Was only planning on 8 today but I ran into Carina and ran a little further with her.

I decided I needed a long run to make up for my lazy week.  At mile 8 I was really starting to wonder if I'd make it home.

8 miles around East Heber, it's really hard to get a good run in at the cabin, too many hills so I drove down to where it was more flat.

Not a run, just an early morning hike around the cabin.

8 miles at the gym, I though it was going to be windy this morning so I planned a gym day.  I needed it anyway, I get lazy when I run outside.

6 super easy miles this morning.  9:00 avg pace.  I start my "official" training program for Big Cottonwood on Monday, I'm still about 20lbs over weight, hopefully following a program will shed that pretty quick.

Ran with my son this morning, we had a lot of fun pretty windy but I got some good faster miles in just trying to show off.  He can waste me the first 4 miles but then after that he kind of dies and I finally get warmed up.  Hopefully making him get a long run in once a week will give him an advantage come Xcountry season.

First day of following a training program, I dusted off an ond one I found from 5 years ago called "easy" I picked it over the "hard" once cause the hard had up to 95 mile weeks and I aint ready for that.  I don't think milage wise it is much different than what I was already doing, just has some speed work built in. 

Today was 8 miles with 10x100's.  along my run there is a 1 miles stretch on the path that is pretty straight and pretty flat, maybe a slight downhill so I choose that to do my speed work.  I had to go off my garmin for distance so I just did 10X .6 miles on and .4 mile rest for 1 mile.  it's had for the Garmin to settle in for only 6/10's of a mile but I was somewhere between 4:00 and 4:30 pace for all 10, much faster than I do on the treadmill so I felt pretty good but am going to be sore tomorrow.

I'm not just to fix my typos, just going to share my excuse.  I was putting in a new sliding door at my moms house this weekend and had to cut some carpet to fit it in, I ended up cutting more than carpet and chopped of the tip of my finger.  So I have a huge bandage on my left finger and literally fat finger alot.

I was kind of dreading todays run, 12 miles with 6 @ marathon pace, granted marathon pace ain't what it used to be, right now 7:30 is about where I'm at cause that's what I need for a BQ, hopfully in another 2 months that will be down closer to 7:00.   6 miles up to Highland then just tried to keep around 7:30 on the way back.  was able to run the last 3 a bit faster.

8 miles along Lake Ontario today, schedule called for 4 miles of LT but I forgot my Garmin and just wasn't feeling like pushing too hard this morning.  There was a lady on a bike that I stayed with most the way back which helped push the pace.
