Early morning TmdM run. Felt louzy yesterday... Some kinda bug or something. Woke up feeling almost good, so I went for it. Started off 8:00 and then worked down to 7:16 last little bit under 7:00. Incline 1.0. Could tell the legs were still a little tired from the Buffalo run. Looking to get a decent recovery week in.

Afterwork run with Tony... aughh he put me in place today! I don't know if it was the Buffalo catching up with me, or the del taco for lunch, or the Hills and Head Wind we battled for most of the run... Good one to have in the books.

Was planning on starting the week off right with an early morning run outside..Couldn't get out of bed, so - decided I better get out when I got home! Glad I did - had a great run. Headed out towards middle fork and ended up going just past the bridge and back (back into a headwind ) decided to try and hit ten so took the island loop with the marathon hill add-on. Was hoping to Avg under 8's so, was happy with the 7:58.

Great noon time run! Was planning on hitting the trails after work, but Chad talked me into joining him and Shane before the storm hit. Met up at Tony's climbed up through his back yard and we were off. Chad took us on the lower trail out to the canyon overlook and then we hit the long grind up to the upper trail. Came back down the steep section and that was it. Legs felt great considering I could barely get them moving yesterday!! Trails in sweet condition.

Early morning run around Pineview with Chad, Shane, and John. Met up at the General Store and took off heading towards Huntsville. Never got in a running groove so, good run to have in the books. Weather was just about perfect. Hands froze up a couple times. Shane and John took off up trappers and Chad and I finished the Dam loop. Good Milage week for me.. Will work on building it up over the next few weeks - Hopefully.

Good and bad run this morning. Got dropped off up at the Red Rock Cafe just past the Marathon starting point. Went solo today due to scheduling conflicts. Right Calf still a little tight and tender from yesterdays run, but I thought oh well, tiger balmed it up and went for it. Forgot how nice it is to have a little downhill. Plus I was given an ultimatum to be back in under 2 hrs. Here are the miles: 7:25, 7:24, 7:17, 7:29, 7:29 (water), 7:14, 7:18, 7:19, 7:24, 7:38 (water), 7:30, 7:34, 8:33 (major headwind and calf starting to tighten up again), 8:11 Battleing headwind.

Time 1:45:45 Dist 16 Avg 7:33

Took off about 30 minutes later for a quick island loop to loosen up the leg - started feeling better toward the end. Enjoying the sun even with the wind. 2 miles: 8:27, 8:18.

Good stuff. After Broman dogged me I decided to go at it anyways. Headed up from Tony's place up the steep Big 'A' hill with Beus ext. I took it a bit to fast and I was spent pretty much the rest of the run. Had to make it a quick loop - Alex soccer game. A couple nice things... about the run leg didn't bother me with all the up's - good sign. Weather wasn't crazy hot and I ran on the new lower trail they are putting in. It will be a nice addition. Peace Out!

Early morning dreadmill run. Not sure when I'd be able to hit the trails today so I decided I  better hit it. Kept the first 5 miles between 8:27 and 8:00 and went last mile around 7:45 avg. Incline 1.0. Hoping to get in the long run tomorrow, but the weather is supposed to get ugly - maybe even snow....

Big 'A' run! in honor of those attempting the century ride down in St. George. Since I'm currently not a biker man - I got left behind! 'tis ok. Running is good for now. Decided to hit the Trappers Snowbasin Climb loop. Wasn't able to head out until later in the afternoon. The rain had stopped. but the wind was wipping. Good tail wind until the Sheep lady's house and then cross wind and head wind until I reached the top of Basin. Kept it around 8:30's to the base of Trappers - then Avg around 11:00's to the top of Basin a couple walk break's thrown in there to save the legs. Total Ascent 2,941 Descent 2,797. Most of all the Ascent was in 7 miles. Good tough run. Glad to be done! Feel Good - no pain in the calf.
