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!

My knee was rather painful all day yesterday, so I iced it during the day yesterday and today.  It was much better today, I could only feel anything when I went up or down stairs.  I did feel it my whole run- not really a pain, but more a sensation and soreness below and behind my kneecap.  Anyways, my run was a rather slow 12 miles or so at 8:00 pace with the jogging stroller.  Slight wind the whole way home, which left me pretty tired by the end.  Long run pushing the kid.  Planet walk, then 400 W up to 1400 N, then worked my way home.  Planning on 77 miles this week, most since Aug last year.

AM- 6 miles around town.  I saw a very big, slow, bright, and very green shooting star this morning.  I have seen lots of shooting stars, but never a bright green one.  Kind of pretty.  44:05, 6 miles.

PM- About 4 miles with Cody and his kids, then 5 miles with Paul on the LHS grass, then just under 2 miles home.  Unknown pace, but knee still hurt a bit and legs were still sluggish.

AM- 6 miles on the grass at the golf course.  Hoping running on grass helps my knee stop hurting.  Nice morning run temp- ~43 deg.  Easy day today, so no PM run.

AM- 6 miles, mostly on the Willow Park baseball fields.  Not bad weather, actually- ~30-35 deg, slight wind, no precipitation.  When I left for work 30 minutes later, there was a dang good snowstorm raging.  Welcome to May, everyone.

PM- Planned to run 10 miles in the mountains, but decided last minute to run around town with the kid.  Big mistake.  We bundled her up cause it was only 45 deg but she got real ornery.  Ran about 4 miles, then she got out to look at some ducks and really didn't want to get back in the stroller.  Did 3 more miles, then she got out to go down some slides for 10 minutes.  Again, she really didn't want to get back in the stroller.  I ended up cutting my run about 1 mile short due to excessive whining from the kid.  I don't think I'm going to take her again for a while.

Long run today. Ran 2 miles at ~7 min pace to Paul's house, where I met Logan (not Paul). We ran most of the first leg of WBR, then ran back to Paul's house- just over 7 miles at around 7:10 pace or so. Ran around the block with Logan, Paul, and his dog, then ran to Logan High and did Paul's endless grass loop- about 7.5 miles or so at ~7:25 pace. Then ran 3.5 miles home at 7:00 pace or so. Total- ~20 miles, 2:23:29. Felt pretty good, tired and hungry by the end.

This is my highest mileage week since Aug last year, and only my 3rd week of 70+ miles this year. I'm planning on 65-70 miles next week, then a one week mini taper for Ogden, the get back up above 70 mpw as soon as I can afterwards. In related news, I weighed myself after my run (I usually weigh before) and after breakfast, and was down below 140.  Lowest in a long time- I guess this is my racing weight now, though I don't want to go much lower.  Which means I get to eat more!  Yeah!
