AM: Went to Liberty Park and did 3 laps around the wood chip.

6 x 100-150 striders after. I ran these pretty fast. I need to do these more often. I also need to think about why I obsess so much over every little detail with the runners I coach and I basically just wing it with my own training.

PM: 2.25 mile jog warm-up. Weights. Did only one set of most lifts as I haven't lifted for a couple months and I don't want to be too sore tomorrow.

Walked a hard three miles this morning - about as fast as Stonewall Jackson drove his corps of the Army of Northern Virginia in pursuit of Hooker at the battle of Chancellorsville.

Fifteen easy miles just cruising around the Sugarhood. 

For some reason I had Golden Earring's "Radar Love" going through my head the whole time.

Hard trail run way up high in the mountains. If fact, I don't think I dropped below ten thousand feet for more than a couple miles.

Drove up to the top of Albion Basin and parked. Lots of running around there and over to Snowbird. Then across Catherine's Pass and down into Brighton and back. Lots of hard climbing. I was planning to go a bit more but, quite frankly, I was tired.

Trail running is so slow. I used to wonder why we have so many guys on this blog who log more mileage than the ultra runners on the blog. But it took me FOREVER to run 17 miles today. I think my fastest mile was 8:02. It drives me crazy to look at my Garmin and see 13 minute pace with my heart exploding out of my chest.

I'm going to have to make the mental adjustment.
