Truly a great run today. The trails in the Dimple Dell Gully were mostly open with only the upper portion having much snow. So I was able to get in 9.25 miles mostly on trails. I would have done more because I really felt great, but it was getting dark and I have a couple hundred essays to grade.

9.25 in 1:13

Nifty new run today...

Ran through the middle of the gully up to the top at Mount Jordan Road, then right on Little Cottonwood Road and left on Wasatch Blvd - then back only along the north rim of the gully to 24 Hour Fitness on 13th East in Sandy. Just used the gym for the shower today.

12 miles in 1:33. Very hilly, probably zero level ground on the whole run. I estimate about 36,002 feet of elevation gain and loss over the 12 miles. Does that sound about right Jon?

Then I picked up Abby at swim practice. Spaghetti and meatballs with a good salad for dinner.

am: A mile easy on the treadmill followed by weights/strength training.

pm: Great workout this afternoon...

4.25 mile warm-up

8 x 200 on the track at Highland High 36, 35, 34, 34, 33, 31, 31, and 29.89 for number eight which I'm pretty fired up about.

1 mile cool down.

So I'm watching an episode of Spongebob right now called "Spongebob Lawyerpants". Plankton slipped on some water in the Krusty Krab and is bringing a lawsuit against Mr. Krabs who is being represented by Spongebob. Mr Krabs just admitted under oath that he does not own a wet floor sign. "I had to make some tough business decisions... and the wet floor sign seemed superflous".

Why is Mr. Krab's daughter a whale?
