I ran out to the Big Blue mailbox on Salem Canal road and then back to the house, pace felt okay but I wasn't real strong. My average pace was 8:26 with a total time of 43:53, I will be doing a little taper this week. It will go 5,4,3,2, rest, race. I'm running the Utah Valley Half marathon on Saturday so that will be the plan. I finished up with some upper body weight training and then some push-ups.

See you tomorrow.

I ran out to the T and then back to the house via canal road, I felt decent but I'm still not sure what kind of shape I am in for the race on Saturday. I guess time will tell. My average pace was upbeat at 8:24 with a total time of 29:00, I finished up with my upper body weight training and then some push-ups.

See ya tomorrow.

Utah Valley Half marathon this morning. I felt okay through about 9 miles and then the wheels kind of came off, I was battling stomach issues and a side ache which was kind of weird. I have never had that much in a race but it sucked, my goal was 1:45 but I missed it by a bit. I did gut out the last few miles when I saw that I could beat the 1:50 guy so I stayed with it, all in all not a bad race. I just need to start getting more mileage in, my average pace was 8:16.
