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!

PM- Since I didn't get my planned 50 miles on Saturday, I figured I should do a long run today.  I started at 2 pm and ran from my house to First Dam, then BST to Green Canyon.  Then I ran 6 miles up GC, just over 1 mile past the upper parking lot.  I started to hit big patches of snow just as I turned around.  Lots of bikers in the canyon.  Then I ran down GC and over to Paul's house via the canal.  I realized around mile 12 that my legs were more fatigued than previously suspected from the race on Sat, plus I bonked around mile 17.  But, I still averaged 7:10-7:30 for the last 6 miles despite feeling very tired.  Finished at Paul's for a nice Memorial Day BBQ with the Peterson's and the Campbell's.  I wore my new Nathan hydration pack today and it worked great.  Good investment.

25 miles total, 3:19:55 (7:60 avg according to my Garmin Training Center, which I guess means 8:00 pace), with just over 3000 ft climbing and lots of trails.  Not a bad day.  I plan to really push the mileage the next few weeks, especially since I don't have to recover from my ultra last Sat.

PM- 8.5 on Providence Hills loop with Cody at 7:37 avg pace, then 4 on PW with Marci and the kids at 10:00 avg pace.  Tired.  The 7:37 with Cody was easier than the 4 with Marci and the stroller, though.

PM- BW.  Ran from Planet Fitness up Center Street- that is a steep street that isn't really a warmup, more of a workout by itself.  Anyways, when I got to Deer Fence I started a 10 mile tempo that took me 5 miles along the very hilly trail to Millville Canyon, then 5 miles on the road heading back, mainly on TOU course.  Splits on Deer Fence were 6:49, 7:20, 7:46 (some of the hills are darn steep on this trail), 6:29, 6:46.  Once on the road heading north I discovered there was a strong headwind that slowed me at least 10+ seconds/mile. Road splits were 6:09, 6:19, 6:17, 6:21, and a final slow mile of 6:33.  I was pooped by mile 7 and really struggled to the end.  But, I got it done.  Total was 15.81 miles in 1:56:24 (7:22 avg) with 1250 ft climbing.  Glad that one is over.

Pocatello "results" are posted- looks like I was the 12th or 13th person into the major aid, and I was the first person to DNF, though someone just 6 minutes behind dropped, too.  Cody finished 10th, just 1 minute behind AJW and Matt Hart.  Awesome.

AM- 8 crosstraining.  Cause the niggles in my hips and legs really needed a break from pounding the pavement.

AM- Idaho Falls.  Ran up Sunnyside towards the river, when I spotted a canal with a dirt trail alongside it just past Rollandet.  I ran along the network of trails/canals out into the farmland for the rest of the run- much better than pavement, that's for sure.  Jeff, I'm surprised you never run along these trails.  7:35-7:50's on the way out into a brisk headwind, 7:05-7:25's on the way back, with increasing pace.  Last 0.5 mile was at 6:25 pace.  17.5 miles total in 2:10:27 (7:27 avg).

My legs have the dull yet satisfying ache that let me know this is my highest weekly mileage yet this year.  Lots of niggles, but nothing that seems too serious.
