Well I figured out I have bursitis of the semimembranosis bursa in my knee.  I went to the Chiro yesterday and got adjusted and that helped, not to mention a couple of roll outs on the TP quadball.  I ran 4 miles with my new Garmin 220, awesome watch!  Super hot out, but just glad to run again.  7:20 ave

Woke up early and ran out to the Cove and back.  Knee was stiff and tight and took a while to get going.  Never felt great, but finally started moving on the way back.  7:23 ave.

Knee stiffened up pretty bad today after.   This could take a while to get over.

Knee still super stiff.  Stayed up too late last night watching a movie, but it didn't effect me this morning.  I ran out around the Cove and down to almost Main Street on 6400 West and back.  I felt awful at first and the knee took a while to loosen up, but I was actually moving good.  Ran out in 37:15 and then ran the last 5k in 19:14 with a 5:48 last mile and finished with a 6:59 ave for the 10 miles.  Not a bad run for feeling bad at first.

First day of summer today for me.  I slept in until 7:30am, it was great.  Then after I took Jaren to school I went on a run.  Knee was more stiff during the run then it has been yet.  I ended up going on the same run as Saturday, but did it a little quicker.  My last couple of miles weren't as fast, but I ran out about 20-30 seconds faster.  Ended up with a 1:09:31, 6:57 ave for the run.  Weather was nice and didn't get hot until the end. 

Knee stiffened right up after the run again.

Knee is finally going down and not so swollen, but is super stiff.  Lucy and I got into NYC last night too late to run.  We are staying right by Grand Central and the Cryler Builing in the Grand Hyatt with the Dream Milers and the Pros, pretty cool.  I found out that Central Partk was a 25 minute walk and went down today to check it out.  Pretty cool!  So I got Lucy and her mom to come run in the park.  We ran around the pond from the west sid and just messed around in the middle.  It was a really fun run.  I have always wanted to run in Central Park.  We finished our run and headed back to the hotel and about when we got to the Rockafellar Tower in started raining like crazy and flooding the streets, so we ran back the last mile and got drenched, but had a lot of fun.  4.5 miles

Tomorrow is the Adidas Grand Prix and it should be cool.  Conner Mantz and Sarah Feeny are here with us, so 3 Utah kids in the Dream Mile.

First day of Summer XC this morning.  Had about 75 kids show up along with some of my Herriman and Riverton Alumni.  Knee is not swollen, but super tight and I think the trip back from New York was tough on it.  I went slow with Greg and we worked our way up to the faster girls from the back on a 4.5 mile run.  Allison came down after and I ran 4 easy with her.  At times the knee felt ok and other times it was super tight.  My calf and hip were tighening up too.  I think I will go this week and get laser treatment, I really dont want to take several weeks off, so hopefully I can get it better.  I have already taken the better part of 3 weeks off and it is better, but not better.

Ran to practice and then ran the Juniper, Rosecrest, 13400 South loop with the kids. and then hom after.  The knee was better than it has been, but still tight.  My calf on the same side is ore, so I limp at first, which isn't good.  7:26 ave for the 5 miles and then 9:00 for the mile home.

Knee and calf were hammered today, but I ran down to practice and ran with the kids anyway.   Did and 4.5 mile loop with the kids and then ran home with Rory.  7:41 pace for the 6.5 miles

Lifted weights at the HS and then got some laser treatment on the knee after practice.

Ran with Stockton and the kids on the Res trail up and over the summit and down to the other side and back.  Trail was rough, but it was good to get back on a trail.  Once I got going the knee and calf were better then they have been in a month.  The laser must be working on my knee.  8:41 pace for the 5.5 miles, but still a tough run.

I warmed up for just under a mile with Tim before the race.  I saw Golden Harpe at the start and figured he would win it.  The other two guys that are ahead orf me in the series were there too.  My goal was to just get through the 10k without hurting my knee worse.  I figured if I could stay within 4 minutes of those two guys I should be able to make that up in a half.  Jenkins took off at the first and there were a few runners that went out with him, while Golden stayed just behind.  We started at the horse trail across from Butterfield and went up the new trail over the summit and down to the Reservoir, then turned around and went back up over and back to the start.  Tough course!  The climb was tough for me because of the knee and that is where the other 3 Golden, Jenkins, and Kidd) got the best of me.  I pushed a decent pace for the race regardless and finisjed 4th and not too far back.  I got a rock under my left heel in the last .5 miles and didn't want to stop to take it out, so I ended up with a nice blister on bottom.  48:20 was my time.  Cooled down for a mile after with Rory, who had come to watch and visit. 

Now I just need to get this knee better.

Yellow Fork this morning with my kids.  This run is alway way tough, but even harder the first time up every season.  We had a good crew going up the Riverton Varsity hill.  Always hard not to walk on that last .6 miles up.  11 orf us including Rory and Syockton headed to the lookout ridge another mile up and then we came down Rose Canyon.  The run was tough going down, so my knee was suer tight and my blister from Saturday needed more padding, but we still got down pretty quick.  Last 1.5 was under 6 minute pace for me, Rory, Jordan, and Isaac.  Good run, but glad to be done with that one.  Now I need to ice and get a nap.  1:21:36 for the 9.3 miles, 8:46 ave.  This was one of the faster times for this run that I have done.

Butterfield Canyon this morning.  I ran with Jordan, Stockton, and the faster boys up the canyon.  We started slow and picked it up as we went.  On the way down Jordan, Stockton, Isaac, and I pulled away from everyone else.  Jordan and I pulled away from the other two with 1.5 miles to go.  Our last 3 miles were at 5:24 pace.  It hurt, but felt good to get the legs going again.  The knee stiffened right up after the run, but was ok for most of the run. I averaged 6:57 for the run.

Easy 5 miles at 7:19 pace.  We are headed to San Diego for the next 8 days and I think I will take it off to see if I can get this knee better, it is super swollen and sore.  I hate to take time off, but I am going backwards I think.  Hopefully a full week will help.
