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 took 3 days off last week to try and get my knee better.  It didn't feel bad today, which is a good sign.  I did 13.5 miles with Paul- from my house to the rec center to the canal.  Then we hopped on pipeline trail- first time I had ever done it.  I didn't know it was there.  It was fun except we couldn't run on the pipe because it had been raining.   

I was pretty sore today and felt very sluggish, which is strange since I didn't run for 3 days.  We were going at a pretty good pace for me- in fact, I ran out of steam my last mile and went pretty slow.  But it felt good to get a nice medium run in at the start of the week.  Total time 1:42:11

10 miles up the river trail to Guinavah Malibu and back.  I felt much better than yesterday.  Up in 39:30 (7:54 pace).   I wanted to really push it on the way down, with a goal to come back 10% faster (7:06 pace), but I ended up coming back in 35:21 (7:04 pace), which was great.  Each mile was at least 10% faster coming back except for the singletrack above 2nd dam.  I had a very nice burn in my legs by the end.  I ran the last bit, from the end of the singletrack back to the parking lot (just under 2 miles), in 12:09, which is somewhere around 6:20 pace.  Nice run.

Easy 10 miles around the island pushing the baby.  Still felt fatigued- this week will be 9 miles more than any other this year.  Plan to do a medium 6-7 miles tomorrow in order to have a good long run on Saturday.

18 miles- from my house to mile 16 on TOU (5.6 miles, 42:30).  Then I turned around and ran the last 10.2 miles of the TOU course, with mile splits.

26.2- 1:29

Then 2.5 miles home.  I had hoped to be under 7:00/mile for the 10 miles, so was happy with the run. Felt very good.  I even ran into Mark Jorgenson on the way home- he was finishing a 21 miler, getting ready for Ogden Marathon.

Total time: 2:09  Now it's time to go play a few hours of frisbee!
