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!

Tinman tempo today.  Ran to Paul's house, ran with him to Cody's house, then ran up to the landfill loop, dropping Paul off in the process.  After potty break #1, it was time for our tempo.  Goal pace was 6:15-6:20.  Cody informed me we were doing 7.  Started off ~6:12 pace, then 6:14, then 6:13, then 6:21 (uphill a bit and into a brisk breeze).  At this point, I decided we should actually do two tempo runs with a full recovery in between.  As Cody was resting and stretching, I did my best to be invisible in a ditch behind a tree in the middle of a bunch of houses during potty break #2.  Then we were off again- 6:11.  I thought we had only done 4, but Cody kept track and told me we only had 2 more.  The last 2 were 6:09 and ~6:04.  Then we ran home via planetwalk, with me making potty break #3 on the way (couldn't make it the last 1/2 mile home).  Very tired and sore afterwards.  I thought it was ~14.5 miles, but mapmyrun put it at 14.8, which rounds up to 15.  1:36:16, 6:30 pace avg.  Good run, but sore after in my right foot and left calf.

Finished off with all you could eat pizza courtesy of the Drapers.  Yummy.

5 easy miles, 6:50-7:00 pace.  Felt tired and sluggish.  2 potty breaks.  I gotta change my diet.

Had a cold sneaking up on me since Tuesday and it smacked me real hard today.  I normally run with colds, but I also felt real hot, like I had a fever, then started getting the chills.  No fun at all.  I have been getting 7+ hours of sleep for 2 nights, now (3 if I go to bed tonight by 10 pm), which is good for me.  Should be back in action tomorrow.

Got home early from work which gave me a bit more time before I had to leave.  Snuck in 7 (and change) miles in 48 min.  6:45 avg.

Ran 3 miles, winding my way to Paul's house.  I had planned on running 20 miles, but Marci reminded me I had to be home at 9 to watch the kid.  Met James and Logan at Paul's house, too- first time I had seen James in a month or so, and first time to see Logan since SGM, I think.  Good to see them.  Did a very easy Providence Hills loop.  9.5 miles total.  Plan to do an evening run to get my whole 20 miles today.  Long runs aren't as good if you break them up, but that isn't half bad right now supposing I am sick and this will be easier on my body.  Lots of talking.  Maybe I should move to St. George to join a bigger running group.  Nah, never mind.
