Lifted weights this morning for about 50 minutes.  My right achilles has given me problems since my run on Saturday.  I've decided to not try and run again until Wednesday evening or Thursday.  Hopefully things will be back to normal by then and I can push it pretty hard for a week and a half and then do a short taper before the Odgen marathon.

6.0 in 45 min on the TM.

Decided to give the achilles a try today on the TM.  This is the first run since Saturday.  Felt pretty normal, but still a little something going on with the achilles.  The big test will be to see how it feels tomorrow.  The couple days off did help my body feel really good though.  Had lots of energy and felt like I could have kept up the pace for a while.

Mile 1 - 8:00

Mile 2 - 7:13

Mile 3 - 7:07

Mile 4 - 7:03

Mile 5 - 7:13

Great run.  Started at Willow Park and ran north on the JRP into a very heavy wind for 3.5 miles with Mark.  Turned around and flew back to the car.








I would have known I so close to sub 6 on the last mile maybe I would have been able to somehow push it to under 6.  Oh well.  Great run and my achilles is feeling pretty good.

Miserable, miserable run.  Started at the base of Provo Canyon at 7:45 in a light, steady run.  Ran up 8 miles, and then back down.  I was good for about 5 miles and then it just got miserable.  I was soaked.  My legs got cold and stiff.  There was hardly anybody on the trail, so that makes things kind of boring.  I like to have people to catch up to.  It felt like I was carrying about 20 extra pounds of weight because my clothes were water logged.  After the run I was squeezing a ton of water out of my gloves, hat, short, and shirt.  Miserable.  I gave in to the weather on the way down.  Just couldn’t keep a good pace.  I did hit the 8 mile mark about 2 minutes earlier than last week.

Lifted and ran 4.30 on the TM.  These were good quality MP miles.  Will try to put in a lot of miles next week.
