Trying a new 10 week half marathon training schedule.  I started today and hope to see some results when I do the Ogden Half in 10 weeks.  Today the schedule called for 800m repeats @ half marathon goal pace with 200m recovery.  I just figured I would stick with whatever pace felt like I was getting a workout.  I did 1.5 warm-up then got into the repeats over at Hurricane High School's track.

1-2:56

2-2:56

3-2:54

4-2:54

5-2:52

Did 1.5 cool-down then called it a day.  My legs were a little sore before I started the workout, still feeling the effects from Saturday's long run, so I didn't want to push to much and get injured.

Basketball this morning

Ran up the Overlook Trail over by Howard's, then down to the highway and over to Nephi's Twist then back home.  I struggled today, lots of trails and lots of uphill climbs and steep downhills on rocks.

Well, this was an ok race considering where I'm at.  Last year I ran 37:26, so I was hoping to be close to that.  This year we had a decent headwind for much of the race, so it slowed me down some, plus being out of shape.

Did 3 miles of warm-up

1-5:32 Always a fast downhill mile, just tried to hold back

2-6:10 Legs feeling dead already

3-6:07

4-6:25 Stopped for a moment at the aid station

5-6:50 Walked for a bit right after the mile 4 marker.

6-6:36 Still struggling

.2-1:02

38:43 (6:14)

So this was slower than last year, but still good to get out and push myself.

Did 4 miles cool-down from Mike's up to his old house and then back.
