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!

AM- figured I should do some XT to lose weight, as I can't run as much as I'd like. 8

Lunch- 10.5 miles. The weather will be warm this week- high increasing every day till Sat will be in the 90's and low in the 70's. Good Western States heat training. I also have the heat on in my car, and it got so hot my phone overheated.

PM- I wanted to try to toughen my quads for Western plus do a long run as I won't get one this weekend. Drove to Paris Mtn and run up to Kanuga, where there is a 1.12 mile long hill that drops just over 400 ft. I ran down it somewhat hard then back up, 4 times. Down times were 8:48, 8:39, 8:20, 8:06. Aaron, Lynn, and Seth showed up near the end and joined me for the last one. After I finished, we had 5.5 miles back to the car but I was absolutely dead. I had developed a sore throat and felt generally a bit sick for the past day and this workout really killed me. Honestly, those miles felt like mile 80 of an ultra, which had me worried. We finished and I collapsed on the ground for a few minutes. By the time I got home, I was shivering uncontrollably and had a fever. I'm home sick today. At least I know why I felt so bad at the end there.

The run was 18 miles in 2:55 with 2500 ft climb. Now to rest and get better.

PM- no run yesterday as I hardly got out of bed sick. Went to work today and finally made it for a little run at the end of the day. Wasn't sure I'd have the energy for any miles but aimed for 4. Felt good enough to do 6, then pulled the plug.
