an old friend from high school posted on Facebook that he needed a running a partner for a 20 mile training run today.  I told him I'd run 14 with him, so I woke up at 3:30 this morning with my son and we drove to Layton.  Nice run along the new trail in West Layton,  I think we went a little fast for my friend and he ended up just bailing out when we were done at 14.

way fun run with my son this morning, had my wife wake up early and drive us to the top of Lake Creek Rd in Heber where it turns to National Forest, then we barreled straight down hill for 7.5 miles to the entrance to Timberlakes.  There was maybe 100 yards of uphill the entire run.  Very good time, perfect weather, perfect views.

I'm staying in a brand new hotel in Plano TX, so new it's not even open yet so I can't use the gym.  Ran outside and discovered this is a dreadful place to run, no shoulders on the roads, sidewalks that just dead end into fields, pathways that go nowhere and very hot and humid.  Wondering how I'm going to get a long run in this week.

So I mapped out a nice 7 mile loop on Google Maps last night, set out at 5:00am this morning in the dark.  I was very hot and I was pretty much hating life, at about mile 4.5 I ran out of sidewalk and realized I should be getting closer to the hotel not further and decided I better turn back and and go the way I'd came.  Good thing I did cause after retracing my route I'd missed my turn by about 2 miles and was completely running the wrong way.

I'm not sure if I was suppose to or not but this morning I went and used the gym in this new un-opened hotel.  pretty cool being the first person to ever use the gym, I was tempted to run 1 mile on each treadmill just to be the first person to use each one but that might have been weird.  Wanted to run 12 this morning but I didn't want to get caught using the gym if I wasn't suppose to be there so I stopped at 7:00.

I'm staying about a 1/2 mile away from the Frito-Lay head quarters, I've seen what looked like a trail on Google Maps but never went down that way cause there are no sidewalks and the road was always really busy.  Today is Sunday and there was no one on the road so I headed down that way.  There were signs all over than said Private Property no tresspassing on this perfect little running trail through the woods, over bridges and around lakes so I ignored the No Tresspassing part and just honored the running trail part.

Woke up early and ran on the Hotel Treadmill.  Today is opening day for this hotel if everything goes perfect I get to go home.

Woke up really early and had a nice run in the country here in Sheridan Wy.  Really nice morning glad to be out of the heat of Texas.    After my 10 mile run I woke up the kids and made them go do speedwork at the HighSchool track, had them do 10 x 400's, I want my 15 year old to win the local 5K on Friday so I had him run them in 80s, with 30 second rest.  He ran the last one in 63 to show off to some girls that were working out there :). I ran 8 laps with my 13 year old at around 8:00 pace.

Early 6 mile run before the Sneakers and Spurs 5K in Sheridan.  I ran with my 13 year old, he did OK, had to have a walk break at the 1/2 way point and ended up getting 24:3x, not a PR but it was really hot.  My oldest son took 8th place overall, which was good but the winning time was only 17:45, really surprised he couldn't run a sub 18:00 but he complained of being too hot also.

It's going to be a rough running week, 80 degrees and 90% humidity at 5:00am, and the hotel gym isn't that much better.  Ran 1 mile on the treadmill and thought I was going to passout so I just did the elliptical for 1 hour.

I just can't convince my body to run in the heat so I just did elliptical again.  I feel wimpy about it but maybe I needed a few days off from running anyway.

Really nice run in the rain this morning, warm but the rain felt good, I was suppose to do speed work but I seem to get hurt when I do that so I'm going to just try and get milage in.

Out to the drinking fountain and back, that's a long way to run just to get a drink of water.

Quad pounder down Lake Creek Rd in Heber. Bradin and I got a ride up to the top where the national forest starts and started out slowish cause we didn't want to hurt again like the last time but by mile 6 we decided to start having some fun, ran the last 2 miles at sub 6:00 pace, with about 1/2 mile to go he past me like I was standing still, I looked down and I was running 5:35 pace so I have no idea what he was doing.  He beat me by about 200M.

4 miles of hiking with the family after the run.
