I had a dream last night that I was riding in a 4-seater airplane with Burt at the helm. Needless to say, as soon as he flew close to the ground, I jumped out to safety. I'm not sure why Burt keeps showing up in my dreams. Must have something to do with race day.

I ran the Race for Remembrance 5K in American Fork, UT today. It was free! Yet it still was marked well, had police support, race numbers, etc. It just didn't have all the unnecessary extra stuff like chip timing, lots of SWAG, treats, etc. My kind of race! There were lots of other people there, maybe 300-400 at least. Anyway, I was happy with my run. I ran 18:35. A couple people measured it at at 2.98 miles, so I won't count it as a PR, but I was happy to see that I ran about as fast as last year in May. For most of the race, I could see Allie about 75 yards in front of me. I tried to catch her during the whole race and didn't quite make it. I'll have to check her blog for splits. I'm really happy to have run this time at this point in my training, and it gives me hope that I can run a PR on July 4.

Did a tempo run on the treadmill. Made it 5.73 miles in 42 minutes. Not as good as I've done recently. Oh well. Also put in a warmup and cooldown.

Did the interval workout on the treadmill. Struggled toward the end. I could have pushed through, but I chose not to. This is my third hard day in a row, so I didn't want to push too hard. Ran 5.55 miles in 42 minutes. First time in a long time I have had three solid running days in a row. And I'm already beyond 20 miles for the week.

Ran a nice little tempo run. There's nothing on TV most of the time. I need to hook it up to my computer soon.

Ran six miles at 7:30 pace on the treadmill. Felt good at first but struggled through the last two miles. Then I got a drank and ate a snack and ran other six miles at about 9:30 pace. I wasn't feeling good at all. I think I was low on blood sugar.

I watched the Pre Classic while running. I love watching track and field. Fun to see a U.S. high school record in the two mile and some other good races.

I reached my goal of 40 miles for the week. The last time I ran that many miles in a week was March 2010. Time to saddle up for some bigger miles. My commitment to myself for next week is 42 miles. Not a big bump. Similar to this week. I don't want to increase mileage too quickly.
