Good run tonight, actually two different runs.  I ran out to my school in 32:00 4.5 miles 7:06 average, so I was happy with that a little quicker than I usually run.  Then I put some grades in the computer for about 20 minutes, used the bathroom, got a drink and then ran 4.5 miles home, pushed to run negative split home hit 31:17 so a 6:57 average.

Did the La Verkin 5k loop this morning, at least I think that was the route as I was still pretty much asleep. The morning runs are rough on my ankle and other joints, seems like it takes me forever to get warmed up.

Decent run tonight, went over 600 North trail to the new Maverick store where Sunny picked me up.  Pace was 7:45, which was ok.  I went into the running store this afternoon to visit with Steve. We talked a little about the Grand Slam, and I think maybe I will not do it this year.  I think I'll just focus on the following:

1. Run a decent Ogden

2. Continue to lose the weight

3. Increase the mileage 

4. Work on developing some speed over the summer, try to run some fast 10K's and halves,

5.  Shoot for sub 2:40 this fall at St. George.

Basketball this morning. Planning of Pah Tempe Hill Repeats this afternoon.

I didn't get a run in this afternoon.  I got home from work and my father in-law was at my house ready to help me move a bunch of dirt for the basketball pad we will be building later this spring hopefully.  Actually worked out pretty good, I have a new neighbor that is building a house right next to me, so we are taking a bunch of the dirt he doesn't need and leveling off a place for a nice court.  It is going to be about 30 x 30 so it will be a decent size for the kids to play on.

After working for a few hours I was pretty beat, plus we had a party tonight for Jordan's 13th birthday.  Yep, we've got a teenager in the house now.  Anyway, I'm just ready for bed now, I was feeling a little sick yesterday and it seems to be a little worse today.

Still feeling sick, but decided to still go to the club run.  We did a trail run which was right around 9 miles.  I didn't feel too bad, ran the last 5 miles with Logan as his hammy was still bothering him.  About half way into the run I tweaked my right ankle, but I was still able to run on it without much pain.

No run today as I've been sick.  I came home from work and hit the bed.  Hope to be feeling good enough tomorrow to get in a few miles.  I would at least like to hit 40 miles for the week.  My week started off pretty good, but being the sick the last few days hasn't been good.

Still not feeling very good, but decided to go out and try a run.  I ran over to Hurricane High then did a mile around the track then ran home, pace was very slow.  Now I hope to just rest up and get over this cold by next week.
