3 more miles running up on the trails near Spanish Fork Canyon. I think it as more than 3 miles, but I forgot to turn on my watch. I will just log what I know for sure here. Hot and sweaty time out there though.

You're crazy! No way I could have survived an 8 mile treadmill run haha!

Hey there Warbeast. You don't even know crazy. I have done crazier miles than that on the dreadmill. Feel free to browse my blog in fall 2009-Summer 2010. Way more crazy there haha! :-)

It's fun to read your blog posts that aren't regarding an injury. I'm so glad you are feeling well!

From Lily on Mon, Mar 30, 2015 at 21:12:28 from 67.199.181.106

Heeeey Kam! I am in total agreeance with you! I'm injury free, feeling so happy. Hoping to keep it that way... Via: Easy Pace. I've missed out on so much the last couple of years. Time to keep it together and run some fun races this year.

6 mile progression. Then I did hill sprints on the tready x6. But I didn't count that mileage in. Somehow I don't feel like it counts. But it totally kicked my butt doing them!

I wasn't sure if I would actually show up and race this. My right leg has been hurting for about 3 weeks, and I had stopped training about 3 weeks prior. But I am sick of losing money the last few years for races I can't show up to. And my leg was feeling better so I thought I would show up. daughter was running the mile anyway and I love to run her in the last half mile so I went.

This is my slowest 5k time I think. Makes sense with a lack of training and running this last year. But still pleased that I can get my legs turning over. Splits were 6:36 6:30 6:50 Good enough for 2nd overall female today. I know I am not as fast and agile as I used to be, but getting that back will take time. But with the injury cycle I keep finding myself in, I may never get back there which makes me sad. As I got in the car to go home, I looked at my medal and I am poitive I was given the wrong medal and award. 

My daugheter who is 9 ran the mile and finshed first female. She cruised in at about a 6:56 pace. So so awesome for a 9 yeard old. She is pretty driven. I love it!

Good job, hope you get your medal sorted out. I would want the right one too. I liked this race course, who wouldn't like downhill. I got third in my age division and didn't even realize till I got home and checked online. I messaged the race director to see if I could pick up my medal, no response yet.

I never log miles anymore. But guess what? I am still out there running every week. Saturday is now turning into my 'long run" day. ha! 5 miles is nothing to brag over. But I figure in order to keep myself out of the injury pit, I am going to have to do the slowest mileage build up of all time. So each Saturday I add a half a mile and that is all I add in any week. By the time Spring gets here I will be so ready for a marathon. I will get there again. I know I will.

Thanks Dan & Dale for the comments. Yep, still out there running. I've been doing this forever, I'll never stop ;) like a junky with their crack. I had a mishap with my hip 2 weeks ago (not running related) so I had to stop. But got out today with no pain. So glad
