8 weeks of 100 plus miles per week and then come back to me and we'll talk..

AM-8 miles easy. 4 on the mill (29:55) .5%-1% incline and 4 on the road at 7-8/min pace.Feeling good about aerobic progress just still a bit tired and tight from the high mileage.  Found a really great quote by Eleanor Roosevelt that I thought I would share as a thought for the day.

  "Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events, small minds discuss people"..
