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- BW.  None of the usual big workouts sounded interesting today, so I made up a new one.  I did 4 miles warm up, then did repeats- 2 miles@MP (5:55 pace), 1 mile@CV (5:35 pace), 2MP, 1CV, 2MP, with 1/4 mile rest between repeats.  Did the run on the Community Park trail, a .7 mile paved loop.  Very breezy w/18 mph sustained wind, which made it a bit interesting.  Splits were 11:50, 5:35, 11:49, 5:44, 11:38.  Had a sideache and really felt bad on the second CV, so I took an extra long rest to make sure I had some juice for the last one.  Genearally pleased with the workout.  3 miles cooldown, 16 miles total in 1:54:47 (7:10 avg).

PM- PWWF 4.

AM- 7, followed by 3 Einstein's bagels.  Not sure I lost any weight today...

PM- 8- ran to the canal trail.  You can run most of it, including .85 mile on the East half.

PM- BW.  No one wanted to run on the roads with me, so I ran trails.  Started at Merlin Olsen park, ran up Canyon Rd and the canal, then up the river trail to about .5 miles past 3rd dam.  6 miles warmup, then I did 5x4min at CV effort (effort, not pace- can't run 5:30 splits on technical singletrack).  First 2 repeats were on the way up (started mid-way up the main singletrack), last 3 were on the way down (finished just before 2nd dam).  Pace for the repeats was 6:50, 6:35, 6:19, 6:16, 6:46.  Entire run was 15 miles at 7:51 pace- my legs are very pooped.  2 BW and 1 long run w/BW in the past 6 days.  Time to start my taper.

AM- ATK club run.  Most of the people were doing 20+ for SGM, but Allie and Cody joined me for 14.  Cody wanted fast the whole way, I wanted slow, so we were debating and trying to change the other's pace the whole way.  Ran from TOU mile 3 to the end of Hollow Rd.  Perfect weather and a great tail wind.  Ended up being 13.84 miles in 1:38:43- is that a sign?  Foot felt ok, we'll see how some ice today and a massage help.  Now for the real taper.

Cody and I followed the online results of the Wasatch 100 all day yesterday and this morning- looks like Geoff Roes shattered the course record by over an hour, with Karl Meltzer close behind.  Corbin Talley should finish, and Davy Crockett is only 17 minutes behind his goal time after lagging as much as 35-40 minutes.  Ultrajim is still going strong, too.
