Ran with the bbk group. Did a 4.25 mile warmup. Then did 2x1.5 mile tempo runs. Then ran back to the car to get to work. It was a nice cool morning. Good for a run.

This evening my scouts were working on the Personal Fitness merit badge and I took our boys to the Bingham track.  They had to run a mile. I bet them I could run 6 laps to their 4. Only one of them beat me in the last length. It was fun! They were amazed at how I could run without stopping! They were asking me questions like how come your not breathing hard? lol What time to you get up and run? You could beat my mom when shes driving. lol Funny kids.

I went to Binghams track and met the Bbk group. We did a 3 mile warmup. Then a 1 mile pickup run then I did 6x800s with jogging in between 1 lap. My 800s were: 2.28, 2.32, 2.34, 2.35, 2.35, and 2.39. Man they wore me out. My 6th one was survival. I wished I couldve stayed longer for 2 more. That's usually when its beneficial to me even though I'm wiped out.


4:30 PM, met James Barnes at the Jordan River Park trail at 123rd and we ran the last 10 miles of the Riverton Half Marathon course together. It was freakin HOT! We saw Coach Jerry Sloan and he acknowledged us, he didnt call me by name though. I was expecting something more out of him. lol We finished 10 miles in 1:10 which is a low 7 minute mile.

Went down to Lifetime Fitness and ran with Emily and friends down there. They did close to 4 miles and then I finished off to 6. The back of my right knee was hurting and I have a strict policy of when it gets irritated, stop! lol Im so smart!

Met James at 5:30 and ran with him from his house to Butterfield Canyon. It is about 6 and a half miles up to the base. We went up the Canyon and it felt like we were battling a head wind but not too harsh. We made the turn at mile 10 and came back down and there were some campers with a fire smoking up the place. We got into a good pace downhill hitting a few 6:30 miles. Our last mile was a 6 flat mile and im glad James was there to push. I was dead. Its my last long run this year probably! YEAH! Time to gear up for SGM and concentrate on some sort of game plan.
