Jamie had an early morning pilates class, so I decided to get one of my classic Tm runs in. 3 miles at 7:30 pace, next 7:24, 7:15, last mile at 6:49 - all with incline 1.0. Miles felt good. I remembered why I try and avoid the Tm especially with the great weather!

Great early morning run. Kept the pace nice and relaxed. I felt a little tired from boating last night, but I got some good turns in so, it was worth it. Did the Shane loop to string town route. Perfect morning conditions. First 2 miles were waking up miles around 8:45+ last two miles were around 7:40's so a lot of variation in the run.

Nice relaxed early morning run around Eden. Nothing to serious. Keeping the legs loose. Did my original loop - Shane - eden park - island loop. 3.55 miles Avg 8:27's. Hopefully the race won't be to hot tomorrow. Plus my back is a little tight from H2O skiing the other day...

Sweet Fourth of July 10k. Got to the race early put got busy talking to people instead of warming up like I would have liked to. Oh well. It was good to see some people I haven't seen for awhile. Before I knew it the race was being called to order and the gun went off.

Mile 1   7:13  I found myself about 10 people back within the first quarter mile I started talking to John Lewis about next years WBR. After the first mile I told him it was go time. He was running it with his 10 yr old boy.

Mile 2  7:11 - this is an up around the dam onto the gravel pit road. I was happy with the time - the legs were feeling good. Started passing people.

Mile 3  7:16 Still feeling good was running with 2 guys on the gravel road, make it passed them by the end of the gravel back onto highway. 3 people in front of me here. 2 girls and 1 guy. The leader was some girl that was booking - out of sight (she ended up winning the race overall).

Mile 4  7:23 Not sure what happened hit to my pace - I ran most of the mile with one of the girls that was ahead of me passed her towards the end of the mile.No sight of the guy and girl a head of me.

Mile 5 6:41 Feeling absolutely great. Legs were rolling and I catch sight of the guy ahead of me no sign of the girl. Guy was about 3/4 mile ahead.

Mile 6  6:43 Still feeling great. running alone at this point. Would have been good to have the Booth man there to push.

Mile .32 6:21 pace. Great race 2 male 3rd overall. PR in the 10k.

Great early morning run. For a few brief minutes it almost didn't happen, didn't get to sleep until late watching the trials. There are some seriously in shape people out there. Did the Shane Stake Center/Island loop. Hope it's a great start to a great week of running.

Great North Arm run! I think I lowered the time, I'll have to check Booth's initial run time. No Booth this morning, but I decided it was to good of a morning to pass up, so I went for it. Made it out to the Rocks in 19:30, So I keep pushing it. On the way back got a side stitch by the bridge - carried that with me the rest of the way back. No stoppage time though - true 1:02:50. I think breaking an hour is possible will take 7:20's or below to do it. Great goal to chase.

Awesome Wheelers canyon loop run with Booth man and Hairdog. Head up wheelers canyon then take the ice box canyon loop up to the old snowbasin road. Then bring it home down the main wheelers trail. Just over 5 miles - 48 minutes.

Did some sets on the reformer table - need to get into a groove and get rid of my old man fat!

After not making it out yesterday - I was starting to get antzy. So, I hit the North Arm loop when I got home from work. Major Heat fest. Should've brought some ice. Made it out to the rocks in 20:38 Slowed a bit on the way back...Hot!

Some sweet H2O skiing this morning on Pineview. Best water of the year - yet!

Great evening trail run up Wheelers Canyon with Booth and Shane. We went up Ice Box canyon and then added on Taylors loop out to the Green Pond Trail head and then back down the upper wheelers creek trail. The first 4 miles are basically up and up and up. Then you hit some downs with some rollers. The last 2 miles are a pretty quick down. Booth our best pace on that last mile was 5:27 - not to shabby considering the trail. Great way to end the week. Hope next week is as good.

Outside runs will probably be sparse this week with Jamie being in Hong Kong, so I decided to hit the Tm this morning. Was more fatigued from Sat evenings run then I realized. First mile felt sluggish. 8:00, 7:53, 7:46, 7:24 with last .50 under 7:00 pace. Incline 1.0.

Here's to a great week!

Was able to get a quick run in after work on the Tm while the kids cleaned the basement. I'll take what I can get. Mile 1 7:52, 7:41, 7:30, 7:11, last .51 at 6:53 pace. Incline 1.0. Hopefully will make it out on the trails tomorrow evening!

Great mid evening heat run around the Middle Fork loop. Met up with my bro Hairdog and set out. Didn't really push until the last mile. Felt good to get out and get the pavement under my feet though!

Well I decided to hit the Tm at 10:00 tonight - knowing tomorrow might be pretty hectic. First mile 7:42, 7:35, 7:24 6:58 - incline 1.0. Hopeing to get a long run in on Sat! Let's do it!

Well the need to go run and to get at least 20 miles this week motivated me to hit the Tm at 10 pm tonight... Was baking in the sun all day blocking an outside fireplace. Missed my run yesterday so it had to be done. Mile 1 8:00, 7:47, 7:24. Have a big family reunion next week and some family olympics so, next week might be crazier than this week!!!

Great morning with Jamie! We did the extended Island loop as I like to call it. Took it pretty easy -but had a great time. You can't beat running with your wife! Will try and get some more miles in tonight.

Hit Pineview for a early Morning ski after running with two of my Bro's .. Best water of the year. Storm was coming in so, only 1 other boat out and glass water. Life is Good.

Wanted to get outside this morning for a run, but Jamie had a pilates class - so I hit the Tm for a good run. Wanted to break 1000 miles for the year with this run - hard to believe that I've actually run 1000 miles this year - who would've thought. Feels pretty good! Mile 1 8:00, 7:53, 7:47, 7:41, 7:30, 7:10, last .25 at 6:40ish pace. Incline 1.0. Legs were feeling great. Upper body pretty tired from skiing yesterday, went back out last night for another ski with some friends....

A really really Hot North Arm run. Hit the North Arm after work - needed more water. Went up past the boat club to hit 3 miles and turned it around.

Great morning run! Decided to put the tunes on this morning and see what happened. Hit the Hwy and decided to take the road down to the 40 mph sign by the spill way. Just over 4 miles. Some good long rollers on this route. On the way back I decided to take the North Arm the whole way. Added a little on at the end to hit 9 miles for the run. Good times.

Well another get Froerer olympics, but another 2nd place finish in the neighborhood run. My brother in law Rob - is tuff at the mile! He went to state in High school in the distance! He only beat me by about 10 yards so the closest yet! Fun times. We didn't start the run until noon so it was near 95 degrees and rising! I did a half mile warmup and then the gun went off. Mile split 5:43. Maybe next year!

Great evening run. Worked in the yard spreading bark after work, but wanted to get something in so I did the extended Island loop. Nice and relaxed. My watch died about 2 minutes into the run, so I'm not sure on time or pace. It felt great though!

Great Wheelers Canyon run. Got home and decided to go do the Ice Box loop. Pretty hot when you get out of the shade, but the trail is great. Tried to push it a bit. Quads still a little sore from all the activities last weekend. Legs felt pretty good though.

An extremely HOT run on the North Arm trail after work. Couldn't wait for the weather to simmer down, after not getting out yesterday I was needing something. Although yesterday I was a flyer on a 3 man ski pyramid so, that was pretty fun. Hopefully will get a longer run in tomorrow or Sat.
