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!

I ran up Logan canyon today, from the start of the river trail all the way to Guinavah Malibu campground.  I felt great, with only a little soreness from the race last week.  I think it is 10.3 miles round trip, but one of you GPS guys will have to confirm this.  First 5 miles were about 7:40/mile pace.  Return trip was about 6:52/mile pace.  I really pushed it the last 2 miles and ran from the end of the singletrack to the car in 11:50, which I believe is about 6:10/mile pace.  Again, one of you GPS guys will have to tell me exactly how far it is.  Anyways, a great run.  The only bad part about the run is that the snow and mud are gone, so it wan't near as fun as last time.

I was planning to do 8 today, but my legs felt very tired the whole time and I ran out of time.  But, I still did 6 around the neighborhood pushing the kid.  I am feeling some fatigue still from the race, plus some from a pretty hard workout yesterday.  It was good to still get some miles in and be ready for a medium workout tomorrow.

Did a nice run with Paul.  I felt much  better than yesterday.  I ran to the rec center, then we ran through the Island and Sumac, the first dam, back on the canal, to the rec center, and then home.  About 7:45/mile pace or so, I would guess.  Somewhere between 11.5 to 12 miles.  Nice to run with someone and plan our races for the year.

Very good workout today.  I hadn't run more than 15 miles yet this year, and really wanted to get in a good 16 today.  I didn't drink enough during the day (dehydrated) and ran in the afternoon (i.e. rather warm), but still had a good run.  I ran up Blacksmith Fork canyon, from mile 13 of TOU up to mile 5 and back.  As a result, I have my splits.  I wanted to run ~7:45/mile uphill and ~7:00/mile downhill.  Here are the results:

Mile 1- 7:29

2- 7:36

3- 7:22

4- 7:19

5- 7:19

6- 7:43 (lots of up)

7- 7:17

8- 7:33

9- 7:00

10- 7:13

11- 7:02

12- 6:48

13- 6:55

14- 7:06

15- 6:38

16- 6:41

I could tell I was dehydrated the whole run.  My legs were absolutely burning for the last 4 miles, but I was glad to pull off a few sub 6:45 at the end.  I'm not sure I could have run even 1 mile more.  Uphill was good but tiring, and downhill was just tiring.  There was a nasty headwind on the way down which added to my fatigue.  But it was a good run supposing my short season thus far.  With 5 more months of hard training, I should be in good shape for the fall marathons.

Total: 1:55:10  Ave 7:25/mile up, 6:55/mile down.
