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

2 mile warmup and then 3 x 2 miles @10k pace.  My goal was not to run this all out but to hit around 13:45 for each set.  I did the same loop three times and started each first mile on a gradual incline.  I am always trying to figure out negative split pacing and this seemed like a good idea (6:56, 6:41), (6:55, 6:38), (6:46, 6:37).  I did a full mile rest inbetween each set which is probably way too much but it kept things consistant.  I must not have slowed down too much for the rest periods because my overall pace for the run was 7:26

Considering I did not feel like running at all this morning this turned out to be a pretty good workout.

PM:  my 4:30 meeting got cancelled today so I took it as a sign I should probably go running.  4.5 miles easy.  hot!  Legs were toast, 8:15 pace.  Felt much slower than that.

40 minutes weights at the gym

Ran from the gym to the river trail and then back to the gym.  Easy 8.2 miles.  1 mile on the treadmill when I got back to the gym to catch up on the news.  Legs were tired this morning so I kept it nice and easy.

PM:  2 miles easy.

Track workout!!  I'm still feeling a bit fatigued from Monday's hard tempo and I am planning another MP tempo for Friday so I knew I needed to keep the workout today relatively simple.

Decided on 15 x 200's with equal floating active recovery.  I kept the 200's between 42-45 seconds and felt good.  I really enjoyed this workout and feel like it wasn't too taxing on my body which was what I needed.

PM:  3 miles easy, felt good which is a good sign that I didn't push the workout this morning.

30 minutes weights working biceps/triceps & pushups/planks.  110 pushups today.  Amazing how when I first started doing pushups I could barely handle 10 and now I'm up to 110!  Woohoo!

7.5 miles on the treadmill, 1.5-2.5% incline.  Easy miles while watching the news.  My right shin always seems to bother me when running on the treadmill.  It does not bother me at all when running outside.  weird!  Maybe I am changing my form or something who knows but for the time being I think I'll just avoid the treadmill.  I only ran on it today because I forgot my garmin which is a lame excuse.  Should have just ran outside for 60 minutes.  Why is it so hard to run without knowing how far you go?

PM:  2.5 miles easy.  legs felt tired.  I am planning a LR tomorrow so hopefully they hold up.

I debated about where to do this LR but ultimetely decided just to run up the dam canyon again.  I didn't go up quite as far as last Saturday but just a little ways passed the park.  First 9 miles were easy but not too easy just my regular 8 minute pace and then I started the 8 mile tempo. 7:01, 7:03, 7:06, 7:09, 7:05, 7:08, 7:16, 7:01.  Hobbled my way up over the overpass and back to my house.  I was freaking toast!  I had time to add on and make this a 20 mile run but ultimetely decided my body would benefit more from a 10 minute icebath than an extra 1.5 miles.  Overal AP for then entire 18.5 was 7:36.  I'd by lying if I didn't say this was one of the toughest runs I've done in awhile.  I was struggling the last couple of tempo miles.  The wind was picking up and I was sweating so bad I ripped my freaking shirt off.  Wearing a long sleeve shirt was a dumb idea.

Glad to have this one out of the way and I even made it to work on time. :)

Oh also I wanted to mention that around mile 15 the bottoms of my feet started to feel like they were on FIRE!  Much like at Boston but it was not hot enough today for this to happen?  It hurt and did not go away until I slowed down for the cool down.  Anyone have any ideas what this might be from?

AM:  7.5 miles easy with Kira & Lily.  Halfway through we picked up Jason and Jessica.  What a fun morning and thanks ladies for running with me at 6am. :)

PM:  4.5 miles after I got back from babysitting.  Wore the new Kinvaras and loved them.  I felt like I was running way slow but somehow paced 7:36.
