am--4.75 Ran a few laps around the track during the run-a-thon then finished up to Harts and back. The run-a-thon was a blast, but now I'm paying for it. So tired.

am--4 Woke up uber-congested, so I let the body rest for a while longer before I went out on a short trail run. Was a grind. So it goes when you're only able to breathe through half a nostril and an eyeball. I hope the kids' workout went well today.

am--7 Did a tough workout--4 x 30 sec. w/ 1 min. recovery, 3 x 800 w/ 2 min. recovery, and 3 x 1000 w/ 1 min. recovery. The progression through the intervals was unexpected and difficult. The 800s may have been a bit slack, but the 1000s were very honest. All of this was sandwiched between PH warm and cool. 

pm--3.25 Nice easy miles to loosen up the legs.

pm--5 Warm-up and cool-down w/ the girls at the time trial. I added a mile after that. I fully intended to add a few more when I got home, but I ended up carry alcohol out of a gas station.

pm--3.5 Hot nails w/ the girls. I'm getting pumped for Friday's race.

am--5.25 Truncated usual morning run. It was very nice out. I'm not complaining when I say that it was almost chilly. The other interesting part of the run was a bright bit of smoke or exhaust in the air shaped like the diminishing zig-zags we all used to put under important words in our middle-school years. Not sure what it was. 

pm--4 Run to Sandberg's pond--that's for  you Baggs--and finished off w/ 4 x 200. I was flat as flat can be today on the 200s.

am--5 PH x 2 w/ some running in the middle while the girls did Michigans and DI after it all was over. Nice morning. 

pm--4 We made up a run that purty much went up and down 2450 and finished w/ 2 x 400--1:28 and 1:25. It's still fairly warm out in the afternoons, but the mornings promise something different.

am--5.25 I ran around the Wahsatch Rendezvous course a few times and then a bit more to spectate. We had a great weekend @ the races. The season is working toward the fun stuff--region and state.

am--6.25 The beastly track workout--4 x 30 sec., 3 x 800, and 2 x 1,000. The 4 x 30 sec. felt ok. I was able to stretch the legs a bit. The 800s were blah--all around 3:10ish. The 1,000s were bad and decent--4:15 and 3:58. PH warm and cool. On the coaching tip, the girls ran well. They seem to all be improving. It's going to be a throw-down at region in 2 weeks. 

pm--4.5 Green Springs at a suprisingly good pace, followed by 4 x stadium hills and 4 x 100. Good day in the end.

pm--4.5 Last night, I went to bed at 8:30, was a little restless, and hit the snooze one too many times. I didn't wake up for a run. So, I'll be hitting something short later. This afternoon we did the traditional Sandbergs, followed by 4 x 200--39, 39, 37, 38. I actually kind of like these. 

pm2--3 For Jake T, listening to my favorite Canadian Americana band, The Band.

am--7 Swiss Days w/ Sadie. I wanted to see if I could get her to run the whole time. She did, right @ a 10:00 pace. I added a few more miles up around the high school, dropping down into the 7:00s. It felt nice. The weather was perfect this morning.
