Personal:

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!

No run today- I'm getting real tired of not getting home until 8 pm and then trying to get in 8+ miles in the dark and cold.  After very little sleep last week (4-5 hours/night), I was in bed by 9:30 tonight, asleep by 10.  Probably the earliest I have gone to bed in years.  Felt great.  Still plan to get in my 50 miles this week, though it will be a lot harder (especially since I have to paint a few rooms in the house tonight).  Slow and steady- I'm very carefully increasing my mileage so that I have about a month of 70-80 miles/week before Ogden, which should lead into a good summer.  I'm just looking forward to running in light and warmer weather.

Treadmill again.  Didn't want to run in the breezy cold.  Wanted to get a bit of an increasing tempo.  First mile was ~7:10, then next 4 were 6:47 pace.  After a bathroom break, it was time to get to work.  Next 4 miles were at 6:28 pace, then did 3/4 mile at 6:00 pace, with final 1/4 mile at 5:00 pace.  Felt good, though I was definitely working by the end.  I had an industrial fan blowing right on me the whole time, so I stayed nice and cool.  Did 1 more mile cool down, which means I have done 26 miles on the treadmill between my last 2 runs.  I know that is a record for me.  Still not a fan of the treadmill, but it isn't so bad if there is a good game on and there is a big fan nearby.

8:45 pm when I got to the rec center, and it closes at 9:30.  Did 4 quick miles on the treadmill (6:30 pace), then had to go to the indoor track.  13.5 laps per mile, with sharp turns.  Did ~6:45 pace after that for about 3 more miles, then did 1 more at home.  8 total.

7 miles around River Heights and Logan at 7:15 pace.  First run before 7 pm in a long time- it actually was light until almost the end of the run!  It was great!

Met Jeff in Idaho Falls for an early morning run. Temp was cold (~16 deg F) but not too bad, except when running into the wind (well, breeze). My hands are cold enough right now that typing is hard. Ran 1 mile to the park, did about 8 miles with Jeff on the roads, then added on 4 more winding around some parks and neighborhoods. Plus, I was able to check my Jon internal calibration against his Garmin- I felt like we were doing 7:35-7:40 miles, his watch had us at 7:36 average. Dead on. Seemed to get colder once I dropped Jeff off, but I'm sure it was because I didn't have anyone to talk with anymore so my body starting finding other things to pay attention to, er, to which to pay attention.

Thanks for the run, Jeff, and keep up the good work.

I wanted 50 miles this week, but ended up with 40 in 4 days.  Hopefully my life will calm down a bit soon so I can have more time to run.  55 miles for the next 2 weeks.
