Personal:

I decided to join to hold myself accountable for my training and because I love learning from others running experiences.  I just started running a little over a year ago and have a lot to learn.  I work fulltime as a Manager of Telecommunications for Intermountain Healthcare and go to school online through Weber State University.  If you want to know more check out my blog: www.runningfortrevor.blogspot.com

7.5 miles easy, downtown Payson Loop.  Just a nice relaxing hour of running on a beautiful Sunday morning.  21 degrees never felt so warm!

Headed down south for a few days to see my brother and his family.  Perfect timing to flock south with the freezing weather in store for this week.  With my winter vacations I have planned I might be able to survive.

Dec 31-Jan 1:  Las Vegas

Jan 31st - Feb 4th:  California, Disneyland

Feb 17 - Feb 20th:  Pheonix Arizona, IMS Arizona half marathon

I'll be in St. George tomorrow morning so if you know of any great routes in the city there let me know.  I'm looking for 9-10 miles. :)

Remind me why I ever moved from St. George?  Aww it was lovely running in my old college town.  Started at the hotel and ran past my first apartment on campus, then up past the old house me and my sister lived in for 2 years.  Then I relived the last 3 miles of the marathon course backwards.  Yikes!  Did a little tempo on the way back down 6:35, 6:39, 6:22.  Considering this was all downhill (last 3 mi of SGM) I was a little dissapointed.  Dissapointment did not last long as I cooled down around the temple and the old hospital I used to work at.  Ahhh memories!  What a fun run and a great way to cap off the year and hit my 3,500 miles. :)

10 miles in Las Vegas.  28 degrees which is cold in Vegas but of course felt quite toasty to me.  Just did an out & back from my brothers house.  First 5 miles were all uphill and I thought I might die.  I think I literally stopped like twice just to catch my breath. haha I thought it would all be better once I turned around but quite honestly I just felt completely flat and had no energy at all.  Oh well you win some you lose some.  10 miles in 1:19 I have no idea what pace that is.  So much better than running in 0 degrees!

 -2 degrees in Payson according to my phone.  Geez Louise!  Off to the gym I drove.

25 min weights - I have turned into a noodle and had to decrease all of my normal sets by 5lbs.

9 miles on the treadmill.  2.2 mi warmup, 4 x 1 mile repeats with 800 recovery in between 6:22, 6:22, 6:18, 6:15.  1.8 mile cooldown.  I actually felt really good for this workout which was a nice change because my confidence as far as speed goes has been completely waning.

PM:  15 min elliptical.  Random thought while I was ellipticizing for 10.5 seconds that seemed like an eternity.  Is 15-20 min of easy recovery pointless?  I often do really short recovery jogs or xt after a hard morning workout because I feel like it really helps after sitting all day.  When I am not working and walking around more I do not feel it is as necessary.  But after sitting for 8-9 hours I think it really helps speed recovery.  But is 15-20 min enough or is anything less than 20 min just a waste of time?

20 min upper body weights - shoulders

8 mile recovery run on the treadmill, 63 minutes.

I am having a difficult time transitioning from junk/base mileage pace (7:25-7:50) to workout/recovery mode.  Anything faster seems forced and anything slower just seems awkward.  haha I'll figure it out!

PM:  3 miles easy.  Barely made it to 3 because my stomach was not happy.

20 minutes Strength Training - planks/pushups & bi's/tri's.  After a terrible 10 day streak of no ST I'm finally starting to get back on track and it feels good.  I'm not sure about the upper body lifting but I really do think the core work helps my running.

10 miles on the treadmill - 3.5 mile warmup (fairly fast 7:33 AP), 4.5 mile steady tempo in 29:30 (6:33 pace), 1.5 mile cool down.

I'd like to be able to hold the 6:33-6:35 pace for the Pheonix half on February 17th and although a 4.5 mile tempo isn't much I think I am on track.

Payson Canyon out & back from my house at 8am tomorrow morning (11-14 easy miles?).  The plan is to jump in my clubhouse indoor hot tub immediately after the run. :)  Let me know if you want to come and I'll send directions your way. It is very easy to find and is not that far south I promise!

11.5 miles out & back up Payson Canyon starting from my house with Christie & Jen.  -6 degrees but not really any different than the 10 degrees we ran in last Saturday.  I only really noticed it was freezing when I looked over at Christie & Jen and they're iced over faces.  haha oh and the cars that would point and laugh at us.  My watch died at 5 miles but Christie said we did 11.5 at a 7:53 pace so I'll take it.  Fun run with great company and the best part was jumping into the hot tub after the run.  Such a great way to warm up. :):)

Who wants to come to Payson and run now?  :)

PM:  30 min clubhouse elliptical.  Just easing my way back into the doubles and shooting for that 30 min mark.  Ironically I felt amazing on the elliptical tonight and like I could win some sort of olympic elliptical event or something. ha!  Must have been the diet coke and costco icecream. :)
