Ran with Greg. Met at 7:00 am. Were a little surprised that the temperatures were so pleasant after hearing the forecasts. Took it fairly easy for the first three miles (8:05, 7:38, 7:35) before we turned the corner and headed north on the long uphill stretch. Pushed a pretty good pace. I was feeling more sluggish than usual, possibly because of the hard run on Thursday. It was helpful to be running with Greg and just trying to keep up. Ran fast down the hill to the mouth of American Fork Canyon and then cruised for a a mile or so before pushing it to the end. when I weighed myself later I was happy to find that my weight has finally started to come down. I've lost an average of pound a week for the last seven weeks (now at 157). I'd like to get down another ten to twelve pounds.

Good work. Do not worry about the weight too much. If you are running faster, things are going well.
