I have five cute kids. And I have some rockin short green racing shorts- I wear them mainly because it embarrasses my wife so much. I like ultimate frisbee, trail running, reading, and cheering for the Denver Broncos!   And I have the absolute best wife in the world.  And I used to run for the now-disbanded national Team Pearl Izumi- Ultra!

PM- Supposed to be a big workout today.  Ended up with crap.  I knew I was in trouble within the first half mile- I was lightheaded and my feet/legs felt like they were made of lead.  I still tried- 3 miles warmup, 1 mile tinman tempo (kind of).  Then met Cody and Paul at LHS track.  I was going to do 8x1000m at 5:30-5:35 pace, so my repeats needed to be 3:26-3:30.  First one was 3:36 and felt very hard.  Second one was 3:50 (6:08 pace).  I was done.  Tired, pooped, felt crappy.  I pulled the plug on the workout.  Didn't even have the energy to jog much around the track while Paul and Cody finished.  We cooled down just under 5 miles together.  Total distance was just under 11 miles for me, 1:22:30. 

Not sure why I felt so bad- I was at a conference today so ate a big, not too great lunch at noon rather than my very healthy snacking all day.  7 hours of sleep last night, which is good for me.  Whatever the reason, there was no point in forcing the workout.  I'll try to get a decent tempo run in tomorrow.

There must be some kind of conspiracy with everyone!

Sorry your workout didn't go as planned. Funny, we were all doing 1000m repeats today. You guys up north. Paul, Dave, and Clyde over in St. George and me and my lonesome in La Verkin. Do you know if anybody ever got the third place batons for Wasatch Back? Unlike Sasha, I do enjoy receiving my medals, trophies, pink ribbons, gift certificates, whatever some race wants to give me, I'll be happy to take and display.

Yeah, I think Paul has them. Or Cody.

I have the blue team's batons. I will bring yours and the Steve's down to SGM.
