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!

Ran a bit at first dam, then met Cody and drove to right hand fork.  We did the Ricks Canyon to Steel Hollow loop- about 12 miles with 2200 feet up and 2200 feet down (or so).  Didn't push it on the uphill, but were still working (Cody commented that our 9:30/mile pace up had him at the same heartrate as our 7:00/mile pace run last Saturday).  Ran down Steel Hollow, which is an awesome downhill singletrack.  We were moving faster but it was getting dark so eventually slowed down.  Plus I twisted my ankle pretty good, which gave me a little scare.  Saw lots of cows, 1 deer, no people.  Good run.  Definitely the most dirty/dusty legs of the year.  Time 1:43:30- effort was same as 14 miles, but run was warmup plus 11.8.

Ascend- 72.

I was supposed to run 14 miles after work, but it didn't work out.  Between 95 degree heat and a sore ankle from yesterday, I decided a few miles into my run to switch with tomorrow's schedule and make today the easy day.  Planet walk, 7 miles.  Now we will just see if I can get 2 medium runs in tomorrow.

Ran with Paul from rec center up past the nature center and back.  I don't know what I ate, but after having to take my third port-a-potty stop in 5 miles, Paul couldn't wait and finished ahead of me.  I added some extra miles looping through the island and around Logan High.  We watched the mountains burning.  Ankle hurt pretty bad- I'll have to ice it tomorrow during work.

1.5 mile warm up, then ran the length of the canal 3 times (1.33 miles each time) as a tempo run with only a few seconds rest in between each one.  First one was 8:17 (6:13 pace), second one was 8:25 (6:19 pace- tired), third one was 7:55 (5:56 pace).  Tired by the end.  Then I ran about 4-5 miles or so with Cody, drove to campus, and ran another couple miles around USU.  Finished with an awesome game of frisbee- very fun with lots of running/cross training.

Got up early and did a few miles.  Then James came and we went to Garland for a 10k.  Couple miles warm up, then the race.  It was an out-and-back with one highway underpass then gradual uphill to the turn around and slight headwind on a windy farm road.  Mile 1 was 5:43, 3.1 was 18:30, which was rather slow- about a minute slower than I hoped.  I didn't feel like I had much spring in my step but was otherwise ok.  James and I led for the first half with one guy right behind us.  He made a surge at the turn around and pulled away from James and I a bit.  James pulled about 5 seconds ahead with 1.5 miles to go.  I kicked a bit early and pulled to within a second of him but then he picked it up a bit and took second.  Came back in 17:47 (last mile was 5:43- same time as first mile, even though the first mile has a big downhill and the last mile has big uphill).  I finished in 3rd, just a few seconds behind James.  The guy who won is the same high school guy who beat me at the Clarkston 3 miler earlier this year, and I beat him in the Freedom Run.  Ok run, good workout, but hopefully doesn't show my true fitness.  ~3.5 miles cooldown.  Won a pack of 3 microfiber socks as a door prize, and we got a nice breakfast.  I got 4 helpings of the ham.

Went to frisbee afterwards for a few hours- hot but fun, as always.

Missed the evening run- didn't get home until after 11:30 pm.  Few miles short this week.  But supposing I was around 30 miles at the end of Wednesday, I did add almost 45 more the last 3 days with no long run.  90+ next week.
