What is up? This blog will help you out a ton. We will for sure get together this winter and run together. Glad to have you on the blog now.

From Nick on Mon, Oct 29, 2007 at 19:32:36

Logan! go for it man. We'll be watching. I told Linda to hide some power gels for you along Central Park! Let's run anytime.

Keep up the good work. Slowly build your mileage per week up and then you can work on the speed later. We need to get Chad and Shane on the blog as well.

From ArmyRunner on Tue, Oct 30, 2007 at 10:26:49

Welcome to the blog. It sounds like your a friend of Logan's so I'm sure he has told you all about the blog. Anyway, enjoy, the FRB is a great running community that usually results in getting faster as well.

Any relation to Josh Froerer?

From Nick on Wed, Oct 31, 2007 at 08:10:46

Thanks for the encouragement. I talked to Chad and Shane - we'll get them going. Josh is my brother. Good luck Logan.

6 good miles. Chad and I ran some of the Shore line trails above the east bench in Ogden. Chad has introduced me to a killer hill about 2.5 miles into this run.....aughhh. We ended up doing a 7:46 /mile pace. Not to bad considering....

We need to get together this Saturday and go for a run. I was thinking an 8-10 miler. I am taking this week kind of easy and then will revamp the training starting next week. Maybe Chad and Shane would like to go. Let me know what you think.

From Nick on Mon, Nov 05, 2007 at 20:31:27

Logan - I would love it.. the gottcha will be the little ones Jamie is in San Diego until Sunday... What are you plans on Thursday around 3:45 - 4:00 for an ogden bench 6 miler....I'll see what I can do for Sat.

Thursday sounds good. 3:30 is fine. Let me know where we need to meet at. I was thinking earlier if at all possible for Saturday. 8AM or 9AM. 8-10 miles alright? It won't be at a very fast pace.

From Nick on Tue, Nov 06, 2007 at 11:25:56

Logan - meet at the top of 29th at 3:30 on Thursday. I'll get you an update on Saturday on Thursday. Give me a call if you have any questions.... How's the body feeling?

From Logan on Tue, Nov 06, 2007 at 13:51:06

See you Thursday. I put a post on Chad's blog about Saturday. Later in the afternoon will be better now (4:45ish). I have a conference for school that goes all day. It might get done earlier though. It just depends. I will see you Thursday and we can talk more.

Did some laps on the Ben Lomond High School track after work. Wanted to get some split times I ended up doing about an 8 minute warm up mile and then hit a 7:12 2nd mile / 7:03 3rd mile and then cooled down with another 8 minute 4th mile. The 2nd and 3rd miles were feeling good. Could have pushed them a little bit more, but lunch was feeling heavy....

Ah... Ran 6 miles on Ogden's East Bench with a local legend. Logan. It was a good run. The hill at mile 2 about did me in. Had to stop half way up for a little pit stop. Other than that it felt really good. Other than slowing Logan down. Looking forward to some more runs together.

sounds like a good one how'd the Legend like the run? the one i did today was good, ultimately we can link it to the one you did and probably make it a solid 70-75min. run, with some good terrain a bit of everything!

Went to Ben Lomond Track after work for some speed work. I got there and found out it was chilly...but I pressed forward. I ended up doing 4 X 1600's with a 400 walk in between the miles.

1- 8:36

4- 6:43

Total distance was 4.12 after the warm up and cooldown. Missed you Chad and Logan!

From Logan on Thu, Nov 15, 2007 at 22:03:06

Good workout. Why was the first one much slower than the rest? Also, I would suggest jogging between each one instead of walking. It seems to give me a better workout when I do this. Just a suggestion!

From Nick on Fri, Nov 16, 2007 at 14:12:11

Good suggestion.. I think the first one was because I used it as my warm up mile and my body temp was declining..and the black crows were circling. Thanks for the suggestions.

Good Run with the Boothman! We went up the rainbow trail to the east bench and up strong canyon and back down. 7.27 miles avg 8:48 with a couple big climbs. 4 of the miles 7:33 or less pace. Good Stuff. A little stiff still from the pilates workout. Not much of a recovery run. will take tomorrow off.

Got out to a good morning run with Chad B. and his running mate Oakley. We hit the North Arm trail and then cut back across Pienview. We split around the 4 mile mark and I looped up past the Eden Cemetery. I ran into Shane M. the current OV 50 champ and finished the last 1.5 with him. Good week of running for me. Hoping to keep it up going into Thanksgiving next week. Total run time 52.53.

I have a monthly membership. So unless I stop it it will just renew every month. The new gym at the junction is pretty nice. After a run it's good to go sit in the spa or steam room or Sauna.... We're hitting the trail tomorrow. You should think about it.

Went for a great run after work with Chad. We did the Rainbow gardens loop up around strong canyon. There were still some slick parts due to the storm the other day. It was the inaugural run with the garmin 205 (early christmas gift - they are on sale at rei.com) it worked and felt great.

You will love the Garmin. I promise. Wish I could have come and run with you guys but I am down in California with the cross country team at the Foot Locker race.

Well - I woke up feeling much better than yesterday. I think I had a touch of the gumbo. So, I decided to try a North Arm trail run. The path was a bit icy, but awesome nonetheless. I ended up running a 44:43. I take it considering how I feel. Still a bit queezy.

Went on a wet semi dark beat down trail run with Chad Logan and Shane. Time 1:12. I was hopping I was more recovered from my case of the goo on Tuesday, but as we ascended Strong canyon I was quick to find my grasping for air and spewing mucus from my facial orafics told me different. It was a fun run though. I should probably take it  easy the next couple of days.After we finished Logan put on his gloves and headed off into the darkness..

Let's get caught up on yesterday... I didn't get a run in, but was able to spend the day up at snowbasin! It was sweet. It snowed most of the day, so the runs just kept getting better.

This morning I went to pilates and had a great work out. As Chad and I were driving over there up in North Fork it looked like they got about a foot of snow last night.
