Long run with my track kids today, my longest in a couple of months.  It was warm but the wind made it tough and super dry.  I was surprised that I could run that far, especially since that was a much as i ran the first half of February.  I had about 80 kids show up to track that wanted to run distance so I was trying to weed out a bit as well.  Adductor issue still there, but maybe starting to mend, I hope!

I turned 30 years old today!  I had my assistants do practice and I went home early and went on my own run.  I ran into Highland and back for 5.5 miles at a 6:58 average, the best run I've had in months.  The weather was nice, even though it had snowed earlier.  I felt the hip more today because I was moving faster.

It was still cold today, mid 30s, but we ran a longer run anyway.  We is me and my distance track kids.  We did a loop down by Riverton Walmart into Bluffdale and back.  It was a n easy day but tough for me because I am so out of shape.  It sure felt good to run.  No pain on the run, just some irritation afterward.  7:29 pace for the run.

I ran an easy run with the kids today and did some strides, which felt weird since I hadn't donne anything fast in months.  I added a couple of miles on my own to get 7 miles total.  Gorgeous day!

Another gorgeous day out!  I did an 800 meter time trial with the team.  Chris and Parker had a sweet race against each other that was fun to watch.  Afterward I ran with the guys for just over four miles.  Felt okay.

I ran with some of the guys out to Bingham High. We did the standard using of their water and bathrooms and checked out their track.  The run was fun and good for me.  I felt pretty good, without much pain.  The weather was excellent!  7:35ave. for the run.

Morning run today.  I only went for five miles because of time and I feel beat up from two hours of basketball yesterday.  This made for 23 miles on the week, which is more miles than I got the whole month of February!  I ran up to the Highland City buildings and back.  I didn't notice the hips issues too much because I had aches and pains every where.  I did get the last mile, which is slight downhill, in 6:16.  Beautiful day outside!  7:26 ave. for the run.

Lifted upper body and lower body

I had my guys lift and then we ran an easy 4.5 miles and did some strides on the grass when we got back.  I lifted my upper body at the Rec Center when I got home.  Still cold today.

Easy run with the guys this afternoon.  It was freezing cold out and had snowed most of the day.  we averaged 7:43 for the 6.5 mile loop.

After the run we lifted upper body.  I lifted with them today so I wouldn't have to come home and do it.

Alex, Derrek, and Stockton came by the school this morning and we went out around the neighborhoods for an easy run and did 4X100m strides on the grass when we go back.
