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- 10 around Logan, most of them with Cody.  We would have gotten more miles except I had four (!) pit stops.  Bleh- I think that is a non-long run record for most stops.  Very nice to have someone to run with in the morning- thanks, Cody.  Don't have my watch so I have no idea how long it took, except I know we were pushing the pace a bit (some sub-7 miles).

PM- Ouch ouch ouch. I was supposed to do about 12 miles, but my achilles was painful. This was the first time it was very painful, not just tight. I hobbled through 1 mile before deciding it wasn't going to loosen up and hurt too much. Walked back to the car. Nuts. I think I'll rest tomorrow morning and re-evaluate tomorrow night. It seems that 1 hilly run per week is ok, but doing a second with only one day in between seems to set this off.

AM- After 2 days of lots of ice, plus using the trigger point massage and ultrasound that Paul was kind enough to lend me, I'm back.  I couldn't walk up stairs on Monday, but am almost pain free today (and hopefully will be tomorrow, after this run).  Ran around Idaho Falls, from Marci's parent's house to the greenbelt to the far side of Fremont park, with some loops.  13.5 miles, 1:39:05, 7:21 avg.  Felt pretty good, tired by the end.

AM- 20 miles with Jeff Shadley around Idaho Falls.  Had some stomach issues, and my legs felt tired the whole time- 1 hr into the run they felt like the end of a long run.  But, they didn't get worse, so that was good.  Had a good conversation with Jeff the whole time.  We started at 8:30, so it was hot by the end.  Finished with 3 laps around Community Park and then pushed hard the last half mile to make my legs work a bit.  Not sure how many miles I will do tomorrow. 20 miles, 2:25:01.
