13.1 mile run. The overpass loop mostly in the dark. The run started out pretty hard as I was feeling pretty stiff and sore from last week. Then I started to loosen up as I made my way down off the trail into GS. Had to find a port-a-potty for a little roadside action. Then after that I struggled to get going again. So overall not the best run in the world for me. I will try to get out again this evening as we prepare to leave for Orem tomorrow morning for wrestling. I'll be up there the rest of the week.

9.2  miles this afternoon. Went from the grass store up  the trail around the hill that Stone Cliff sits on- past the Hooper estate and back down River Side Dr. It was very nice this afternoon- shorts and a t' shirt. Good run.

14.1 mile morning run. Same usual loop other than I extended it around the first and last through Middleton. Again I used the stick last night and my legs felt way better this morning.

Now it's off to the northern tundra for the rest of the week for state wrestling. I'm not sure what kind of running I'll get in... but I've been planning on this week being down anyways due to state.

10.2 miles this morning. More laps around the mall parking lot. Today there was snow, ice, and slush. Get me back to the desert!

4.65 more miles around the Mall. It really wasn't that bad running there. I'd do it again. No traffic, or lights and each lap was about 1.2 miles long depending on what tangents you ran.

16 mile run this moring with Sasha, Ted, and Jeff.

9 degrees this morning in Provo. I'm just trying to get through this run and happy we are not doing a tempo or anything...

Sasha picked me up from my motel and we went back and did 6 miles before the other guys got there. As we were making our way back to meet up with those guys Sasha said we needed to run tempo speed to get back on time. So we pushed it out back up to the house... not too fun in the cold.

Then Ted and Jeff joined us and most of the rest was pretty laid back. We did pick it up a little at the end to catch and pass the 7 min guy.

Glad to get that one in the bank. This has been a long trip. I'll head home Saturday and try and run when I get there.

Finally got home after being gone all week up at the state wrestling tournament. This has been a long week. Some good, some bad, all very stressful and memorable. Now I'm just trashed. 

The run was down past the fire station, up the Millcreek trail, over the powerline trail to the water tank. Then down into the industrial park and back home. The weather was nice but I felt terrible. I think with everything all week I've just over did it a little and this run was almost too much. I had planned on going 16-18 but came home with a stomach ache and called it good.

The wrestling year has came and went. My 6th and final season as a coach at Dixie High. We ended up finishing in 4th place overall as a team and having two 1st place champions. It was good and bad. Good that some of the guys reached some big goals and bad that some of them didn't even do half of what they did the year before.  All and all I've loved it and loved the kids. I'll miss it next year but it's just time to be done... for now.
