Warmed up for a couple of miles with Richard and then did the American Fork loop backwards. Felt like I needed to stop for a potty break during mile 7, but when I stopped to look around for facilities I started to feel better. Ended up doing about a mile more than I had planned and ran a bit faster. After warmup miles of 11 and 12 minutes, picked up the pace (the next three 8:02 to 8:59 and the following three 7:36 to 7:53). Overall average 8:45.

Highland Glen loop this morning with the run up the hill on North Cottonwood Drive. I felt great after yesterday's run, but this morning my left heel was a bit sore. It wasn't a problem once I got warmed up, but something to keep an eye on. I think the whole family is planning to get to the rec center tonight so I may get a little extra workout in. Tomorrow I'll have to run at noon as I have a dental hygiene appointment at 8 in Murray. It's a little odd to travel so far to see the dentist since we have so many good ones close by, but I've been going to see Dr. Smith for about thirty years and I'm not about to change now.

 Went to the AF Fitness Center with the family after work. Got in another three miles on the indoor track. Spent 15 minutes on the elliptical as well.

Shorter version of my normal Highland Glen loop. As I had an 8:00 a.m. dental hygiene appointment in Murray, I postponed today's run until lunch time. Probably a good thing...when I checked the temperature this morning when I got up, the windchill was 27! I had to check the date to make sure I'd slept through the summer and early fall. Average pace for the run was 8:16.

A bit cool this morning, at least for June. It was 42 when I left the house, but clear and beautiful. Feeling a bit of soreness in my left heel starting out, but it disappears once I get warmed up. Raced the quail this morning along the trail. For some reason they didn't take off flying, they were running along about six feet in front of me. Man, their leg turnover must be 500 steps per minute or more (remind me to count next time). I saw Antonio L. ahead of my on the North Cottonwood hill, so naturally I had to speed up to catch him. He wasn't moving real fast, but he kept up a pretty steady pace. He was wearing his headphones, so I think I startled him a bit as I caught up to him. I said hi and took off and then saw him again after I turned around. I've invited him to join us on Monday mornings, but so far he hasn't made it.

 After work I went to the AF Fitness Center with Laureen and Brittany. I ran 3.16 miles and then stopped to watch a boy's baseball game. It brought back a lot of memories. When we got home we were delighted to find that Amelia had cooked dinner and set the table (as we were all starving). A real nice day all around.

Lunch time run of the Kohler's loop. Just a little bit of a breeze out of the south made it very comfortable. Nothing but blue skies and sunshine. Average pace was 8:23.
