AM-16 miles at lunchtime up to and through Wasatch Blvd.  HIIT workout in the first segment and then easy in the middle with a pick up in pace again on the last 3 miles.

One thing I left out..  Mainly because I wasn't sure about identification of the bird.  Just a short distance from the La Caille on Wasatch Blvd I had an encounter with a bird of prey I could of swore was a Peregrine falcon.  It flew over to me from it's nest high in the trees and literally came within feet of me!  It landed, then became airborne again, (Perhaps fetching lunch?)  and hovered a bit until I had passed and then went back to it's high tree nest.  I have to admit it was a bit scary...  But exciting at the same time. 
Anyway.. Something different on the run for me.

AM-10 miles today consisting of random fartlek segments at LT intensity. Really windy going out so I had to just slow down a lot in the beginning and not worry about pace timing. Some days you can use pace compared to current race ability. Other days not so much...

PM-No run this afternoon. Went up to visit my parents this afternoon and run some errands. By the time I got home I needed to prepare dinner; (which I ruined.. Fried Chicken and potatoes.)  It's ok I have enough mileage so far this week. No sweat. And Kim thought the chicken was just fine if not a little burnt)-

On a side note Spock died today..  Kind of sad when I found out. I really liked Leonard Nimoy and have always been a big fan of the original Star Trek series. I first remember seeing it in syndication when I was just a little shaver and on a black and white TV with rabbitt ears for an antenna!  Most people didn't have cable back then.. The world has lost a good actor and a really great human being. He was 83 today.

Live long and prosper..

AM-Easy 5 mile recovery jog. Wore my old Pegasus out of the closet which felt mushy compared to the T-7s but definitely easier on the legs.  Fritz has me sold on the shoe so I may just make them my next pair and save the T-7 for faster work.

PM-No run. Carboloading with sphaghetti and Ragu for tomorrows long run while watching Out of Africa. I really like the cinematography in it.
