Lower body and core

8 miles TM.  It was one of my better runs in a long time.  I guess the week off from running helped.

I tried Pilates this morning for the first time instead of upper body weights since I need to slim down for my upcoming marathon, and I kinda liked it. 
7 mile TM run nice and easy.

6 miles TM. I was running really well for the first 4 miles while I get a little strain in my right hammy so I immediately started walking and walked the last. 2 miles. It seems mild but I'll find out tomorrow morning.

No time or energy to get in a run this evening as we were packing and getting ready to leave for Tally's wedding.

Nothing yesterday as we were traveling and doing night before wedding day family stuff. 

I had time to do a lower body and core workout this morning before all the wedding day stuff. It was a wonderful day. Tally looked so beautiful and happy.

I slept in a bit then did a little 5 mile trail run up in the mountains above John and Tonja's house. It was cloudy and much cooler than home!

10 miles with Dan up Provo Canyon. That was my longest run since my IM. I really need to start upping mileage if I'm going to run a marathon in November.

TM 7 miles. Might right hammy started tightening up after 6 miles so I walked out the seventh to loosen it up. Hopefully it feels fine tomorrow.

Pilates then 2 mile TM walk. Hammy never felt loose enough to run today. I think it will be good tomorrow.
