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

25 minutes weights.  Worked biceps and did my pushups and planks

12 minutes elliptical while waiting for a treadmill.

7 miles on the treadmill a little faster than normal because I was running out of time. 

PM:  2 miles with the pup.  She did not feel like running fast and either did her owner. :) 8:45 pace

25 minutes weights, worked chest and did 60 weighted sit-ups.

Big workout this morning.  3 x 2mi at 10k pace.

I warmed up for 10 minutes (1.2mi) @ 8:34 pace and then switched treadmills and went straight into the workout. 

First set: 13:55 (6:58 pace) - I eased into this one and felt really, really good.

1mi RI (8:34 pace)

Second set:  13:42 (6:54 pace) - felt good but dropped the treadmill down to 0% for the last .25 mile to aid the increased speed.

1mi RI (8:34 pace)

Last set:  13:32 (6:48 pace) - felt good and again dropped the treadmill incline down to 0% for the last .85 of the second mile and bumped up the speed a notch each .2 miles eventually finishing at 6:19 pace.

Total time:  69:30/7:28 pace

Sorry if all the detail is annoying but I want to make sure I have this recorded so that I KNOW I am capable of these paces. :)

This time of year (Jan-Feb) always takes a toll on my workout routine.  It is officially league play for basketball and my Dad's team switched up to a SLC region this year which means even more travel and more late nights.  I just do not do well on little sleep. 

I slept in a bit and did some weights at home.  100 pushups and a little bit of shoulders with my 10lb weights.  Then hit the gym for 7 miles at an easy pace.  I have a small twinge in my right shin so I kept it really slow today.  I was half asleep and felt pretty fatigued but I put the miles in. :) 

Great post from Cecily Lew (winner of the des news 10k) about dealing with injury.  http://www.rerunrunning.com/2012/01/looking-for-positives/#comment-12716

PM:  2 miles nice and easy with the pup.  8:41 pace.  Only two doggie stops today. :)

Worked triceps for 20 minutes

7.5 miles on the treadmill went like this:

15 minute warmup at 8ish pace

5x1 minute hill climbs with equal recover at 5% grade 7:54 pace

15 minutes at half marathon tempo pace (7:14)

5 minute rest 8min pace

5x1 minute hills climbs with equal recovery at 3.5-4% grade 7:54 pace.  Holy crap I was dying by this set.  This was an awesome workout!

5 minute cooldown.

PM:  17 minutes on the elliptical.

Slept in incredibly late this morning.  My body seems to be exahusted this week for some reason.  Luckily I don't have to be to work until 9 on Fridays.

I did my 100 pushups and then ran 8 miles.  My right shin is really bugging me.  Very similar to the pain I experienced after the Nebo half.  Whenever I increased the speed at all today the pain increased so I kept it pretty easy.  I am thinking/hoping that if I baby it for a few days it will be fine.  I was planning to head up north to run with Andrea and the group tomorrow but I'm not sure it's in my best interest to push the pace at all right now.

If anyone is interested in doing a slow LR with a gimp tomorrow let me know. :)

Decided to run with my old training group from last Spring.  I was quickly reminded of how hilly and windy Mapleton is.  We did an 8 mile loop around Mapleton and then ran 2 miles up Hobble Creek Canyon.  I never thought I would be running up HC in mid January.  It was icy, windy, and cold brrrr but a good adventure.  Turned around and headed back to my friend Pam's house.  Overall it was a good run but my body definitely feels fatigued this week.  AP was 8:27.  My shin held up pretty good and only bothered me when I surged or was running uphill.

Went to the gym afterwards to do weights.  I was going to run 2 more mi on the treadmill after I lifted to get 16 in for the day but I was exhausted and just saw no sense in pushing myself just for the number.  I kind of feel like everyone is ahead of me with Boston training but hopefully I can start to increase my endurance in February.  No need to push to much now and end up with an injury.
