Slept in a bit today then ran 3 solo before meeting up with Kim for 5 more. Warm today - high 30's - and overcast. Nice to be able to wear shorts! Pretty nice for January although we did get rained on for a few minutes. This week is a RRR week for me (Rest/Recovery/Reduced-miles) to give my body/legs a break before officially beginning the 20-week marathon training cycle leading up to UVM.

I've been fortunate to have built a real nice winter running base and I'm feeling healthy. Nice to already have the base and have the body used to 60 mile weeks before starting the marathon training, as I should be able to start adding in the speed without also having to worry about adding mileage. Hopefully all will go well between now and June.

6 AM: Ran a little over 4 miles with Kim on a peaceful morning. Temps in the high 20's.

9:12/131

11 AM: Ran 3 more at work, my short relaxing run. Temps in the 30's with a little sunshine, felt good. I was very pleased to see my HR stay mostly in the 140's while running pace was in the 7's. This doesn't happen very often for me and I hope it's a sign of good things to come.

Working at home today so did hill workout around 11am. After warmup run with Kim I did the hill stuff solo. Pretty warm again in the mid-to-upper 30's but about 1/2 way thru the workout the wind kicked up and made things not as fun. Looking forward to heading down to St George on Friday. Forecast for the Saturday race is looking dandy.

Nice little 10-miler solo in the early morning. This will be my long run for the week. Felt good. Ran the Krishna temple loop with a humungous moon to light the way. Moon was nice for the run, but made my sleep not so good since it made the room so bright. Now off to STG for some sunshine and warmer temps. Kim is going to rock her 5K! Good luck to everyone racing!

Ran with Kim a bit warming up for her soon-to-be record-crushing-PR-5K. She cruised to a massive PR 5K of 22:22!! Sweet!! Just goes to show that work will work when wishy washy wishing won't!

I tweaked my back a bit yesterday so I'm taking it easy today. Beautiful weather and January temps (50-60) in St. George. Wish we didn't have to go back today.
