Today was scheduled to be a 15mile run but my wife signed the family up for a 10K at Skyridge, so not a normal long run.  Went to the gym early and did 9 miles on the treadmill followed by weights and some laps in the pool.  The race started at Skyridge Highschool at 8:00 am, I could already tell it was going to be way too hot so I just planned on trying to keep a 7:30 pace.  My son was also running it, you could pretty much tell at the start line he didn't really have any competition so I told him to just go out fairly easy (6:30) pace for the first 3 miles and see where he was at that point.  I kept a 7:20 average pretty good for the first 4 miles but I could tell the earlier 9 miles and the heat were getting to me, I knew I was the 3rd place male cause I could see my son and 1 other guy ahead of me at the 2 mile turn. I got passed by a guy at around mile 3 but that only lasted about 200M before he died off, he must of burned up trying to catch me, I then passed the 2nd and 3rd place women at about 3.5.  The last 2 mile were up hill back up to the school and it was very hot, I really struggled and probably would have started walking but I knew I was 3rd place and that's the only think that kept me going.  My son took 1st place with a time of 39:1? 2nd place was 5 minutes behind him so great day for him, especially since his Xcountry couch told him today was a Xtrain day and no running.

woke up early and got my long run in today since I will be at the cabin tomorrow morning and 18 miles is pretty impossible up there.  Too many hills. Ran out of time and was a mile short of scheduled but glad I got it done

For some reason my Garmin was totally dead when I went out this morning even though I had it on the charger all night. It was actually nice to go for a run without a Garmin, I still knew where the 5 mile turn around was. 

I tried to do some speed work but it was pretty random, just ran hard until I got tired, slowed down until I felt recovered and ran hard again.

Didn't have anyone to run with, didn't want to make my wife drive me somewhere at 4:00 in the morning, so I just got up and started running.  Ran up the Murdock trail to Smith's then just kept going up SR-92 to AF Canyon, made it about 2 miles up the canyon until my Garmin said 11 miles then turned around and took a more direct route home for a total of 21.  I was expecting it to be lighter at 5:30 when I got to AF canyon but it was pitch black and I didn't have any lights or anything reflective so it was a bit scary with all the Saturday morning traffic but I managed to not get ran over.

I couldn't bring myself to run on the Hotel treadmill again today, so I did Elliptical instead.
