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- 8.5.  Spent all weekend trying to fix my darn computer.  Hate viruses.  At least the Broncos won and Pittsburgh lost (maybe the only time I root for Oakland).

PM- Pizza night at Planet Fitness.  I downed 2 pieces before I even started running, and ended up eating 5 pieces.  Maybe 6.  Not sure.  But I am sure I ran 10.5 miles while watching a combination of MNF pregame, Seinfeld, and Cash Cab.  Not too shabby.

AM- Over the past 2.5 months, I have done decent mileage but almost no speedwork.  I need to do some prior to the 100, so today was the first workout.  2 miles warmup, then 10 miles at 6:00 pace.  I'll admit it was very tough but I got through it.  .5 mile cooldown, then 2 bagels (courtesy of Planet Fitness).  12.5 miles total in 79 min.

AM- According to the Weather Channel, it was negative 10 deg F when I left on my run.  Without wind chill.  With wind chill, it was negative "you must have a death wish!"  So I did 14 miles on the treadmill at about 7:15 avg pace.

PM- 8 more.

AM- A couple miles warmup, then 6x 1 mile at 5:45 pace, with .5 mile recovery in between at 7:30 pace.  Finished with 10 total miles.  Hamstrings are both tight, but otherwise I feel fine. 

PM- 5.  Just for kicks and giggles.  Happy Friday, everyone.

AM- Nice morning for a run, practically a heat wave.  It was a full 30 deg warmer than yesterday morning... although since yesterday was -14F, today was still only 16F.  Several inches of snow fell overnight and I convinced Cody to do a favorite snow run of mine- run from our house to Dry Canyon, then along Deer Fence trail to Providence Canyon and home.  Traction was iffy on the roads but lots of fun on the trail.  12.5 miles total, Cody says it was 101 minutes.  Good mileage overall for the week.
